Google Analytics is not sufficient for your use case. Your system doesn't have real time access to the data collected by Google Analytics for a particular user. Because of this, you can't use Google analytics data to change what is later displayed on the site to the user. You may want to use Google Analytics to track which products get viewed on your ...

For a single page, Google Analytics is already giving you the number you want: "unique page views". Pageviews -- The number of times the page has been viewed (including multiple times by the same user). Unique page views -- The number of sessions that have included a view of the page. Source: ...

Create a filter on Google Analytics that will exclude this traffic: The regex is: https:\/\/.* However, it's always a best practice to keep the raw data (that is, in your case, both http and https) intact, and to apply the new filter on a new View.

Use segments to view this report for only the users that have viewed both sections of your site. Click "+ Add Segment" from the behavior flow report. Click the red "+ New Segment" button. Click "Advanced conditions". Where it says "Ad Content", change it to "Page". Enter an expression that matches the URLs for the first section of your site. Hit the "AND" ...

It can't be done in the Google Analytics admin panel, but it can be done programmatically by your server. You can put some extra JavaScript in your snippet to send Analytics the full campaign info based on your shortened form. Here is how it might look if you use PHP with Universal analytics: ...

I study this stuff. Oddly, the answer is probably much simpler than you think. It would not surprise you to know that spammers are still spandexing search engines and using automated software to find content to use and sites to link to. Once a junk site is created, then bots begin to spider the junk sites and follow links. Get ready, this will happen a lot. ...

It could be a case of Referer Spam. i.e. It's an automated bot that repeatedly visits your website with a fake referer in the header.

Do you have a script of a 3rd party service, such as of remarketing or audience analysis, on your site? There was an issue with Adroll lately. Their script was a source of a lot of unusual traffic. Try to disable those and see what happens. Otherwise, can you retrieve more data about this traffic from GA - What's the OS/browser version? Is Java supported?

I see that you use jQuery on your website. Despite being unable to write attributes onto the links, you can include this snippet of JavaScript which will log a Google Analytics event before sending the user to the link. function logeventga(category, action, label, value, callback, nonAction){ var event = { 'eventCategory': category, ...

I second dm-guy that Google Analytics campaigns is the best way to track this. If your referral code determines the content of the site, you will still have to cookie it yourself: With Universal analytics the campaign information is stored on Google's servers rather than directly in the cookies, so you can't access it to change the page. You will still ...

Using GTM, you could establish a link click listener that fires on all pages, and then create an "Outbound link" tag to fire whenever a link is clicked. You can collect the href attribute of the link to pass into your event as well. That's it in a nutshell, but there's more details here if you like: ...

Sub-domain.example.com is a separate site from example.com. This means that any traffic for sub-domain.example.com will not be reflected in example.com. However, example.com/sub-domain would be part of example.com and therefore the traffic would be reflected in example.com This fact is dictated by the web server.

Google should not slow you down much. You can move the JavaScript code to the bottom of the page which may help with loading. If that does not speed things up enough, then consider the following. You will need a performance analysis tool. There are several to chose from. http://piwik.org/ is likely the best or near the best. Piwik is not a log analysis ...

I have never run across a setting for that. In general, Google Analytics doesn't record page tiles. Other reports such as "Site Content" show URLs rather than page titles as well. Seeing human readable data in Analytics is one reason that sites like this one use a "URL slug" with the title of the page in the URL: ...

For this purpose you have the Events Flow report, under Behaviour-->Events.

You can use UTM query string parameters and assign each of them to a different campaign, which will mark the affiliate. On GA you will be able to analyze the traffic according to this specific campaign and see how many converted. For example, you can do: ...

Funnels would be set up in the same page where you define your goal. In particular, you would need to define a destination goal, and then set the "Funnel option" on, and then define your funnel steps. More information can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1032415?hl=en

You can't backdate your goals, but you may be able try a "Search and replace" filter of the URL. More info on that can be found here. It would look something like: Search string: /goal\.html Replace string: /cart/goal\.html

You can create a custom segment that includes users that had a specific event category during their session: When you reach the events flow report, use that one and the data will be filtered accordingly. As for ignoring that page, you can exclude it from the reports using a filter. Go to admin-->filters and create a filter like the following: The ...

I just checked your page and noticed that Google Tag Assistant is indicating that the tag is installed correctly. I observed that your page is sending a pageview hit back to GA as well. Your GA code looks good on your site - correctly placed. Are you still having problems? You can also check in Real-Time reports if you are tracking hits. If you are, then it ...

It looks like google analytics is tracking the incorrect url. Check your code to make sure it is placed correctly on you site, hosted or otherwise, and then make sure it is directed at the correct URL.

The biggest mistake with analytics is not having any. It is far better to have some insight into your data, even if it isn't perfect, than to be running a website with no visibility into what your users are doing. Nothing is "absolutely essential" to set up before you enable Google Analytics. Something like excluding your staff is a nice to have, but it ...

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 ...
