Opening new tabs or windows does not cause Google Analytics to start a new session for the user. Google Analytics starts new sessions when: There is no existing session cookie The existing session is more than 30 minutes old There is an external referrer on the request None of these apply to a request opened in a new tab.

When you have multiple GA trackers on the page, you need to make sure that you assign a unique name to each tracker, so that whatever hits you send will be sent to the correct GA property. For example, if you send in an event hit and you haven't named your trackers, that event hit could potentially be sent to both properties because they have the same name ...

R. Hill says: "The domain for Google Analytics is google-analytics.com, not googleanalytics.com. You had a typo in your rules. They should be: * analytics.google.com * allow * google-analytics.com * allow * googletagmanager.com * allow As for stats.g.doubleclick.net: That domain is used by Google for re-marketing tracking. It tracks sites you have ...

Pixl's answer explains why you are getting the "Duplicate Campaign Parameters" message from Google Analytics. However, your question also appears to be looking for where these campaign parameters are coming from. In the comments Pixl also pointed out that anybody could link to you with those parameters. Another possibility is that someone (accidentally or ...

In Analytics: Acquisition > Channels click on "Organic Search" - this gives the report with the evolution of organic traffic. On the top of this graph you see Sessions vs (Select a Metric) - click on the (Select a Metric) and start typing "Bounce rate" in the search field - select when the field appears. This should be the graph you're looking for.

The article states: This feature will automatically filter all spiders and bots on the IAB/ABC International Spiders & Bots List from your data. The thing is not all spam bots make it to that list in time to be detected. At any point, the IP address of the spam bot can be changed as well as the user agent it identifies itself as, especially if ...

It shouldn't cause a problem at all. I think you're applying human thinking to a computer problem. If the pages are different then analytics will treat them as separate chains of links. No issue whatsoever. Of course the actual issue is with someone looking at the different reports / goals in 6 months remember the differences, and report correctly back to ...

This error can be caused by different teams of people using the campaign tagging system internally and not keeping a consistent naming convention. If that isn't the problem it can also be caused by third parties add UTM campaign parameters to links pointing to your site with common words with different casing. The best way to resolve this error would to ...

You seem to mix two completely different things. You mention that you don't see the pages indexing in the Search console - but the code you give is the Analytics tracking code - which is completely unrelated to the Search Console. The fact that you messed up your Analytics tracking code will not have an effect on the indexing. That said - your analytics ...

Another possible solution would to create a new view under your UA property with a filter that is configured as the following: Filter type: Predefined Include only | Traffic to the hostname | That Begin With then set your hostname using regular expression for your URI for example in your case will likely be ^/title/id/(.) You can read more about regular ...

Yes, absolutely. With each pageview you send, you would need to capture, via some JS, the specific part of the string you are interested in and then push that into a CD. The CD would be hit-scoped.

The easiest way to track traffic by source is Google Analytics is to use the "campaigns" feature. This requires that you put "utm" parameters on the landing page for each franchisee. Here is the page where you can build URLs with the correct parameters: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en Then instead of ...

When in doubt, parse your server logs for stats. Using a 3rd pary javascript embedded is prone to the following issues : Browser/plugin/user prevents loading of the script. Corrupted/broken script in transit. Script server goes down or is slow. Your web server knows who has accessed what resource, when, where, and even where from. The server logs have ...

Bounce Rate as it's defined by Google Bounce Rate is the percentage of single-page sessions (i.e. sessions in which the person left your site from the entrance page without interacting with the page). You only have one page, so there is only so much a user can do which could be defined as interaction with the page. Often this would be clicking ...

I don't believe bounce rate is real, that is describe in Google analytic, because there are many of Spam bots, that visit thousand of website and create 100% bounce rate. Just search this query in Google block spam referral traffic site:productforums.google.com, and you will see lot's of post with spam referral traffic. I know, you are not talking about it, ...

It only has one page and you have a bounce rate of 83%? Bounce rate means they only visited one page and then left. If it is only a page that should be 100%. Don't worry about bounce rate for a single page website.

I suggest two solution for you. First one is best, second one is good. Use Google Tag manager : With Google event tracking, you will be able to track that kind of data easily. If you did not know anything about Google tag manager, so here is good channel, that I found in YouTube. Use meta refresh tag: Normally GA track visitors data, once browser load any ...

First of all get some buffer for knowing what is the traffic on your website. after knowing this analyse what people (demographics) like what kind of pages. after analyzing this put them in different segments and target them seperately.

The double analytics code will affect bounce-rate and page-views, but it WILL NOT affect sessions (visits) as Irene wrote. The pages / session will definitely change since the pages are counted twice. The reason that sessions stay the same is that the user is still the same user, just with two page-views. I am writing this after removing duplicate codes ...

You can use the free service "Clicky" which integrates with the GA data and gives you an easy to use breakdown of all users visiting a certain page, with their respective time on that page.

I send the pageview on DOM ready. Assuming you mean on the DOMContentLoaded event, there's a problem all in itself. The tracking script is asynchronous and deferred, meaning that it purposely defers its loading (as to not block the rest of the webpage from loading) and isn't guaranteed to be fully complete when the DOMContentLoaded event fires. Try ...

Segments aren't the best option here because they're designed to apply a set of conditions to all Sessions and/or all Users and subsequently segment that data from the entire dataset. What you're trying to do is just exclude a certain page (or set of pages) from the dataset, which is a bit different. For instance, when the filter is applied that excludes ...

Two possible options: Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages report and apply a regex filter for the page which contains ^\/locations\/location\-.* Behaviour > Site Content > Content Drilldown, click into the "locations" folder (and apply filter if necessary for location\-.*)

Have you been able to see which pages, hostnames, browser, and networks this event is coming from? This type of event sounds like spam to me. Also bolstered by the fact that they're soliciting your visit! This site gives you good info on how to combat this nuisance.

No need to create a custom report. You can add a secondary dimension of "Time" → "Month of the year" to the "Behavior" → "Site Content" → "All Pages" report:

From https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1116091?hl=en#matchTypes Regular Expression Match—for matching on multiple criteria: A regular expression uses special characters to enable wildcard and flexible matching.

With a little bit of care, you should be fine to keep the same property if it's a new website on the same domain. Some of the major areas to consider are: Implementation Issues: If your new website is heavily dependent on AJAX, you may need to establish Single Page Application Tracking. Event Tracking: You'll need to reconfigure any event tracking you ...

As they are separate properties, I don't think this is possible within GA. What I would do, it combine the CSV files for all of the different properties into one location. (Excel etc). You could even set up automatic emails to send you this report from all of the properties to save you some of the leg work.

Please DO A/B test the design however, use Google's analytic tool, "Experiments", to do this. https://developers.google.com/analytics/solutions/experiments-feature-reference I have used this several times, with good success and never experienced a penalty as a result.

Google does not use Google Analytics for the purpose of choosing which ads to show. Google AdSense ads set their own third party cookies. Google tracks users across multiple domains with cookies set by ads, not with cookies set by Google Analytics.

It is okay to register a Google My Business account with the business owner's google account, or a google account you create for them on their behalf. This is the better solution for the business owner as well, because it gives them full control and access, and it avoids the business owner having to log in to your own account if they want to make changes. ...
