Hello Adobe Community ,

I'm trying to study the category pages, and pages, based on the visit depth.
I made a segment on this criteria  :

visit container[
     visit depth = 2
          and

          hit container[

                propX = studied category page (let's say "Bathroom hats")

                   and

                hit depth = 2

          ]

]


My question is why, why do hit depth results > 2 show up when I use this dimention on the workspace?


Should'nt all my visits have just 2 Hit Dephts ? Hit depth = 1 and Hit depth = 2?

Kind regards,

Mario

hi mario

i made some testing and received the same results as you've written.

i have the following explanations for the reasons, but this needes to be confirmed by product management:

a) visit depth does not count repeated instances! if you have a look at page views and visits of this segment, the page views are exactly visits * 2

b) visit depth only looks at page views not at any other hit (other server calls which doesn't count as page views). on the other hand the hit depth does count for every single hit.

that said a visitor might have hit depth 1-5 while having a visit depth of 2 due to one of those reasons.

i wonder which of the reasons is correct - maybe both?

Hello Urs!

yes that seems correct!

Of course Urs! thanks a lot for the good explanation. Yes indeed I have many events and custon link in my pages that send different hits (for any connection there is like 4 events - we might reverse on this cause it's a lot of server calls!).

Great!

Cheers!
