Hi ulefos,

 

Looks to me like you are using a shopping cart on a different domain than your landing page. In that case, the linker is required. After the pageview is fine. This is not procedural code, it's just defining some options. It really shouldn't make much difference whether you place it before or after the pageview. If it were me, I'd follow your shopping cart provider's advice.

 

Best of Luck!

Below is the code on my thank you page.

 

<!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i["GoogleAnalyticsObject"]=r;i[r]=i[r]||function()
{(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
})(window,document,"script","//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js","ga");

ga("create", "UA-xxxxxxx-1", {"cookieDomain":"auto"});
ga("require", "linkid", "linkid.js");
ga("require", "displayfeatures");
ga("send", "pageview");
//--><!]]>

 

This is what my shopping cart providers say i need do, add code below.

<script>
(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXX-1', 'auto');
ga('send', 'pageview');
ga('require', 'linker');
ga('linker:autoLink', ['romancart.com']);
</script>

 

Should i add this

ga('require', 'linker');
ga('linker:autoLink', ['romancart.com']); to below and if so where would it go. Before or after pageview.

 

<!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i["GoogleAnalyticsObject"]=r;i[r]=i[r]||function()
{(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
})(window,document,"script","//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js","ga");

ga("create", "UA-xxxxxxx-1", {"cookieDomain":"auto"});
ga("require", "linkid", "linkid.js");
ga("require", "displayfeatures");
ga("send", "pageview");
//--><!]]>

Hi there,

 

Last seen but no conversion - that means that someone visited the page who didn't come from AdWords. Google is just reassuring you that the tracking is in place, even though you might not have had any recent conversions.

Thank you, that makes sense, could you beable to advise on the tracking code above, should this part of code go before or after pageview.

ga('require', 'linker');
ga('linker:autoLink', ['romancart.com']);
