Occurrences and Page Views in Adobe Analytics

Hi,

Could anyone please help me understand in which case or scenario, Occurrences and Page Views are exactly equal?

Is it because of some configuration set by us. What wrong am I doing here.

hi. you're not doing wrong anything, it's a question of the metric/dimension you are looking at.

technically "page" is a prop which ONLY can be set on a pageview!  that means, if you are looking at "how many times a page appears in database" (occurencies) it is the same as "how many page views has a certain page" (pageviews).

if you want to count "page views" AND "custom actions" (download/exit/...) for a certain page take an eVar (with at least pageView expiration) for the pagename instead.

Thanks Ursboller. IT is helpful.

Just one query, when we pass s.pagename in any "custom action", does it count pageview?

pageview is triggered if it is not a s.tl call (no custom/exit/download link)

and if you send pagename, it will be deleted during processing on s.tl calls

Thanks Ursboller. That is really informative.
