I have a client who wants to route page views into separate GA Properties based off a returnUrl UTM. I am trying to configure this in one tag using one GTM container. I know that using cookies for Analytics is changing rapidly and I am having trouble getting everything set up.

Here's how I have it configured currently:

returnUrl Trigger: enter image description here

That trigger fires a Page View tag configured like so: enter image description here

GTM Preview Fires Everything Correctly, and the Tracking Values are correct: enter image description here

I have added the original domain to Referral Exclusion Lists on each GA Property for the returnUrl domains. But I am not getting page views.

Google Tag Assistant is giving an error of "No HTTP response detected" for the Analytics UA-ID (which is correct).

I've seen a lot of different blog posts and tried implementing a few. But I'd like to solve this as quickly and smoothly as possible. I appreciate the help!

Blog posts used:

https://www.simoahava.com/analytics/troubleshooting-cross-domain-tracking-in-google-analytics/

https://www.directom.com/cross-domain-tracking-google-tag-manager/

This post I have looked at but it looks like a lot more Tags / Triggers are involved. Before I bite this off I want to see if there's a way to save this configuration.

Thanks for looking!

  • GA shouldn't care whether a pageview is a referral or not, simply to record it. Have you checked for filters on the views of each property? – Reve Dec 1 '20 at 15:04
  • For cross domain tracking a single GA property should be used across all the domains. Reason i mention this is in your post you mention the following - I have added the original domain to Referral Exclusion Lists on each GA Property for the returnUrl domains. But I am not getting page views. – Bronwyn V Dec 3 '20 at 9:36
