Enable Google Analytics Tracking
What is Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a free web analytics tool provided by Google that helps you measure your website traffic and gather vital information about your website visitors.
How to enable
To enable Google Analytics Tracking for your Plugin we'll need your Google Analytics' Property ID.
Log in to your Analytics Account and click the cog icon in the lower left.
When a user journey crosses from your domain to Anyroad's domain, Google Analytics interprets that as the user having been referred by your domain to ours, and Google Analytics creates a new session. To be able to accurately track a single session across multiple domains, you need to add the domains anyroad.com and anyguide.com to the referral exclusion list.
Although not required, it is highly recommended to enable Enhanced Ecommerce features for your Properties, as we send metadata about your users purchasing behaviour.
What is tracked
There are multiple types of ecommerce data that are sent: impression data, product data and action data.
- Impression Data: represents information about a product that has been viewed.
Data:represents individual experiences that were viewed, etc.
- Action Data: represents information about an ecommerce
related action that has taken place.
Impression & Product Data are sent when a customer is just browsing through your experiences. Only when a customer completes a transaction is Action Data (a Purchase Event) sent to your Google Analytics Account that includes the total value of the experience, the currency used and, the unique ID of the experience as well as the unique ID of the transaction and the experiences' Name.
All of your data can be found in your Google Analytics' Enhanced Ecommerce Report
