SOLVED

Segment with tracking code conditions

Hi, I've read several posts with the same problem as I had, but still quite don't understand.

I wanted to know how many entries were made that did not have tracking codes(and consider them as organic entries).

So I set the segment as below, to filter out entries that don't have tracking codes.

And then set Entries and Visits as metric values.

You can see that with "Visits" metric, the segment works fine.

But with "Entries" metric, Tracking Codes that don't fit the condition are also shown.

 

I'm curious why the "Entries" metric doesn't work, and to actually calculate "Entries without tracking codes" which metric I should use.

 

Thanks in advance!

Dear hyejik65885166,

Entries didn't mean the first page but the first-dimensional item so the attributions are different than the 'Hit'.

Try excluding the 'Visit' with tracking code exists or 'Visitor' with tracking code exists.ScreenGrab.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are looking for the answer to why it is happening I am going to write a blog now. Will keep you posted on the blog link once I have completed it.

Thanks, Pratheep Arun Raj.

Thanks! Changing the segment condition worked. But I'd still like to understand the logic behind it. Give me a notice when you finish posting on your blog. Thanks again!
