This website it's a marketplace. I think the time for a session is too short. Even I'm not an expert, but this my opinion. I tried to measure time for the viewing of a page and for some click, as a test, and the time was 20 seconds. So what do you think? The website is www.abruzzostore.com
For the second image, you can see the behaviour flow reports. Any opinion about this?

Hi guys, quick question to you.

I am thinking about implement adjusted bounce rate (ABR) on my website but i don't know whether creating a new view or just keep everything as it is.. I have a few doubts because I don't know if the ABR overwrites the future bounce rate data or i will be able to see both.

I hope it's clear. Many thanks for your help as usual.

User Explorer - Identify Users

How close does the new User Explorer report come to identifying users? The report provides you with the client ID, which with not much effort, someone can identify that user i.e. based on goal completions, such as a form where personal information was given and then recorded in the CRM.

I know that PII information may not be used in GA, but where does Google draw the line in triangulating the user in this case? Does the responsibility of GA stop when it records data, then the responsibility gets handed over to the company for matching that data to the CRM?

Just a question I was pondering. Any feedback will be great.

Thank you

There is no problem with hashed identifiers, or in this case cookie ids. PII is what Google could be using to identify someone as a person or device:

From https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2795983?hl=en:

"sending personally identifiable information (PII) to Analytics (such as names, social security numbers, email addresses, or any similar data)"

Pardon the longer than average post. I'm seeking suggestions and advice on some site speed analysis and wanted to detail what I have done and challenges.

Regarding site speed metrics, there is a really interesting drill down if you follow this path:

Behavior > Site Speed > Page Timings > Distribution

You can then select different timing metrics such as load time, server response time etc. The dimension in this view is a distribution bucket: 0-1, 1-3, 3-7 seconds etc.

Recently there's been a lot of discussion around site speed where I work. Some analysis/GA drill downs of site speed metrics asked for were by device category and user type (new Vs. returning). I was also asked if I could estimate if there was a relationship between site speed and conversions.

Since these user buckets are not a conventional dimension (not available via API or in custom reporting) I had to use segments while in the speed distribution buckets drill down. This was tedious but seems doable: I created a segment for e.g. device category = tablet and goal completions > 0.

I repeated segments along these lines for each device type and user type, then for each of those converting Vs. non converting sessions.
The outcome of the analysis has stirred a discussion. Marketing are exploring whether to start a case to allocate resources to speeding up the site.

I'm cautious due to the level of sampling involved. In addition to regular GA sampling, speed metrics have an additional layer of sampling on top.

When I initially started the analysis I tried a few different methods, including pulling device category and user type into a custom report, with metrics for load time, speed sample, and number of pageviews. I intended to calculate the average site speed time manually based on this. But the results I got back looked nonsensical.

My question is, what would be a good approach for site speed analysis by user type and device? Want to understand not just speed but also any impact on conversion rate. Would you use the segments approach with the already built GA distribution buckets like I did? Or would you try to build a custom report and calculate the metrics yourself?

Seeking suggestions.

Yesterday I was reviewing a client data and for events, I found a "ghost" row with a null category/action/label, that was showing 0 total events, and XXXX total unique events. Check the attached screenshot.

Even when you filter your events list by ^$, the row it's there, but the column total sum shows 0, when the row has a value.

If you try to cross that event with any dimension (hostname, browser, ...), it disapears.

If you check the data day by day, either you won't hit this info, or the sum of values by day won't match the total of the same selected period.

It seems to be related to pre-calculated reports, since if you add a yes OR yes segment, this row dissapears. (for example user type = .* ).

This morning I'm founding this in 5 more clients (including premium accounts).

Anyone else noticed this?, is it some processing bug at GA side?

Urchin Tracking Module in short UTM was developed by Urchin Software Corporation. In 2005 Google acquired Urchin Software Corporation and the software which they had developed, was the foundation step for what we have right now as Google Analytics.

slightly GA related. Social analytics. Does anyone know any tools that complement what insights you get from GA?

Hi Dominic,

I will recommend Crimson Hexagon. It has richer insights related to social analytics. Having said that I will not claim that it can literarly supplement GA... It is just different, but good

Firebase Analytics - Unity

I don't know if this is the right group for this, but have anyone found a way to get around implementing Firebase for Unity?

As Unity does not support native SDKs, so we can't use those. Firebase Analytics also does not support a REST API.

Question - could pushing it through GTM be a possible solution to this?

Any help will be great.

Thank you!

Has anyone used AVANSER call tracking integration with GA Events? or any similar system for that matter (Invoca?)

My assumption is - they send Event hit to GA using Measurement Protocol when someone calls (correct me if I’m wrong!)
- Are these Events attributed to same GA User (Client ID or User ID)
- and, to same session in which a dynamic number was shown to the site visitor
and if they do, how they achieve that (their tags cant read clientID or Session ID!)

basically I’m bit skeptic, each such Event create a new user / session in GA reports!

Thanks for any clarification on that!

Just more an observation and hopefully a future development.

In GTM I have successfully tracked engagement of our social buttons with the social tag.

In GA I wanted to split some data (via segmentation) by those with a social action and those without. Problem is social action isn't on the list to pick from.

Quick solution is to also record social button engagement with an event tag, and thus segment on event category/ action/ label.

Yeah, I only use Events. I haven't found much use for the Social Plugin reports, since Events do exactly the same thing in terms of queries and segments..

How to calculate the breakeven?

If we have budget for advertisement of $15,000. The expected total clicks from the campaign is 100,000 with conversion rate of 1%. Each click will bring in $25 profit. How much should  we pay for each click to break even this campaign?  Thank you for help

Woho, simple math, sounds like a questions in a job interview:

Short: maximum of 0.25$ per click

Long:
As you'll need 100 clicks to make one conversion, and can make 25$ with each conversion, you should not pay more than 25$/100 = 0.25$ per click. As soon as you pay less, you make money, as soon as you pay more, you loose money and if you pay 0.25$ you don't loose or win anything.

Haha, I guess I should have thought about that considering only 30% of my website traffic is from the US.

I'm most excited to use this on top of Google Sheets or an alternative to it when I don't need to use any special formulas.
