Any parameter in the URL (including UTMs) could force the search engine to crawl it, so to avoid a lot of duplicate content indexed, we should direct the search engines to the option we prefer as the main one.

You are comparing a daily running tally of users on the site, with the weekly total in Analytics. The problem is, if a visitor comes to the site more than once during that week, you'll be counting them each time in the daily tally, and Analytics will only count them once for the week. As "Users" is literally "individual visitors during this ...

Go to Conversions in Google Ads, you'll see a list of existing conversions (if you have any) and a button to add new ones (either saying, "+New Conversion Action" or just a + symbol, depending on if you're viewing the Summary page or the All Conversions page).

Goals aren't applied retroactively, which is somewhat misleading from the ability of "Verify this goal" function. You would think that if Analytics could spot where a goal completion would have occurred in the past week, then they should be able to add that data to the reports. But they don't.

In your Google Analytics custom report, you are using Users, a calculated GA metric based on a single identifier (Client ID or User ID). How can we ...

After some additional research, I was able to figure this out. When a person clicks a Google job posting to view the job listing on Google, this is considered a click and is labelled as "Job listing" under the Search Appearance tab. If the user is interested in the job and then clicks on the Apply button to be taken to the website, this is ...

Some popular browser extensions block google analytics. For example, ublock origin. So in this case, Google is tracking the clicks from their site via the actual clicking event, but the javascript on the destination page running the google analytics is blocked by the client's browser.

It's more likely there's a problem with Analytics than Search Console being inaccurate. It's possible that you might have a filter in place on that Analytics view which tells it to ignore certain visitors. That would definitely mean that Analytics would show fewer visitors than Search Console shows clicks. There is the possibility that it's the standard ...

Search Console allows you to see individual search queries per landing page, so if you have only a few landing pages, that may be a viable solution. Bring up the performance report in Search Console and select the Pages report. You can thing just click on a page and see all of the data relating to that one landing page. Analytics does not allow you to cross-...
