I'm in the beginning steps of gathering data & insights regarding visitors to a few of our sites. I'll try to explain the situation the best I can for a No0b:
I'm sure that we have visitors that go to all three sites in their purchase journey. Not only would I like to know the number of cross-site visitors to each site, but I'd also like to know a bit more about this journey.
My question: What have you found to be best practice or your preferred way to identify these visitors in the rollup suite; while still being able to report WHICH site they traveled to and from? This seems like a simple request; I think I may be overthinking it or missing a step. Either way, thanks so much for the help and advice!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Andrey (love your videos on YouTube). What might your strategy be if you were in my shoes? We don't currently have Analytics Ultimate, so any option related to Journey IQ or CDA may not be possible. Am I on the right path using the Experience Visitor ID to identify these visitors? I attempted to use Data Warehouse to pull data into PowerBI or Excel and failed, perhaps I'm trying to extract too much data for this purpose. Am I missing something basic? Thanks again Andrey!
This may not be the answer you want, but I use a global suite for my sites, then use Virtual Suites to break down the traffic per site....
However, being on a Global suite, with all sites being "internal" traffic, I set up pathing on the "site name" value to see if users were moving from Site A to Site B (but I also make sure that the site name is part of the pageName so it comes through in the standard pathing report) - this is because Site A won't be a referrer to Site B, or vice versa....
