Is it possible to have Analytics fire only on certain pages? I tried adding a path condition in DTM to the page load rule, but that didn't seem to make any difference at all. I'm now trying to accomplish the same result by deactivating the beacon via the following custom code:
As I'm trying to fire Analytics only where "whatever" is present in the URL, this was slightly incorrect, as the comparison operator should have been == and not !=.
The guidance from customer care is:
You can navigate to Analytics tool (link) in the web property and "Open Editor" from Customize Page Code section (screenshot attached). Therein, you can write a code with the below logic. Please note, I won't be able to share the exact code, however I'll be just sharing the logic that can be converted to the code.
Thanks Alexis-- customer care confirms this as the correct solution, although I'm still not seeing the results that I would expect. I'll follow up with any additional insight once I have a complete solution. I would imagine that the issue lies with me and how I'm setting up the rules/conditions, rather than this approach itself.
Go to Global Variables section in DTM, and open the custom script section. Add the code s.abort(). This will disable any default/global tracking. Once you do this, you should be able to create seperate rules for each pages based on your path conditions.
