A client has just upgraded to Universal and now their AdWords visits aren't being registered in GA. There's nothing in the traffic source report or landing pages to show any AdWords visits.

Have they forgotten a setting or done something wrong? Any ideas what's happened?

Thanks in advance.

Turns out the developer spelt the domain name wrong. All sorted now. Thanks for your help.

In GTM using standard GA page code tag I selected the option to enable advertiser features. However, when setting an event in a separate tag do I need to select the option again (and for every other tag)?

I ask as I'm getting an error suggesting that both ga.js and dc.js are being loaded on the page and need help confirming if this is the problem or not.

Thanks

+Martin Garay I am referring to a 'GTM event tag' not a 'GTM event code'.

It was a genius idea for google to use two different meanings for the same word 'event' (I'm kidding btw).

GTM for excel/sheets also use a GTM 'macro' not an normal 'macro'. Maros work like recorded rules in excel, except when they are GTM macros, which just hold cell data. Think thats perfectly clear, no one's likely to mix these up ;) #lol

Hey,
In GTM is there a setting that replicates this line:
_gaq.push(['_addIgnoredRef', 'mydomain.com']);
Or do we need to add the entire page view tracking code as 'Custom'?
Thanks

Good luck Karl. I'm going freelance next month, lots of uncertainties ahead but am looking forward to the challenge. Luckily I don't have 4 daughters to educate!

Hi it appears that my ecommerce code is recording the transaction but not the items that go with it. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

<script type="text/javascript">
                var _gaq = _gaq || [];
                _gaq.push(
                    ['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXX-XX'],
                    ['_trackPageview'],
                    ['_setDomainName', '.example.com'],
                    ['_trackPageLoadTime']
                );
               
_gaq.push(['_addTrans',
'abc123',           // transaction ID - required
'', // affiliation or store name
'127.5',           // total - required
'',           // tax
'',             // shipping
'',       // city
'',     // state or province
''             // country
]);

_gaq.push(['_addItem',
'abc123',         // transaction ID - necessary to associate item with transaction
'Product name',         // SKU/code - required
'',      // product name - necessary to associate revenue with product
'', // category or variation
'127.5',        // unit price - required
'1'             // quantity - required
]);

_gaq.push(['_set', 'currencyCode', 'EUR']); // This is needed to tell Analytics the currency being used – usually USD, EUR or GBP.

_gaq.push(['_trackTrans']); //submits transaction to the Analytics servers

(function () {
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; 

ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://' : 'http://') + 
'stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore

(ga, s);
})();
</script>



Thanks

Thanks Dan, it appears that it was because 'product name' was missing. I find this strange given that official documentation doesn't state it as a required argument. Thanks to +Peter O'Neill too.

Have been a loyal customer for years, then moved to Hove. I phoned up one day only to be told that I was wasting their time with an order of that size, despite it being the same as always and the fact that I was willing to pay the extra for mileage! They then hung up on me! Unforgivable!!
