Question of the week (June 23rd, 2015): are you willing to pledge for the +Digital Analytics Association code of ethics?

Wishful thinking? Useful or not? Anything missing? Any good stories to share? Go ahead, chime in!

PRIVACY – I agree to hold consumer data in the highest regard and will do everything in my power to keep personally identifiable consumer data safe, secure and private.
TRANSPARENCY – I agree to encourage full disclosure of my clients/employer consumer data collection practices and to encourage communication of how that data will be used in clear and understandable language.
CONSUMER CONTROL – I agree to inform and empower consumers to opt out of my clients/employer data collection practices and to document ways to do this.
EDUCATION – I agree to educate my clients/employer about the types of data collected, and the potential risks to consumers associated with those data.
ACCOUNTABILITY – I agree to act as a steward of customer data and to uphold the consumers’ right to privacy as governed by my clients/employer and applicable laws and regulations.

Got an interesting comment privately: maybe some people are voting "No" because they don't care about the DAA... but beyond that, I'm really curious to know/understand why someone wouldn't be willing to follow the simple statements put forth.

I also often relate to the Canadian PIPEDA guiding principles which applies to PII info only, but are really good when talking about those concepts with clients., See https://www.priv.gc.ca/leg_c/p_principle_e.asp

Any other interesting sources of info that relates to ethics in our field?

I'm not sure if this was shared last year when it was published, but I thought I would share this free Google Analytics Universal Guide from e-nor.

Creating a better experience for our end users and generating greater value for our organizations. But there are many aspects of implementation and configuration that we need to get right, and many hidden reporting gems …

Dear members, 

I have implemented Google custom search within a site. First search box is working for whole site, whereas another search box is working for only blog section. 

Is there any way that I can see GA tracking report for both search boxes separately?

Please let me know if it is possible. 

Thanks

Is is possible for me to use an exclude filter for just one page?
Our website is built with .NET, and "example.com/search" in our case is considered a page instead of a subdirectory if I understand it correctly. So when I tried EXCLUDE>TRAFFIC TO THE SUBDIRECTORY>THAT ARE EQUAL TO>/search, it doesn't work of course. Any ideas? Thanks!

I am trying to consolidate numerous Analytics accounts under one email. I have given full user permissions to the email address I want the accounts changed to and it appears everything has transferred over. Can I now delete the old account?

Yes, sure - the only reason to keep it would be in case there's something you forgot to transition over, like custom reports, custom dashboards, custom segments. You can also gradually remove access from each view once you are sure everything is fine (or go ahead and remove access to the whole account)

Another week, another question. I'm trying to figure out the best markets (countries) to target with paid ad campaigns. Basically I dont want to spend money on countries that are already converting with organic traffic. So finding out the high volume & tough organic competition markets. Any ideas or suggestions for a report?

+Stéphane Hamel Agree! He could then filter (as per the newly identified country) the new search analysis report within Webmaster Tools to see which keywords triggered his website from that country. Could also help with identifying keywords for his PPC campaign.

Are there any threads here commenting how the #GA  App has been abandoned? Enhanced Ecom is not there, terminology is still not updated... It's a shame.

Not sure it's a Premium issue.
Continuing in devil's advocate mode: do you really need to see Enhanced Ecom on a mobile app?

Hi everyone, I tried looking online to figure out how to show my top traffic days on my blog (not day of the week, like top 10 individual days ever)
I couldn't find any help. Is there a custom report or something I can do to see what my top 10 days ever are?
