I am trying to determine the number of total Page Views vs the number of total view events on the same page. However, I see a verience between two metrics on the same page. Page Views metric is higher %0.1 more.
Can someone offer some advice as how to understand why a view event doesn't fire100% the same with pageviews on the same page?
Here are some differences to know more about Page Views, Page Events and Visits
Hope this helps.
The page views metric and the total view events on the same page are not equal because the page view call occurs when a user visits the page but on the other hand the event call occurs when the user clicks or interacts with the page. Also, view events exclude page views.
Therefore, you get to see an increase in the page views as compared to the view events. Hope this resolves your query.
Hey @Mehmet83 - The ‘events’ metric shows the number of times any link tracking call was made. This metric is helpful when you want to understand which pages have the most engaging content. Measurement for this metric is most valuable when a visitor can perform an action on the page without navigating to a new page.
Page views counts the number of page view tracking calls, and excludes links whereas Page events count the number of link tracking tracking calls (tl()), and excludes page view tracking calls (t()).
