On my e-commerce site I have 4 levels of categories for products (i.e. Men/T-shirt/Hawaii Style/Modern, Women/Dress/Summer, Misc). Each category/sub(*)category has designated URL.
In my reports I need to be able to see, how each category/subcategory is performing in terms of pageviews/sessions.
It is important to mention, that some sub-categories may have same names (i.e. "T-Shirt" subcategory may be under "Men" and "Women" categories). I need to track them separately as well as be able to see a roll-up.
I have a solution, but wanted to hear opinion of GA professionals if that makes sense and whether it is valid way to do it.
So I created 4 Custom Groupings:
I am setting each of "Category Level N" Content Groupings via my tracking code. Basically, on each page I set all 4 content groupings (if available).
Since I need to have a report for distinct category paths, not just for one, I want to use custom report (Flat table) with these 4 content groupings added as dimensions. This should give me all combinations.
Does it make sense? Is ther any other way to do it?
