Hello Community,

 

I have a Website with are reachable under http and https. Now I will track the visitors with use http and with use https.

But on the filters in analytics I only find hostname with is without the protocol.
 
Is there an change that I can track both protocols and can use latter a filter for http and https.
 

Example:
A user is using http in the shop, when switching to the ordering process, it switch to https. To order or change in a product category that is on https protocol.

 
With my best regards

Hi Kai,

 

It's an interesting question Smiley Happy

 

Although, it's not  directly related to Adwords here, but I would try to give it a shot with my understanding here in terms of Analytics filters and all.

 

One way could be that you create a funnel and include the pages (which will include both i.e. http and https pages) starting from creating an account to check out process and then using the advanced segment to check the abandon rate. This could give you an idea about which pages are most important and which one need a fix whether http or https.

 

There are filters like Request URL and Host Name available under custom settings, which can be tried using RegEx inside Google Analytics profile.

 

I would also recommend posting this in Google Analytics help forum for deeper understanding and better opinions.

 

Just a thought!

Hello Pankaj,

 

I am looking forward to see you Smiley Happy

 

BTW - We have probably found a solution http and https to filter based on the example described.

 
Example:
A user is using http in the shop, when switching to the ordering process, it switch to https. To order or change in a product category (same session of the user), the protocol remains to https.
 
For further evaluation:
We use for http -> www.xxx and for https -> ssl.xxx so we can filter based on the host name. With the .htaccess file we derive then left to old https://www.xxx on https://ssl.xxx.
