I am trying to report website activity by different pages on the site. I wanted to know which variable should be used - Page Name (v1 - evar1) or Entry Page or some other variable?
Also, what is the difference between these two? I think Entry page is the first page on which the user landed. So does that mean that any download or video play on a subsequent page will be attributed to Entry page, when using this variable? Let me know.
Pagename: The pageName variable should be populated with a value that business users recognize. In most cases the pageName value is not the URL or the path to the file. Common pageName values include names such as "Home Page," "Checkout," "Purchase Thank you," or "Registration." More info on pagename is at: pageName
Entries: Entries represents the number of times a given value is captured as the first value in a visit. Entries can occur only once per visit. However, it is not necessarily the first hit if the variable is not defined. Entry pages have a visit breakdown scope, meaning they persist across all hits for a visit.
Please go through the below link to understand the behavior of the entry pages:
