How SiteCatalyst attribute participation values to prop variables?

tomo_x

I built new prop variables to know effect of links on internal site.
So if visitor move following case, how many participation number each variables could get?

visitorA: pageA > pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageC(prop1="c1_link2") > pageA > pageD(event1)

visitorB: pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageA > pageD(event1)

I think SiteCatalyst would count like this.

prop1 report:
c1_link1    event1:participation = 2
c1_link2    event1:participation = 1

Because SiteCatalyst regards both variables contribute to event1.
If my recognition is wrong, please let me know.

Participation metrics should only check to see if a value existed in the visit, and if so, simply give it full credit for the event. Duplicate values in the visit do not matter. This means for:

Visit 1: A >  B > C > C > A > D (event1)
Visit 2: B > A > D (event1)

Viewing the pages report with event 1 participation:

A: 2
B: 2
C: 1
😧 2

I've validated this with a several individuals internally here, and will have the documentation on participation metrics updated with this info.

Hi,

 

Yes it is correct and it will count multiple times for the same value if the value was sent more than one time as in the following example : 

visitorA: pageA > pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageC(prop1="c1_link2") >pageC(prop1="c1_link2") > pageA > pageD(event1)

visitorB: pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageA > pageD(event1)

prop1 report:
c1_link1    event1:participation = 2
c1_link2    event1:participation = 2

 

Best regards.

Hi, Alexix

Thanks for your explanation!
Can I ask another question about this?

In your example case,
how participation number in Pagename report would count?

visitorA: pageA > pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageC(prop1="c1_link2") >pageC(prop1="c1_link2") > pageA > pageD(event1)

visitorB: pageB(prop1="c1_link1") > pageA > pageD(event1)

My customer care of representative has said

pagename report will be
pageA event1:participation = 2
pageB event1:participation = 2
pageC event1:participation = 1
pageD event1:participation = 2

Because SiteCatalyst calculate that pageA 2PV and pageC 2PV of visitor A attributes 1CV of event1.
I think prop and pagename pv are same kind of variables.

Hi Tomo,

 

If the pagenames are as follow : 

visitorA:

pageA

pageB

pageC

pageC

pageA 

pageD(event1)

visitorB:

pageB

pageA

pageD(event1)

The you should have in page report for event1 participation : 

 

Page A    3

Page B    2

Page C    2

Page D    2

Total 2

If page name is different for example :

pageC(prop1="c1_link2")

pageC(prop1="c1_link2") 

Then both of them get one as participation event1 as different pagename

 

Best regards.

Hi, Alexis

Thanks for explanation.
However, I couldnt understand why event participation number more than own event cv number.

So, I am setting sample event to understand your explanation.
I am grateful for your explanation with sample data.

Best regards,

Tomo
