I agree, this is needed. Across an organisation with many report suites,
custom variables are usually the same. Therefore, when creating a
segment, we should be able to share it on as many report suites as we
I don't have access to processing rules for now, but will look into it.
In the meantime, I am going to double check all the eVars I have looking
for a way to get the info. And sometimes look at GA if necessary. Thank
you so much for your time and effort. This truly helps me understanding
how all variables work together.
I am not sure if I created the segment as you suggested. Here's how it
looks : I also tried without the path length equals 1. In the pages
report, it only gives me the total pages views of that page, not of all
the pages in this visit. Could this be achieved by using another report?
Thank you for helping me with this,
Great, thanks for all those quick anwwers today. I truly appreciate the
time and effort you put in making my life easier. But let's say I want
to push this a step further. GA provides the landing page, a visit count
(but I prefer Omniture's instances), and total page views of the visit
which started from this landing page. The solution you gave me provides
page views of this landing page only. I realize that what I am trying to
do is consider those landing pages (from facebook or any other socia...
It seems to work. I just have a quick question relating to this way of
getting the info : It appears that by using that segment and using it in
the pages report, I get visits that included this page, not necessarily
visits that started with this page. Is this correct?
It seems to me as your assessment is correct. I did not think about it
that way. So in your opinion, is there a way that I could configure this
kind of report on my own pretty easily and get the same kind of info?
This is what I mean : the actual url that was shard on Facebook. I know
my referring domain is facebook.com. What I am interested in is which
link shared on Facebook truly generated visits. Here is a print screen
of what GA does. Let me know if there is already a way to get that info
or if you have any more questions. Have a nice day!
When using data warehouse, asking for week granularity in year end, it
automatically splits the last week in "week 53" and "week 0". Therefore
making it impossible to have unduplicated visitors or returning visitors
or any other metric for that specific week. It would be nice if, with
week granularity, we could really have it. Not getting data for two
split weeks. Thank you for this.
It would be nice to know, in the source of traffic, the shared url from
Facebook. We have the referring domain. It would provide better insight
if we could have what url was shared on Facebook. Since Google Analytics
does it out of the box now, I assume Adobe can also upgrade its tools
with that function. Because asking our Community Manager to add tracking
campaign codes to every single post is not feasable. Thanks!
