You can do this using a Custom Report. Select the metrics and dimensions that you want to report on and then under the "Filters" section you would "Include" "Referral Path" "Exact (Exactly matching)" "A (or the path of the page you wish to filter traffic from". You might also add a second filter for Page "B" if you only want to see the traffic to this ...

You don't have to do everything listed as an optimization. If using a custom font is important to the design of your website then use it. You have a choice between a slightly slower (initial) page load and a better design versus a slightly faster (initial) page load and a slightly lesser design. If using that font improves your business somehow than it's ...

Yes it's an aggregate When you look at analytics in non real time reporting, you are actually seeing the traffic of the whole hour (60 minutes). When you look at 10AM on your real-time report, you see who's online that same moment.

Solution propsed by dm-guy is OK, but... avarage is useless :) So, I see two ways: a) build a custom report with: - metric: sessions (ga:sessions) - dimension: session duration (ga:sessionsDuretionBucket) Add second dimension: date (ga:date), export to Excel and made a graph ;) (You can use also Google Analytics Query Explorer 2) b) create a segment ...

Are these two accounts running on the same Google account? Did you check this box on the GA's account settings?

Make a custom report in the following way: Then you will see it like this: For a better analysis, look at the data per week, or per month. If you want to plot a trendline, then you can download it to excel (on daily, weekly, or monthly basis). I like to analyze the session duration data by breaking it down to different campaigns. But you can choose ...

I believe GA uses the user agent info to identify the device (whether it's real time or not). Run the following in your console, and you'll see the data: navigator.userAgent

By changing your WordPress theme, it's possible it removed the Google Analytics tracking code from your website. To be sure your site will be tracked again, you can verify that the HTML code of your site has this: <script type="text/javascript"> var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); ...

Following up on Oliver13, indeed the session duration in Google Analytics is not a good measurement. In addition, the data is usually averaged, so it does not really make sense to analyze it. To circumvent this shortcoming, I suggest you to use another tool, such as Mouseflow, which records the exact session length. If you have the time and the will, you ...

I agree with Anagio here. It is a matter of a best practice. The campaign name should be "Adwords Content Network", and the Source should have {placement}. You can also append "adwords content network: {placement}" if you want this field clearer in your reports. If your campaigns are time-based then make the campaign name "Adwords content network July ...

What you're trying to do is determine which keywords produce goals. It's really not possible using the SEO > queries data since these keywords are coming from Google webmaster tools which is not associated with GA data.

All different tools to measure website speeds are merely to be used as rough data that can help you improve load times and user experience over time. Consequently it's not surprising that even tools from one company are giving different numbers. And then I've looked at GA load times a few times and noticed they are so rough that they are completely not ...

You can add Landing Page metric (ga:landingPagePath) to e-commerce report in GA. I think it will resolve a problem fastest.

The problem you are facing is likely that the RealTime reports you see in GA are realtime, while the other reports take a while to generate. Much of what you can see in the realtime interface does not make it to actual reporting but for a few hours, or even a few days. If you can see them in realtime, then your code is configured properly and you just ...

But Google Analytics code should be able to track that data automatically which shows up under social interaction section in Google Analytics and in case you wish to integrate your Stumbleupon ID with Google Analytics then you can do the same under the advanced Social account integration section of Google Analytics. Or In case you use a third party ...

Negligible: about 30 ms to 100 ms I found the Pingdom page speed test to be easier to use than the Chrome tool. Here's what I found: Loading /index.php and then having the google .js experiment code reload a second page: total time: 1.37 s (avg of ( 1.40, 1.79 , .93 s(avg)) s Loading the secondary page (bypassing the index.php and the google .js ...

While I'm not sure I understand every detail of your question (what do you mean by spending report? E-Commerce section of GA? Custom report?), this sounds like sth. that should be fairly easy to implement. But you should probably ask yourself: Is it helpful? Is a long visit duration a better one or just one where the user needed longer to understand your ...

You have not added the tag in the correct place, it should be with the <head> </head> tags. This could be the reason why it isnt tracking. Also if your are using the Tag Assistant plugin for Chrome, it should have pointed this error out to you, did it not? Have you double checked you have pasted in the correct code? Sounds obvious but had a ...

You can use Segments. Near the top of the report page, you should see a box with a circle, and next to it the words "All Sessions." That's the default segment. To the right of that box is the "Add Segment" box. Click it. Then click the New Segment button. In the case of Countries, you'll have to create an Advanced Segment using Conditions. See the picture ...

It might take a while for it to update your status. Have you tried going to your Real-Time Tab - Overview (it right above Audience Tab) and see if you are capturing hits? If you see hits then you are good to go. In some cases tracking code status doesn't update ever but data gets sent to your property. Note: if you have a filter set to exclude your own IP ...

Is not "Conversions > Goals > Goal-URLs" what you want? Possibly GOAL is called differently, I don't see the english g:Analytics - it's the first option under the flag-icon .. my URL changes to something like https://www.google.com/analytics/web/#report/conversions-goals-uri/this_bit_is_specific_to_your_account/

The easiest way would be to give your tags a specific class and data- attributes. Something like: <a href="url" class="paid-text" data-reftype="Paid Text" data-refname="Text Block Name">Paid Text</a> Then you would go into Google Tag manager and set up the following: 1) Link Click Listener tag to fire on all pages 2) Event Tracking tag 3) ...

"Next page path": the next page after visiting the page you have selected for analysis "Second page": the absolute second page of the visit. Second page works if the page you are currently viewing, is indeed the landing page (first page) of the visit. If you are viewing data of a page the visitor just viewed somewhere during his visit, it is not the next ...

You don't need to use an iframe. This tracking code is for universal analytics. There are a few ways you can push this into Google Analytics: 1) Trigger an Event on submit You can use Javascript for this or jQuery $('#button').on('click', function() {ga('send', 'event', 'button', 'click','Form Completed');}); 2) Trigger a Virtual Pageview on submit ...

You should create a separate View for just desktop visits and create two filter to exclude mobile and tablet visits. Create A New View: Go to Admin -> View -> Create New View -> Name it - Desktop Only Create you Filters 1) Go to Admin -> Desktop Only View -> Filters -> New Filter 2) Filter (Exclude Mobile) -> Filter Type: Custom Filter -> Exclude -> ...

The biggest reason is that you are using the wrong view. Make sure that the id in the tracking code is consistent and not -01 for mobile and -02 for desktop.

You'll have to create virtual pages for each step, and set up a goal funnel accordingly. So on each step you've described in your question you'll have to send a pageView on each event. In case of an actual redirect you really don't have to send the event manually. My advice would be that you should streamline the steps into one javascript function, that way ...

It depends whether you are using older ga.js code or the new universal analytics (analytics.js).In the older code you can send data to 2 or more profiles simultaneously using this method: var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount','UA-12345-6']); _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker',true]); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); ...

You can detect if your page is being loaded in an iframe or not. See this question for how to do that. By doing this, you could then send a custom variable to GA which says if a user came from within an iframe or not. That would not tell you which specific iframe it came from, just how many users saw your site from within a frame. If you want more ...

I'd probably run a crawler to collect all the URLs of your 1.5 site (a sitemap generator, or link checker should do this for you). When the site is live, Joomla 2.5 has a redirect manager (under components) which lists all the URLs which have thrown a 404. You should use the redirect manager to set up 301s on all the pages you know have changed. If you ...

Very likely an automated script hitting your site and trigger analytics to fire. PHP can be a valid user agent, at least according to http://www.useragentstring.com/pages/useragentstring.php I would drill down in to the PHP analytics and then view the location of those visitors, time on site, page views and more to try and determine if it's a script or ...

Using chrome developer tool, load the page and view the Timeline tab in dev tools. Do this for each version of the page and see if the variations are taking longer to load.

Google says: By default, the event hit sent by _trackEvent() is considered an interaction hit, which means that it is included in bounce rate calculations. So if someone triggers one of your events, it is then not considered a bounce. You can get around this by adding an opt_noninteraction parameter to your _trackEvent()

You are tracking how all registered and all unregistered users behave, not how individual users behave. A user changing from one group to another will change which group any data collected from that user falls into. It would simply not make sense to change the previous data collected since the way they behaved when unregistered is an example of how an ...

This would be the correct answer to the question. To count impressions, we just need to place a 0 size image with onload parameter: <img width=0 height=0 src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAP///////yH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==" onload="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Banner', 'Impression', 'BANNERNAME',2.00,true]);"/> But the flaw of this ...

I ran into this same issue at a previous company and it was a mess (one guy actually lost his job due to bad URLs being used for tracking paid search and no one understanding why GA showed different results than Kenshoo...). You can come up with a custom workaround using JavaScript to inspect the URL query string to look for UTM params after a #! then ...

I dont think the GA will kick-in after #! I guess (and correct if my speculation is wrong), that your #! site is using the front controller pattern (just like WordPress and its index.php). In which case, can't you tweak your framework to move away from #! and towards something more friendlier? Your problem is that # generally indicates anchor tags within ...

This is what I'd do, although keep in mind that you probably have to inform the sites where your widget is being displayed about this approach (since it would help avoid confusion for that person running analytics on that site). In your widget, include your GA tracking code, send a "widget load" event. When the widget is clicked, send the "widget click" ...

This should work... RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} semalt\.semalt\.com [NC] RewriteRule .* - [F,L] ...will force a 403 error. Otherwise... RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} semalt\.semalt\.com [NC] RewriteRule .* http://www.gosomewhereelse.com [R,L] ... will send them some where else. (just change the domain name please.)

Interesting question Nick! As far as I know, in the use case you just described, Google Analytics would treat this as follows - The thumbnail gallery can be tracked The click on the thumbnail can be tracked using event tracking If the user clicks on an image, that would be treated as an exit If the user uses back and comes back within the session ...
