Entry Pages Page Views

Avatar

Level 4

Hi,

I was recently running an Entry Pages report with a hit segment for a tracking code. Whilst doing this, I noticed that the Page Views metric in the Entry Pages report was producing the same total as the Page Views metrics in the Tracking Code report with the same segment.

My understanding is that Tracking Codes persist for the whole visit even when using a hit segment - so does this mean that the Page Views metric in the Entry Pages report provides the total pages viewed during the whole visit, not just the number of times the specific entry page was viewed (i.e. when the user enters the site through the entry page and page view is counted, and if they return to that page during the visit another page view is counted). 

Any help that could clear this would be massively appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Toby,

The page views metric in the standard context of the 'Entry Pages Report' is the cumulative page views total of every page for the entire visit attributed back to the original entry page. You can verify this on your end by running a standard 'Pages' report with Page Views metric and comparing the same page line items to the 'Entry Pages Report' with Page Views metric.

If you want to see instances by entry page under your tracking code hit segment you can pull in the Instances or Visits (since every visit has only 1 entry value) metrics.

Best,

Brian
