Still not as good as Google Analytics... is it?
The New Facebook Analytics for Apps tool does a lot more than track app advertising data.

Okay, so there are lots of blogs etc exploring traffic from social media and that some of the traffic is attributed to Direct Traffic.

I can't seem to find anything to talks about Facebook Ads and Twitter Ads tracking in GA when a user comes from a Mobile App.

I am still getting discrepancies even though the URL's are tagged correctly with the URL Builder.

Does anyone know of a solution for better tracing of In App clicks to Websites?

Cheers

Richard

Hi All,
Guys, I’m working on the b2b website where main goal is quite simple and straight forward lead generation.
We now want to understand user behaviour across devices before they converted, so I’m looking for some onsite incentives to sign in. Here is what i have in my list so far:
- Log in to save items available on website for later and be able to access them from the devices;
- Log in to use online chat;
- Log in after conversion, for example we suggest to connect Linkedin profile after thank you page;
- Log in to see full version of relevant content (this one is the most complicated as the content need to be added);
- Prize draw for users.

I’m looking for some more ideas or feedback on the ones above. Also i’d appreciate any useful links relevant to this topic.

Thanks,
Alex

Ah yes, I was thinking along the lines of 'log in to search a repository of resources/white papers' rather than site search. I agree that logging in to use the general site search could be frustrating!

Feature request: Adding comments on a user account. Their Google account isn't always descriptive enough to determine who owns that account, it's tricky to audit users without knowing/remembering their context.

Track Facebook sponsored posts in GA?
--------------
How do you track in GA the traffic generated by Facebook sponsored posts ?

Do you have any tip to differentiate the post's destination url depending on the way it was reached by the FB user (organic vs. sponsored)?
If not, would it be relevant to make 2 distinct posts (hiding the version which is only accessible from sponsored post mechanism...)

Thanks in advance for sharing your views on this :-)

Does anybody have any good advice for switching to Google Tag Manager? I currently have Classic Analytics on one of my sites, and will be using a GTM container moving forward. Do I still need to get a Universal Analytics property or can I skip that step since I will just be using the GTM code?

Firstly, you can check if your property is Universal Analytics by going to your Admin section, under the Property Settings column. If you see Tracking Code under, then you are still using Classic GA. If it says Tracking Info, your property is Universal Analytics even though you still have the classic code. I believe Google has already transferred the majority of properties to UA. Also, GTM does not require UA. You can migrate your current classic implementation to gtm without any problems. Just make sure you do it simultaneously i.e. take the current code out at the same time as you publish your gtm container.

Looking for a plugin to simplify report interface before taking a screenshot
--------------
Hi,
When making GA analysis into PPT, I always paste screenshots of reports but there are a lot of useless UI elements (top header, advanced segments when no segment is applied, sometimes graph if I want to focus on the table...)

For example, I'd like to show only report title, date range and table on screen so I can just copy-past a screenshot into PPT...

Do you know any tool (Chrome extension, greasemonkey script?) which you let me display/hide elements of a GA report easily (without having to put display:none in CSS from the developer console...).

I don't want to manually edit the page's code everytime I need to make a screenshot, but rather have a simple list of "GA report display modes" to select from a browser plugin.

I just made an interesting proof of concept with a Chrome extensoin called Stylish (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylish/fjnbnpbmkenffdnngjfgmeleoegfcffe/related?hl=en ) which lets me easily enable/disable a custom set of css rules

I'll try to finalize this and share it with the community, unless someone already has a ready-made solution...

I think it's time for Google to ban the bots.

Start domain matching bots that are hammering large swaths of Analytics profiles, and start outright banning them from the service and removing them from all traffic stats.

What they're doing constitutes abuse of the system and is hurting use of the Analytics product for customers who haven't implemented one of the filtering methods.

If all Analytics profiles removed all traffic from semault, buttons for website, and other spam junk, it'd very quickly kill this tactic for them.

Hej,
I currently write a Master Thesis in Sweden about consumer analytics. Maybe google is interested in participating in this study in the form of an interview. From my point of view the project has a good connection to the google universial analytics product.
With the research I want to find out which metrics are the best to measure consumer performance and how that can be done by using modern BI technology.
If you are interested please drop me a message.
Best,
Björn

Some (free) advice:
1) complete your profile so we know who you are, maybe add a link to your LinekdIn profile too
2) maybe some people would be willing to contribute to your study, but you will definitely have to provide more info

Just wondering what the hell #GA team is doing to stop referral spam. Is that so complicate adding an API key to grant an HTTP request call?

A simply "Report as Spam" feature like the one in Gmail could solve this.

You are right. I just tested the share function, and saw the "promote" one, but now i also have two Grouping which are called "Default Channel Grouping". Not very nice, Google!

You may track this particular page as a landing page (objectives conversions) and look at the click sources. Good luck
