Google Analytics allows you to set the default date range to the the last 7, 14, 28, or 30 days. You can access this setting from the User Settings which is found in the "Overflow Menu" (vertical three dots): In addition, some people have noticed that if you bookmark a specific set of dates, those dates end up in the URL. Unfortunately, if you create a ...

First, you need to have something in the Privacy Policy/Terms of Service about what you intend to do. If you intend to file a report with the NCMEC. What information you intend to disclose with/without search warrant, etc. I would recommend that should a User upload a child porn image, immediately make it inaccessible to the general public. You should then ...

No to tabs, but you could use a combination of multiple dashboards and shortcuts. Shortcuts will let you save certain views of reports (such as secondary filtering data) allowing you to access reports that would typically be nested a few clicks deep. You could for example filter on a specific keyword by referral path. Shortcuts could also be used on any ...

Google analytics does not support changing the default date range or saving a month over month comparison. This question gets asked quite a bit, and I wish they would support it. The only solution to this appears to be to bookmark a month over month comparison view that has static dates in it, and then create a bookmarklet that will calculate the current ...

There's no other way than using a bookmarklet (or browser plugin/extension). I tried the bookmarklet examples above, but none seemed to work for me. The solution in the first link should work exactly like mine, but for some reason it doesn't. The other 2 links are outdated as Google Analytics URL structure has changed. The "easiest" way I found to make a ...

Google Analytics has its own way to calculate metrics that can differ from other platforms. At this point, is important to understand how they calculate exit percentage: For all pageviews to the page, Exit Rate is the percentage that was the last in the session. I assume in your checkout process the URL is always the same, is that right? In that case, in ...

Google has a method to track across multiple domains and sub-domains Tracking Across Multiple Domains and Sub-domains https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/gaTrackingSite In this scenario, you might want to track two unique domains and one sub-domain. For example, suppose you have an online store and you also want to track ...

No I don't believe Google Analytics will tell you how many hits a page on your site is generating. Graphics, CSS, JS filese all count as hits to older Analytics programs. But that's a term and number which doesn't mean much. If you have 1000 images on a page what does it matter if you have 1000 hits? Your visitors are who matter not how many files your ...

This is an easy implementation if you have the option to create a Custom Variable (i.e. you are not already using all available custom variable slots) - example: var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']); /** * track sessions for visitors who leave the /free-tools/ path */ if ( window.location.pathname.indexOf('free-...

Well I have a few ideas here. First of all, the most accurate will always be something like Analytics that uses actual server logs to generate statistics. That said here is my opinion: The Keyword Estimator: This will be the least accurate, it is more of a guess than anything and doesn't pertain to your site in particular. It simply guesses based on the ...

My experience with data warehousing for site analytics is that it is very expensive. You are either going to spend a lot of money using a pre-packaged solution, or you are going to spend money (in the form of time or hiring) building one yourself. If you are just starting out, forego the expense of custom analytics. Use free off the shelf products. ...

For both Google and Bing, you can be logged into an account on their sites when conducting searches. In that case, your search is conducted in a "secured context" for privacy reasons, under which your query terms are not available for reports. To separate the two, Google Analytics uses a capitalization for the site name versus lower case for the search ...

This is possible but you would need to use the Google Analytics API to pull in the information from the individual accounts and merge it yourself before generating the report off of it. The standard web interface only allows you to drill into one property at a time. If you are not comfortable programming something to call the API there are a number of Excel ...

You can do that with a Custom Report. Just create a flat table report with dimensions and metrics like so:

Closetnoc's comment answers my question: This should resolve on it's own. There is nothing you can do but wait. In my case, I did not have to wait too long. It just may be that some data is missing and a report could not be generated as a result. It could be a simple lag time in updating the database.

The answer is quite easy when you look closer to the screenshot or your Google Analytics account. The missing sessions enter the funnel in later steps - like you can see in the screenshot. If you hover over the small bar at "Sessions with Add to Cart", you'll see a number close to 267,000. In your shop this can occur when your visitor fulfils one or two ...

Each custom report is based on the same data - the tabs are meant to merely display the data in a different way. To use different data, you need to create a new report. You will not be able to do it in a new tab. Edit: This link lists how different dimensions and metrics work together and exclude each other, which is helpful in making your reports work.

A user is identified by a long term cookie. A user is typically a person on a particular device. The same person would not become a new new user unless they switched devices (tablet to phone to computer, etc), switched browsers, entered private browsing, or cleared their cookies. Two people would usually not be identified as the same user unless they ...

In Google Analytics pick Acquisition from the Sidebar Menu, then All Traffic, then Referrals. To get the specific page that had the link, add a secondary dimension of Referral Path

Go into Admin > Property Settings, scroll down to the bottom and look at User Analysis Enable Users Metric in Reporting Decide if you want this on or off, then go through all your sites and apply the same setting to them.

So apparently they mean links to search console itself, so like if you have a link on a blog post to search console or if you have an app that links to search console for some reason, that's what they're talking about. I was confused too. They wrote it really cryptically, as though I needed to update some link I didn't know about on my own website that ...

Your filter translates to this statement: All pages, that do not match RegEx A OR do not match RegEX B OR do not match RegEx C This essentially returns all or most of your pages, as one of the sub-conditions are likely to evaluate to TRUE, resulting the whole filter to be passed by pages. So for you regex to work, you need to tell Analytics to match all ...

This is possible if your Google Ads URL's are tagged with UTM parameters. (Parameters can be either manually added or auto-tagged.) You also have to make sure you're using the "utm_term" parameter. If the above is true for your campaigns, inside whichever Property you can go to your non-raw data View(s) > click on "Filters" > add a new Custom Filter > ...

You can't change the homepage in Google Adsense. You are stuck with whatever they show you. Google has changed the AdSense home page several times in the last few years. It used to show the number you are looking for, but it no longer does. During the process for the home page redesign, they solicited feedback from AdSense users. I was one of the ...

If you would like to exclude multiple cities you must use "does not match regex" and then use your locations in the regular expression. For example if you want to exclude the city of Boardman Oregon, Ashburn Oregon, and (not set) it would look like this location city does not match regex Boardman|Ashburn|(not set) I just noticed that no one knows you can ...

Late answer, but maybe useful for someone else. You can permanently remove it by creating a filter. Go to your account admin page / All filter. Create a new filter with following parameters: Filter type: Custom / Exclude Filter field: Select Country, Region, City or whatever you find suitable. List is quite long and includes fields like IP address, ISP ...

You need to have only pageviews per each category. Do it in spreadsheet. 1) download a report with pageviews for /animals/ category 2) import data to spreadsheet 3) import URLs for cats and dogs in separate columns in the same spreadsheet 4) using a VLOOKUP function identify is "dog URL" is contained in all pages columns (/animal/ category column), if it ...
