Seems a bit of a simple question but I can't find an answer - can you schedule an email that will send a YTD dashboard?

I've found this note in the dev doc re. ampersand syntax:

"In general, ampersand syntax is not recommended and should only be used when the analytics.js field name for a Measurement Protocol parameter does not exist (this occasionally happens if a new feature is added to the Measurement Protocol before it is implemented in analytics.js)."

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/accessing-trackers#ampersand_syntax

Just curious. Does anyone know why it's discouraged? My impression was that it was perfectly valid.

Thanks in advance!

I wonder why I can not see any activity in realtime reports, when browsing with a android phone's mobile chrome (both Motorola Moto x 2014 and Moto g4).

When I switch phone's chrome to desktop mode, it will appear in realtime reports, but nothing in mobile mode.

But when I'm using Samsung Galaxy Tab S and its Chrome, it will appear in realtime reports both in mobile and desktop mode.

Implemented GATC with GTM and DuracellTomi's Google Tag Manager for WordPress.

hmm.. is the its aren't showing in standard reports either that means some issue with the client-end not in your GA / GTM settings

Perhaps GoogleAnalyticsObject (or even GTM) isn't properly instantiating on some mobile device / browser combinations! Check in dve. console, whar’s GoogleAnalyticsObject object name (usually its “ga” or “__gaqtracker”) and if it’s instantiated properly? share site URL pls.?

also try contact +Google Tag Manager for WordPress , if they've any official explanation to this ?

I use cloudflare.com so why are Cloudflare visitor numbers double Google Analytics visitors. Which figure is right? Does Analytics not count everyone?

So it seems I have 26k visitors tracked by GA, and 50k visitors of unknown origin tracked by Cloudflare.

How does Google Analytics actually get your data? In this post, we explore the Google Analytics tracking code, the information it gathers, and how the data is requested and collected via the Measurement Protocol.

Hi
I have excluded our internal IP filters, but as we take phone & email orders and use our online ordering form to submit them, how can I track those orders as coming from us internally?

Either just those website visits or attribute all website visits to ourselves as a source?

+Alex Koremenos thanks, i do have a separate view for internal, but I guess I should have asked if it's possible to attribute an office visit as the company name as a source or medium or something within one view.

Hi fellow partners! With the ever expanding mobile sphere and now that we have the attention span of a goldfish and spend far too long on our mobiles, how dose the recent changes in mobile technology from the giants of Google, Facebook and Apple all mean?

Thanks Vincent, do you have a view of this road map? Just trying to figure out if we should start making moves to be "AMP ready"

Properly segment your a/b test users with advanced segments (and sequences) - Just blogged my best practice for this.

Are you using the same segmentation for your analysis?

The first question people started to ask when Firebase was announced is "what? how is this different from GA for mobile?" (and then... "sh*t... I will have to redo tagging again!")
 
For your Mobile App Analytics choose between Firebase vs @googleanalytics 360 https://goo.gl/1m3dxT #measure
Life was rather simple when marketers had to deal with only one device (desktop) and a few marketing channels. Nowadays, the plethora of devices, channels and analytics technologies makes one’s mind spin, and as soon as you think you have it all figured out, a new platform or a new technology pops up.

When using the Search Term Exclusions is it a filter that "contains" a particular search.

If I added the domain name for a site would that exclude all searches that contain that domain name.

For Example, if I entered www.domain.co.uk as an exclusion would it then also exclude www.domain.co.uk/about if searched.

Hi, has anyone experienced inaccurate data problems in the enhanced ecommerce reports?

The problem I'm having is when I view an individual 'Product List' in the 'Product List Performance' report. If I toggle the primary dimension between 'Product' and 'Product SKU' then the metrics report different figures. I'd expect to get the same data regardless of whether the primary dimension is 'Product' or 'Product SKU'.

The research I've done suggests that there must be occurrences where we're sending inconsistent data to GA (e.g. some hits with Product SKU and some without). When testing with tag assistant plugin it seems like the data we're sending to the data layer is correct.

Can anyone suggest any scenarios or factors that could have an influence on the data that GA actually receives?

Thanks,

Will

Average Time On Page ...

I want to know if people are reading a blog post. Avg time on page, if reliable, would be a good indicator. Unfortunately, I'm questioning the reliability of what I'm seeing in analytics.

Example...

The top post (by pageviews) has Avg Time on Page as 3:50. However, the bounce rate and exit rate are at 90% (most pageviews are entrances).

If 90% of the visitors are bouncing, why isn't the Time on Page closer to zero?

We created a SaaS service to analyse the correlation between two GA metrics. For us this saves hours of work each week.

The calculation is done by analysing the linear regression of two metrics within any Google Analytics Accounts/Profiles/Segments. Yes, you can compare the data between any account you have rights to. See image for an example. The analysis is super useful, but we would like to receive more use cases from GA community. We are not selling this so during the test users will get the service for free as long as you kindly provide us some kind of feedback to improve the solution.

If you are interested in trying the tool please comment and I'll contact you directly. I'm not going to post a URL here, because I guess that would not be appropriate unless the moderator allows that.

GA Apps - Unity Demographics

We can't seem to find the dev docs for enabling demographic data collection for Unity build. We have however seen that in the Unity GA asset that there is a simple Send IDFA/AdID tick box. Would simply ticking that box do the trick?

If not, would anyone know of whether we need to include some piece of code? Similar to the code needed for the Android / iOS SDK kits.

Thank you
