From March 20 to 30, you will have both "yes" and "no". For the 20th to the 24th, the user will fall into the "no" bucket (and "yes" for the 25th to 30th). This is because of how user-scoped CDs work. If the value of the CD is changed (or applied) for a particular session, then all the hits for the current session as well as all the future hits for future ...

You can now do this as part of their Google Analytics Management API.

Google Analytics has this very useful feature called "Universal Analytics" that allows Cross-Device-Tracking, and thus Cross-Browser-Tacking. I am afraid that this only works if you let your user sign in, because this is actually what enables GA to recognize a user once he visits your website from a different device/browser, and GA will then show him as one ...

If your question is, can I group multiple goals together to make a goal flow the answer is that you wouldn't use multiple goals to create a goal flow but funnels from goals. Also know that you can only create funnels on URI based goals. Here's a link

The pageview metric is incremented with every page load or reload, whereas the unique pageview metric is only incremented once per session. You could get a pageview count greater than 1, but your CD would only show 1 as it is session scoped. So you should be comparing your session-scoped CDs against unique pageviews instead.

Yes, that's how it should happen. You tell the devs to populate, from the backbend, if a user is logged in or not, and then you populate your custom dimension with that value for every page.

Time for an update! It's not 100% resolved, however having updated the sitemap and robots.txt to ensure that all were pointing to HTTPS, traffic is now at about 85% of what it was. It seems to be gradually climbing again, and one explanation for lower traffic/searches is due to seasonal demand. So I think for now the issue is resolved, though I'm ...

This is not possible using Google Analytics, unless you implement a server side proxy script, that sends a request to Google Analytics before sending the PDF file to the browser. See https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/protocol/v1/ I would suggest that you use Google Webmaster Tools, which allows you to see search requests from ...

It's harder to do with dynamic buttons, but assuming you don't have a static CSS ID that you can target off of for each button, and that the button text doesn't change ("Sign In", "Sign up now", "Access App"), then, yes, you can use GTM and a link click listener to track these clicks. You may need to add some additional logic, via custom JS, to see if the ...

The only required elements for the transaction data is a transaction ID, and the only required elements for the transaction products are the transaction ID and the name of the product, as indicated in the same link you posted.

You can create a custom report with Goal XX Completions (ga:goalXXCompletions) as a metric and Minute Index (ga:nthMinute) as a dimension. Minute Index means index for each minute in the specified date range. Index for the first minute of first day (i.e., start-date) in the date range is 0, 1 for the next minute, and so on. Instead of Minute Index you can ...

The lines you've added to the javascript are missing square brackets (compare your code to the documentation you linked to). It should be: _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']); _gaq.push(['_setLocalGifPath','http://www.site.tld/sites/all/themes/site/images/1px.gif']); _gaq.push(['_setLocalServerMode']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

Your telco should be using a sub-domain that identifies you in a manner of speaking. It will change each time you connect your cable, dsl, or heaven forbid- dial-up. Each time, you will get an IP address that is tied to a sub-domain name by your carrier. You can get this by accessing something on your website and checking your log file. You may have to wait ...

If the page isn't a landing page, source / medium dimension means that the page was viewed by user who came to your site from that source. You can check Previous Page Path (ga:previousPagePath) to identify what was a step before.

I could imagine (by a far stretch here) that the "bots and spammers" people don├čt like https because it drains more resources on there end (too) so they just crawl and visis http.

I changed three of my websites from http to https and all of them entirely different niche aswell. Take for example Pakistan broadband forum which I changed from http to https and did everything by the book. 301 redirects and google webmaster tools site change and even all the internal links that were posted using http in the url were changed to https over ...

You may want to test if your webserver is configured properly to serve HTTPS. If not configured correctly, it is possible that the browsers are throwing a warning page to the users and the users are choosing not to visit your site. Tools such as this one from Qualys SSL Labs can tell you if there is an issue. Aim for an A rating

Check the segments you are looking at, as well as view filters and channels. It could be that someone created a filter for the view you are in, and it is no longer logging that data in the view.

Next step I do - look at channels - views was fallen in all channel\source\medium or just in one of them? If it take only one channel - look at reasons. If it occure everywhere - this is system mistake.

First of all, remember that Flow reports are sampled after 100K sessions Be aware that in Flow reports you don't see particular page, but set of pages (starting with URL; some of them could be one-page-group) Drop off rate is calculated by dividing exits over "entrances" (unique pageviews as an X-interaction) Exit rate means: exits / (total pageviews + ...

I believe the "Graduation Cap" button is toggled on. Try toggling that off. I was able to replicate your issue by clicking that button, moving to another report view, then returning to the previous view. Analytics Education was still on. Toggling the button to 'off' solved the issue for me.

HTTPS does not improve traffic in any way, shape or form. It's a secure protocol and nothing else. No different, otherwise, from HTTP. If you want Google to combine the results for both http and https, you have to do that in webmaster tools AND, better, redirect your http traffic to https. Then your totals will be added together instead of separately ...

The three metrics are are all different. Bounces: the number people that come to your website, view one page, and leave. Exits: The number of people who exit from the site on that page. This metric counts sessions that start anywhere on the site. Drop offs: A drop off occurs when someone exits the user flow that you are viewing. This does not necessarily ...

HTTPS doesn't send the referrer header. Such traffic will therefore be lumped in with 'direct' traffic.

I've supported HTTPS on my websites for about two years now, but I'm just starting to experiment with the HTTPS versions in search engines. For my sites, I have always had the HTTP version as the canonical (using link rel canonical tags) but allowed users to navigate to either HTTP or HTTPS. On March 18th, I switched that for one of my sites. I made ...

Using a slightly different technique, all of the Referral Spam domains can be listed in one filter. Personally, I'd rather not have a separate filter for each domain, so I'll just add more domains to the one filter as needed. If there's any inherent flaw with this approach, I'd appreciate the feedback! Prior to creating my filter, I set my date range for ...

If you have not already I would suggest that you should compress all your files on server?

In Google Webmaster Tools you can exclude parameters. I would do this so Google will not index those parameters as separate urls. You will see parameters like "utm_source" and "utm_medium". Next add this to your .htaccess: #Removes Campaign Url Parameters RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^((.*?)&|)utm_ RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1?%2 ...

If China blocks the scripts/services then don't waste your time with it trying to make workarounds, just leave it in and move on to something that isnt a waste of time...something that converts.

You could create a china-version of Your theme (if site has one, like Wordpress themes for example). And set this theme only for China users (by IP for example).

There is no need to have two GA codes to enable display advertising features. Use one Universal Analytics tracking tag with the display features enabled. Under the Analytics Admin pane, go to Property Settings. Under Advertising Features, make sure this is set to on. Your tracking code will be updated to reflect this change.

This method fails to break out purchases by store accurately because the checkout process is a separate subdirectory One way to do this is to create a custom segment using sequences.
