If you change how events are reported to Google Analytics it will not cause historical data to change. You will always be able to query the historical data is it has been reported. If you change the "category" or "action" of any event going forward, then you may have to maintain two sets of reports -- one for historical data, and one for data from the ...

No, unfortunately it's not literally 100,000 different people. More accurately, it's 100,000 different cookie values. A user can visit your site for the very first time and be counted with a first unique visit, but if they clear their cookies, or log in from a different computer, or do private browsing, then a subsequent visit would be "unique" again. So ...

You need to click "Edit" and then add a site to Webmaster tools. The Save button is just to save the Property settings.

Not sure you can do it historically, but for the future, I think if you just use the same embedded code on each site it will do that. I discovered this by accident :P

Analytics events can be found in your standard reports under Behavior > Events.

@Stephen Ostermiller 's answer is correct. If I could suggest something that might make things a little easier. Using Google Tag Manager you can automate the process and it will also give you more flexibility. Check out this article on UTM Campaign Parameters from LunaMetrics. This will save you a lot of time.

I am not aware of any mainstream tracking platforms that will track minors. The only few solutions I could think of are: 1) Make users sign up for something and ask for their age. Something Like a user profile. 2) Do surveys on your site that ask that question. You can do a standard survey or you can do something like pop-up lightboxes with a question. Be ...

Short Answer is no. The answer provided by @zigojack will work. Thing is, is it worth going through all the trouble? In-Page analytics is there for convenience and at times can be misleading. You have a wealth of information inside your GA account so I would just use that.

Use the list of events in the realtime report. It will tell you what each and every event actually is. You can access it with the "view" link on the realtime events report:

You have two courses of action. Your first is as you already suggest: create a redirect from the landing URL to a URL with the correct tracking parameters on it. That will work, and it is probably the simplest approach. The other approach is to create a "Segment" for these users and view your e-commerce reporting with just that segment applied. To ...

How is your German traffic accessing your site? Have you looked at your site's link profile? A tool like Moz's Open Site Explorer, Majectic SEO, or Ahrefs can help you determine whose linking to your site and the geographic location of the site hosting the links. Although I'd start with Analytics referral traffic.

To get Google Custom Search terms to show up in Google Analytics, you need to have the custom search submit URL parameters to your site that Google Analytics can read. The code for the search box on my site looks something like this: <form action="/search" id=search-form> <input type=hidden name=cx value="partner-pub-123456789:987654321"> ...

I study this kind of traffic as part of my research. Simply put, these are bot visits. You know this because of the hit and run nature of most bots that are not scrapers. This is evident in the number of pages and the bounce rate. Bots, including scrapers, often result in a %100 bounce rate. But without further data, I cannot tell you much about your ...

You can track that through Google Analytics. You would need to "tag" all the URLs in your emails with tracking parameters using the Google Analytics URL Builder. Then Google Analytics would show you a campaign report similar to this: (image source) Here is an article that has best practices for email newsletter tracking with Google Analytics with ...

Blocking a whole country like Germany is not recommended since its generally high quality traffic. Ukraine and China however are extreme spammers and you can get away with country block due to their low quality everything. You should first start to log user agents and IP's from Germany to deduce what type of user they are. If you find its scattered and ...

That's easier using Google Analytics Beacon. You can put a 1x1 transparent image anssociated to a specific url and your Google Analytics ID to track any click or event over tour webapp.

The validation conversion rate is just a "prediction", but when you see you actual conversion rate it is 0 because the goal hasn't taken effect yet. You will need to wait a day for conversion rates to be non-zero, assuming you get actual conversion until then. Goals are not retroactive either.

Another way of asking your question is: "How many users had at least one download during this time period?" You can use "segments" to answer this question. Create a segment only for users that have a "download" event. Select the "Audience Overview" report Change the main metric dropdown from "Sessions" to "Users" Click "+ Add Segment" Click "+ New ...

No, you won't get better results simply from using Google Analytics and Google doesn't favour sites with Google Analytics over sites without it installed. Google Analytics is of course a great analytic tool and when the data is studied correctly, it can influence on your SEO efforts and thus can indirectly affect your SEO. (As could any other types of ...

Many reports in Google Analytics will now let you compare up to four segments. All you have to do is add the segments that you want to compare to your report. For example, I have added several segments to this Audience Overview report:

Google's Content Experiments is meant for separate A/B URLs, but it can be hacked to use the same URL, as described in this article. The general idea is to: Use the usual Content Experiments wizard, Fill the 2 A/B URL fields with dummy URLs, Insert JavaScript code to modify page content on the client side. Thanks Eike for the link!

As well as the GA Debug Chrome Extension, there is another extension by Google called Tag Assistant. This will check your installation of the GA code on your page and will let you know if there are any issues or errors with the current tag.

There is a Chrome Extension called GA Debug which is useful for seeing what tags are being fired on your website. Install that extension, right click the page and 'Inspect element', go to the 'console' tab and then navigate to the pages you are interested in. If your tags are firing, they'll appear in the output below. As I mentioned in the comment, ...

Google Analytics is not sufficient for your use case. Your system doesn't have real time access to the data collected by Google Analytics for a particular user. Because of this, you can't use Google analytics data to change what is later displayed on the site to the user. You may want to use Google Analytics to track which products get viewed on your ...

For a single page, Google Analytics is already giving you the number you want: "unique page views". Pageviews -- The number of times the page has been viewed (including multiple times by the same user). Unique page views -- The number of sessions that have included a view of the page. Source: ...

Create a filter on Google Analytics that will exclude this traffic: The regex is: https:\/\/.* However, it's always a best practice to keep the raw data (that is, in your case, both http and https) intact, and to apply the new filter on a new View.

Use segments to view this report for only the users that have viewed both sections of your site. Click "+ Add Segment" from the behavior flow report. Click the red "+ New Segment" button. Click "Advanced conditions". Where it says "Ad Content", change it to "Page". Enter an expression that matches the URLs for the first section of your site. Hit the "AND" ...

It can't be done in the Google Analytics admin panel, but it can be done programmatically by your server. You can put some extra JavaScript in your snippet to send Analytics the full campaign info based on your shortened form. Here is how it might look if you use PHP with Universal analytics: ...

I study this stuff. Oddly, the answer is probably much simpler than you think. It would not surprise you to know that spammers are still spandexing search engines and using automated software to find content to use and sites to link to. Once a junk site is created, then bots begin to spider the junk sites and follow links. Get ready, this will happen a lot. ...

It could be a case of Referer Spam. i.e. It's an automated bot that repeatedly visits your website with a fake referer in the header.

Do you have a script of a 3rd party service, such as of remarketing or audience analysis, on your site? There was an issue with Adroll lately. Their script was a source of a lot of unusual traffic. Try to disable those and see what happens. Otherwise, can you retrieve more data about this traffic from GA - What's the OS/browser version? Is Java supported?

I see that you use jQuery on your website. Despite being unable to write attributes onto the links, you can include this snippet of JavaScript which will log a Google Analytics event before sending the user to the link. function logeventga(category, action, label, value, callback, nonAction){ var event = { 'eventCategory': category, ...

I second dm-guy that Google Analytics campaigns is the best way to track this. If your referral code determines the content of the site, you will still have to cookie it yourself: With Universal analytics the campaign information is stored on Google's servers rather than directly in the cookies, so you can't access it to change the page. You will still ...

Using GTM, you could establish a link click listener that fires on all pages, and then create an "Outbound link" tag to fire whenever a link is clicked. You can collect the href attribute of the link to pass into your event as well. That's it in a nutshell, but there's more details here if you like: ...

Sub-domain.example.com is a separate site from example.com. This means that any traffic for sub-domain.example.com will not be reflected in example.com. However, example.com/sub-domain would be part of example.com and therefore the traffic would be reflected in example.com This fact is dictated by the web server.

Google should not slow you down much. You can move the JavaScript code to the bottom of the page which may help with loading. If that does not speed things up enough, then consider the following. You will need a performance analysis tool. There are several to chose from. http://piwik.org/ is likely the best or near the best. Piwik is not a log analysis ...

I have never run across a setting for that. In general, Google Analytics doesn't record page tiles. Other reports such as "Site Content" show URLs rather than page titles as well. Seeing human readable data in Analytics is one reason that sites like this one use a "URL slug" with the title of the page in the URL: ...

For this purpose you have the Events Flow report, under Behaviour-->Events.

Funnels would be set up in the same page where you define your goal. In particular, you would need to define a destination goal, and then set the "Funnel option" on, and then define your funnel steps. More information can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1032415?hl=en

You can't backdate your goals, but you may be able try a "Search and replace" filter of the URL. More info on that can be found here. It would look something like: Search string: /goal\.html Replace string: /cart/goal\.html
