There are two WordPress plugins I've used for managing 301 redirects: Redirection & Simple 301 Redirects. Either plugin makes it easy to define redirects from Old -> New. The WordPress Codex also has a guide to Creating an Error 404 Page. If that doesn't work, you may try contacting your web host to see if there's a configuration option you're ...

The report has recently been renamed: now you'll find the data under Acquisition > Search console > Queries. For this, you need to connect the Search Console with Google Analytics. In addition, this data is only for Google, not for Bing or other search engines like Yandex or Baidu.

This answer builds on the excellent answer by @Simo Ahava and an approach I posted to an external discussion (Advertiser Community Thread). Quick background: When users browse under each state ("Guest", "Member" or "Subscriber"), they get an entirely different experience, so it's important to discriminate activity between states during a session. Hence my ...

Just to provide an alternate method, you could also fire a tag multiple times without having to create tag copies by doing some fancy Custom HTML work, as outlined here: http://www.simoahava.com/analytics/firing-a-single-tag-multiple-times-in-gtm/#gref

It really boils down to the queries you expect to make. If you use hit-scope, you will be able to create segments that differentiate actions that take place within a session. So a user could start as a guest, then log in to become a Member, the pay for the subscription to become a Subscriber, and finally log out to become a Guest again. With a hit-scoped ...

It's not (currently) possible to archive or hide views or properties.

I guess your website is not https and since most traffic comes from github.com, which has https, the referrer will not be set. You can read it on the RFC page A user agent MUST NOT send a Referer header field in an unsecured HTTP request if the referring page was received with a secure protocol.

As per the documentation filters let you restrict the data that appears in the report meaning they apply to the report as a whole; it is not possible to have filters per tab. You do need to create different custom reports for each filter configuration.

I would recommend checking the bounce rate of the referral website. If it is above 90% then the traffic that you are receiving from this site is fake traffic. Many spam website sent auto generated traffic to the website to create attention. When I visited the website shown in the image, it seems the domain is expired. If this is the case then try to filter ...

There are two ways to keep your website deindex. Use noindex tag in your html code. This will tell crawler not to crawl your website for search engine indexing. Add disallow tag in the robots.txt file for not crawling your entire website.

Google will begin to index your site the moment it finds it, GA installed or not. I suppose adding GA to your site may help them find it faster, but if you do not want your site indexed you need to take explicit steps to stop that from happening with proper no-indexing and a robots.txt file. It is actually even a little more involved than that, so here is a ...

There is no reason for Google to index your website just because of the GA code (it might index it through other methods though, i.e. - links to your site). Moreover, Google obeys robots.txt and the META ROBOTS protocol, so to prevent your website from being indexed by Google, you may upload a robots.txt file with the following instruction user-agent: ...

The UserAgent Explanation here should be what you're looking for. You should be able to filter out the traffic source by filtering through using the user agent. Desktops and Laptops will use any of the following: 32-bit Internet Explorer 10 on 32-bit Windows 8: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.2; Trident/6.0) 32-bit Internet ...

The search console logs 404 pages as encountered by the bot The logs that you see on the server and on the console are different. A 404 on the server log won't necessarily reflect under Crawl Errors in the console.

I've started using the following code: RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://.*[bad_referrer]\.com/ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ – [F,L] This looks for the referrer, in your case semalt.com, and creates a bad request. If you want to add more conditions use [NC,OR] until you get to the last item. If mod_rewrite isn't available, this technique will not work. You ...

This isn't a direct answer to your question but to your problem: Try a hostname filter on your Analytics account instead. Filter only for your domain. The only situation in which you'll get views without your domain being the hostname is if you're serving content on other domains - such as via an iFrame. When it comes to crawlers, there's many techniques. ...

There's an easy way to do this with a look-up table. In my setup, I just insert {{UA Lookup Table}} into the UA ID. It will then check against the hostname and assign the correct one for that domain. If you mean report to several different UA codes - then no. You have to create a new tag for each pageview/event report. Use 'copy tag'.

It is possible that many or all of those sessions are coming from analytics spammers. Spammers have realized that they can inject data into your Google Analytics without ever even visiting the site. They simply make calls directly to Google's tracking scripts reporting that they have visited your site (even though they never have). They often do this ...

At the moment, there is no way to move properties from one GA account into another.

This sounds like a common misconception and understanding of linkage on the web and a typical view of many that are thinking about this all wrong... The average natural website's link profile will be made up of a higher percentage of nofollow links than followable links. This is common and to be expected. It isn't always the case though and some websites ...

Check to see if you are tracking your YouTube channel visits in Google Analytics. This would have required you to configure your YouTube channel with the tracking code. That would explain the www.youtube.com and m.youtube.com hostnames. You would also see these visits landing on pages like /channel/..... The inst.webinstantservice.com hostname is spam ...

Why not exclude the school's IP. See: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034840?hl=en Sorry. On my phone.

You can change the default page value in your school's computers to something like http://www.example.com/?utm_source=computerlab&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=bounceratestudy That will report out as a referral source named 'computerlab' Of course, you'll need to manually change every browser to add the analytics tags. :/

A homepage is basically the same as a bookmark that is always opened upon starting your browser (Most browsers offer you to hit a home button to go back to your homepage). Google Analytics offers no way to track bookmarks (There is no corresponding parameter). The referrer value that is passed to Google Analytics depends on where you come from. If you ...

Although I still do not know why it happened, I resolved the issue by moving remotebase.io to a new server. It took around 24 hours for the change to take affect. I also removed vym.io from Google using webmaster tools. I do not know for sure if doing so helped at all.

I think that, if you just want to be able to see the events separately for each language version, the best approach would be to create one view in Google Analytics for each language. You can do this by adding a filter to each view, so it would register only the traffic for the proper ccTLD of your project. You will have to filter by hostname. Then, each ...

@TC Dani, Please note I have no personal experience with this issue yet. I have a project coming up that will be multi-lingual... A quick google search brought me to this discussion: Here their discussion indicates you will need two different tracking codes and you could implement this as follows, noting the code is in PHP format: <script> <?php ...

Another problem, believe it or not, is the risk of certain links not working at all if badly implemented. I'm right now having problems with a link in a forum to Google Plus where the + sign in the path (not quarry) is replaced by %20 (a space) resulting redirection to an invalid location.

Your Conversion is probably not showing, because it does not originate from clicking a google ad prior to the conversion. AdWords only imports goals/transactions that can be tracked back to paid Google search ads.

Always put some query string attached to social posts like "utm_cource", "utm_campaign" and whenever user visit site, assign random identifier in session and using all these data, you can accurately track conversions from social sources. example: https://www.example.com/2016/06/04/how-to-track-social-media-campaign?utm_source=linkedin&utm_campaign=promo

There's a large number of possible reasons for this. Here's a few possible factors: All stats are estimated unless you're on Analytics Premium and pulling the full data. Google takes a sample and extrapolates. It's possible to invalidate records for a count if they have an unset field. Perhaps there were 841 aggregated clicks but one of the criteria for a ...

They are separate pages - the client is using a different request URI for each. Canonical links simply indicate the content has been duplicated. In order to get Analytics to treat them as the same, you'll have to rewrite the URI for the records. Pick the one you'd like to appear and create a custom filter in Analytics. Use Search and Replace on the Request ...

This is actually a well known and very old problem with social network referrals and some fields being undefined. It's largely referred to as 'dark social media traffic'. It's a term that covers other lost forms of social referral but this is one of the core issues. An example of a contributing factor to 'Dark Social Traffic' is Facebook's referral ...

As @nyuen pointed out the hostname is an optional query-string-parameter. What I failed to realize before is that Google Analytics automatically extracts the hostname from the full page url stored under the dl parameter, if the dr parameter isn't provided separartly. In general, it seems GA paramters which are not set are notlisted in the query string. As ...

In Firefox and Opera, the cache of 301 redirects is stored separately from the traditional cookie jar. By storing a cookie string in a 301 redirected url, you can effectively keep the same cookies for users even if the cookies are cleared. The current implementation of 301 redirect caching in Firefox and Opera allows for tracking of users who may ...

Yes you can track these click from Google webmaster (Search console) First let me breakdown all the process and explain what is deeplinking and app indexing.

There are a number of reasons why Google Analytics may not be showing the traffic your database shows...

What you'll want to do is register this as a custom dimension when the pageview is captured. You have two options: Use Google Tag Manager, and a Macro to capture the query string. When you fire the UA Pageview tag - add this captured variable into the Custom Dimension box. Using JavaScript to capture the querystring from the url (http://gomakethings.com/...
