It cannot be Google update as the drop is in direct traffic. See the country / location from which the traffic has been dropped, Is there any holiday? Or some other event? See your landing pages, check all those landing pages where traffic has been dropped significantly. Check whether there is any change in URL or the analytic code in those URLs?

I think that your "problem" is different type of attribution. Google Analytics uses last-click attribution, AdWords prefers first-click. So... if your client ever clicked an campaign ad created in AdWords and make a transaction in another session, it will be counted in AdWords as "adwords conversion". But in Google Analytics it will be conversion from that ...

I find that the Goals system in Analytics is not as reliable as we wanted. Same thing happen to other features and that is mainly because of the source of the tracking used by Google: Javascript. This means that the Code needs to be fired up in order to count as a Goal and depending on the user's security settings or device, that might not happen from time ...

Nothing is impossible, but unfortunately the reply to your question is that is very hard. If you want to take data from Analytics you'll have some problems: Analytics doesn't update the live results that matter to you such as Age and Gender, which means some time is needed to have data for that categories; Not even Google can know 100% of the profile of ...

Simple JQuery Cookie Solution. if (!$.cookie('myOrderReference')){ //insert analytics code here $.cookie('myOrderRefernce', true); } You should setup your script to dynamically insert the order reference instead of 'myOrderReference'.

I don't think a session level variable makes sense because a user could view pages from multiple markets in the same session. Sessions level variables are meant for things like where the user was referred from. The reason that Google doesn't report on all the data is because it uses "sampling" once a website gets enough traffic. Here is Google Analytics ...

This feature was re-introduced in September 2014 after it was discontinued back in 2011.

Gooogle Analytics can show you the performance by product if each your your products is on its own page. All you need to do is set the secondary dimension of your campaign report to "Landing Page". Then Google Analytics will break out your campaign by which page the visitor landed on when they came to your site: It will even show you your goal metrics ...

I'm honestly not sure why your implementation isn't working properly, but just wonder if its more to do with Google Analytics having changed how they work to now use what they call Universal Analytics, where instead of calling ga.js scripts now call analytics.js and Dimensions and Metrics have to be pre-configured in Google Analytics and assigned a numerical ...

Set up an intermediate page and once the transaction is sent change the windows location. The intermediate page will not appear in the browser back button history so the user will not be able to easily reload the page. // Send off the transaction ga('ecommerce:send'); $(document ).ready(function() { window.location = ...

Google has a terminology problem. They call it "drop off rate" in the user flow report but they call it "exits" in other places. There is an entire report that does exactly what you want. It tells you how many people dropped of or "exited" for each page on your site. It is available from: "Behavior" -> "Site Content" -> "Exit Pages". You can view ...

Goals - Conversion events To get Google Analytics to attribute conversions to your PPC traffic you need to configure Google Analytics for both campaigns and goals.

Your landing URL from your campaign is not ideal for Google Analytics tracking. I would recommend using the Google Analytics URL builder to add parameters to the URL. Specifically source=CPC would become utm_source=CPC. Google Analytics also likes it when you have other fields like the campaign name. When this tracking is in place, your campaign ...

You would have to include the hash portion in your pageviews like this: _gaq.push(['_trackPageview', location.pathname + location.search + location.hash]); if you are using classic GA, or like this if you are using Universal Analytics: ga('send', 'pageview', {'page': location.pathname + location.search + location.hash});

There are two possible solutions to this problem: 1) Use a server side script to prevent the tracking code to be shown multiple times. This could be done by checking if the transaction information made it into the database or not. OR You can try redirecting the user away from the receipt page after the ecommerce info has been sent to Google Analytics, then ...

JSFiddle does not offer Google Analytics tracking as a feature, but it can be done. Create a .js file with your Google Analytics tracking code and save this to a publicly accessible web hosting location. Then add your .js file as an external resource to all of your JSFiddles. Sadly this does need to be done to each Fiddle, BUT it keeps your code out of ...

You can still track "[...] custom events I created to know when someone watches our videos, clicks-through to a dealer website, or downloads a manual" using Google Tag Manager. You would use Click Listeners, Link-Click Listeners, Form Submit Listeners and Timer Listeners to trigger your events. Here is a great guide to Auto Event Tracking in Google Tag ...

I think the answer is (other) category in yours report. https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1009671 Result of that aggregation is that "all session" doesn't mean exactly 100% of traffic (in my report it's 76% in 2 week time period). Try to exclude url params to minify number of pages or shorten time period (I know you've selected only one week and ...

You've asked a question and found a solution M2Z ;) It is right way to create the subdomain for particular source e.g fb.domain.com for FB incoming traffic. You can add some UTMs for campaign/ad tagging, probably You know that. Remember to delay a redirection (something like "Please wait..." + 100ms waiting time), to be sure that analytics js was triggered ...
