You can use Google Analytics for WordPress plugin by Yoast and custom variables. Yoast plugin has an option which adds the categories of a post in custom variables. You just have to create a new segment including only those custom variables and it will work.

Makes sense?

Following on from last week's tutorial about Bounce Rates, this week we look at the difference between Visits and Pageviews, and how understanding them can help gain deeper insight into user behaviour.

Continuing on from last week’s post about Bounce Rates, I thought this week I would look at clarifying the difference...

There are 20 goals max per View. Are there limit to other parts of Google Analytics? If so, I'll horde my resources more carefully. :)
* Properties
* Views
* Dashbaords
* Custom Segments
* Custom Reports

I had found that you can have a max of 25 analytics accounts but I am not sure if it is still true. Also there is a max of 50 properties per analytics account

Google Analytics is an amazing tool, but it isn't the only thing you'll need.
If you want your online business and campaigns to succeed, Google Analytics will not meet all of your measurement needs. That may seem like crazy thinking because GA has a huge array of capabilities. However, there are many areas where we have better tools for understanding visitor behavior such as interaction, user sentiment and impact […]

Google #Analytics is a free tool that provides statistics for your blog or website. This article contains tools/snippts for extending Google Analytics functionality.

By default google analytics is pretty good on it’s own. But sometimes you need a nuanced approach to understand what visitors are doing on your website. The plugins listed below help you get more by extending google analytics.

Tracking code and fillers are simple but costly mistakes when analytics are crucial to your website and business success. Finally, Analytics helps you keep an eye out.

If you want to #migrate your classic +Google Analytics to Universal with several clicks, use this method (GTM required):
1. Add custom HTML tag (rule: URL matches .*)
<script>
    _gaq.push = [];
    _gaq.push = function() {
        if (arguments[0][0] == '_trackEvent') {
            dataLayer.push({
                'event': 'gaq_push',
                    'gaq_eventCategory': arguments[0][1],
                    'gaq_eventAction': arguments[0][2],
                    'gaq_eventLabel': arguments[0][3],
                    'gaq_eventValue': arguments[0][4],
                    'gaq_eventOptNoninteraction': arguments[0][5]
            });
        }
    }
</script>
2. And set an event Tag for Universal, based on these dataLayer macroses.

All your events from classic Analytics source code will be sent to your Universal property using #GTM.

This sounds like a lot of work instead of just deploying Universal Analytics via GTM

Still using the classic +Google Analytics and wondering if you should upgrade to Universal Analytics?

Yes you should. Here's why: http://bit.ly/1t6s6bi

Also useful when you've already upgrading, but are still wondering what's new in Universal Analytics.

Hey guys...
This is a long shot but I'm currently searching for a regular Co-Host for my Web Analytics show the Quantified Web Podcast. Anyone feeling up to the task to discuss with me some cool topics surrounding Analytics (Data and the Web) on a weekly basis? Wirte me a message.

Cheers,

Julian

Can Google Analytics provide data on  Google Plus communities?

Stephane Hamel's profile photo
 
No, sadly, it can't. If you have a G+ Page you can get some stats, but nothing for communities yet. I use CircleCount to get some stats but that's still not ideal.

I'm experiencing an issue with event tracking in Google #Analytics and wondered if anyone knows why the following is happening.

We have GA setup and reporting on an application form (IIS) via #TagManager .

All the way through the form I can view the process via realtime reporting in GA and the #referral source displays correctly ie the site that referred the user to the form.

On the last page of the form the referral source is still correct but the event that is triggered on that page shows the referral source as #direct ??

Any idea why this is happening??

Does the user go offsite just before the last page, such as to a third party payment provider, and then return to complete your funnel?

Google removed keywords because they want to allow people there privacy right?  If your coming from an HTTPS it wont record the keywords in there search.      To prevent us from tracking what people on secure connections are doing.  

If that is true then why do they let us do stuff like www.mysite353535.com?utm_campaign=socialflow_facebook&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=socialflow   Isn't this also a way of tracking people and an invasion of there privacy?   I know they clicked that link.  

I was just wondering, because I have recently started to notice all the campaign tracking codes in sites i visit.  TBH its annoying and I'm not sure I like it.  If the public really knew what those codes where would they like it?

The distinction between search terms and campaign parameters is subtle but important. Campaign parameters - nor search terms - automatically identify an individual person or send any PII of their own. However, the root of the issue is because someone had the clever idea of searching for their own name (go figure who in his/her right mind would do that!) and found sites that provided PII info. Details are available here: http://searchengineland.com/google-agrees-to-settle-lawsuit-over-passing-search-queries-to-third-parties-167574 (and many more)

Help Me Understand Attribution in Universal Analytics....

The diagram shows how I think it works, but... am I right? If a user comes from an email campaign or other attributable source to their web browser, where they will get a client-side ga cookie ID; if they eventually register and gets a defined-by-my-server CID value, then uses their registered product/service on ANOTHER browser or app, will GA still be able to make an attribution connection between the actions on that second client all the way back to the original source? Does GA tie the CID and original browser-cookie ID together by itself?

Google Analytics Weighted Sort

I've been trying to use Weighted Sort on a number of different reports using Bounce Rate, Conversion Rate and other appropriate metrics, but the option to do Weighted Sort is always grayed out (unavailable).  Has anyone experienced this? I know you can't view this with advanced segments, but I didn't have any active.

Is there a data sample size threshold that has to be met in order to enable Weighted Sort perhaps?

If you're not using Google Analytics to its full potential to manage your online business, you might be missing out on a whole world of data potential.

An e-commerce site is an excellent way of generating revenue with minimum physical effort--but that doesn’t mean it can thrive on its own. Tools like Google Analytics are key for your e-commerce site's survival. Access to data and the ability to analyze it are the foundation on which successful online stores are built.

Study of web analytics reports from Google Analytics can help you get useful insights into important factors like campaigns that are actually working, pages that are getting lots of attention, and products that get little response from customers.

However, in order to get all kinds of extensive metrics regarding your store, you will need to customize certain core areas of Google Analytics. Doing so will help you boost your sales, and it will also aid in increasing your site's overall value for customers.

Get ready to make the most of your e-commerce site with these five crucial customizations in Google Analytics...

[SOLVED] How do you set custom dimensions and metrics for ecommerce  transaction?
I tried
ga('ecommerce:send', {"dimension5": "ABC"})
but no success.
Note: I only want to set dimension on transaction, not for other hit types.

because it would mean reworking the entire interface for the ecommerce tag just to assign custom dims and mets to items
if you want to assign custom dims and mets to items you may need to use custom HTML to go through the items SKUs via the data layer.
