No, whoever is doing it. He is not trying to help you. It may harm your AdSense account if you're using AdSense on your website. He is actually trying to get your Adsense account banned. You can contact - Hitleap Support and ask them to take your website off from their database.

Short of rethinking you URL structure (I'm with Stephen Ostermiller), you can use Virtual Pageviews and some conditional switching for this. On your template that displays single posts, you'll need to do some checking. Pseudo code... $region = get_the_region(); $lang = get_the_language(); Then, instead of the default call to GA: ga('send', 'pageview'); ...

If you can add GA code to your landing pages as well, do so. In your GA property settings, set the subdomain tracking, and you should be able to track the entire transaction from the landing pages. Alternatively, if you cannot add GA code to your landing pages, manually add UTM parameters to the landing page button and track that traffic on your GA. The ...

No you don't. Google mentions that the events tracking is part of analytics.js (which is what the default Universal Analytics snippet is calling). I'm sure you already saw this, but in case you didn't and you're wanting to confirm that you did the jQuery part correctly, here's Google's example.

I would argue it is essential for a company tasked with SEO work to be able to access Google Webmaster Tools and similar tools at least in a read-only capacity in order to review the website's performance and address issues raised, therefore I would suggest you carefully choose an SEO company that does not also work for your direct competitors to ensure ...

No, you don't need to make any changes. I'm assuming you are invoking the library and creating the tracker through the standard method. Your code should look something like this: <button onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'your_category', 'your_action', 'your_label');"> With jQuery, placing an event listener on the button: $('button').click(function(){ ...

If you have analytics ecommerce setup on the site then all transactions will be recorded. So I suppose that will tell you it's working. IF nothing is recording past the basket or checkout then make sure the tracking is on all the pages and that the ecommerce tracking code is on the confirmation page. @WilliamHarvey

They can find almost everything without your permission, every seo can do it for you and your competitors at the same time anytime. A seo professional can look at all those things without even you knowing about it. So they can find out everything about your site. And they don't have to ask you for permission because checking out the code your site sends to ...

Triggers are internal to GTM only and cannot be seen in GA. Depending on the type of tag you have created that is fired by the trigger, you may or may not be able to see tag in your GA reports as well (eg. Custom HTML, depending on how it is configured). An event tag for outbound link clicks should show up on your Behavior > Top Events report in GA, but not ...

They can do SEO without these tools but for doing it perfectly they need the access to Google Search Console and Google Analytics.

You should disable google analytics for that Page Only putting the following code before the Google Analytics Tracking Code in the <head> section <script> if(window.location.href==='http://www.example.com/example-page/'){ window['ga-disable-UA-XXXXXX-X'] = true; } </script> Where UA-XXXXXX-X is your website Google Analytics tracking ...

I solved it. It seemed to be a combination of things bad code - there were 2 instances of what I wanted to track displaying on the page but 3 in the code and I didn't spot it.[Bad code in this case being synonymous with poor user skill base ;] 2 GA scripts on the same page Working with the wrong UA account On the upside I know a LOT more about GA ...

Yes you need to give an SEO company access to your stats in order for them to track/validate historicals and fresh changes. However, it sounds like you should be working with a different SEO company. Just because they ranked your competition does not mean that 100+ other companies couldn't do the same or better, for the same or cheaper. This would be the ...

The SEO company can still effectively do their job without access to Google Search Console, but you are tying both hands behind their back. That said, if you don't trust them enough to give them access to your data, perhaps you're better off with a different firm.

If you want the SEO company to do their work properly, you should give them full access to the metrics. I'm understanding your concerns about shering the data, but everything is about trust, right? Also don't think your keywords are so hidden. In a professional SEO tools, you can check in which keywords some domain is ranking. I'll tell you why the SEO ...

Create a new view with a filter applied. You should, as a best practice, have three core views: a "Raw" view, where there are no filters applied at all. I typically replicate all goals in this view as well. a "Test" view to try out new filters and goals, etc. With this test view you can create a filter to filter out the unwanted URL. a "Master" view for ...

If the Analytic account is yours, you can go to "Admin", on the second column choose "Property settings". Now on property setting on left sidebar, choose your site and you can see the tracking code UA-ID

I would say yes. An effective SEO firm can do a perfectly fine job without these tools. However, there is a goldmine of information that can also help using the Google products. Many of the best SEO tools tie into the Google products for a reason. I would be more concerned that they even said anything to you about your competitor at all even if it was only ...

There are several things you could do, which all come from this article: http://www.analyticsedge.com/2014/12/removing-referral-spam-google-analytics/ (I have no affiliation with this site.) The fastest way is to create a "valid hostname filter". This a filter that is configured to accept traffic from only valid domains that you specify. The advantage of ...

Using the User Agent string works fine, just make sure that you are sending the string and that the data that you send will satisfy any filters that you have set up on your GA Property.

AFAIK, you still cannot specify the OS, through the MP, as that is specified through the user-agent, as you've mentioned. Similar question asked here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/google-analytics-measurement-protocol/5S4xEAxd1_o/ed9PJrOzd_UJ A similar question asked in SO: ...

Referral spam is a big problem in GA right now and I recently read something discussing "ghost referrals" and how they simply send hits to GA servers without ever visiting the site (it explicitly discussed the measurement protocol and how vulnerable it was). I have never used GA on an app but let me share my experience in case it helps: Don't use a GA ID ...

You can add UTM parameters for Google Analytics into your website URLs in Google My Business. To help you get there, using the campaign tags you can use the Store name or ID to filter your traffic in Google Analytics from Maps Results.

I finally found a solution to this which was to go back to good old fashioned Excel. I exported the pageview data from analytics as a spreadsheet and used this to do a lookup using my list of URLs. Worked a treat, so hope this helps anyone else with this problem.

Yes, of course. You can setup a custom dimension depending on tag parameter in URL. How it could be coded? Getting value of tag param and sending to analytics function visitor(key_str) { if(window.location.search) { var query = window.location.search.substr(1); ga('send', 'pageview', { 'audience': query }); }} Remember that custom dimension need to be ...

The best way top avoid this is to set up a filter for you property such that is only includes data with a specified Application ID. Now, simply send that Application ID with every hit that you send to Google Analytics and it will be included. The spammers won't know what application ID to use and so all their traffic will be blocked. Also, as mentioned by ...

Dashboards are private to you until you share them. If you develop a Dashboard that you think is useful to other users in your account, or to other Google Analytics users in general, you have several options for sharing it. You can share the Dashboard template with another property, although it won't have the data from the original property: The ...

Yes, you are missing out on a lot. Even though you can get a lot from both server logs and Google Search Console, you can get a more detailed picutre when utilizing all of them. There are times where analytics may not be needed. They both have their benefits and shortfalls as you see below. Log Analytics Server logs captures a gigantic amount of data that ...

Could be. I have a site which runs affiliate ads. We serve those ads via Google DFP, so to novice fraudsters the ads could easily be mistaken for CPC ads due to their doubleclick.com click-through URL. Some of these affiliate ads have CTR's well over 90%! I can only assume that someone somewhere is banging away on those ads hoping to cost a competitor ...
