Adding more than 25 data views per property

I would like to have more than 25 data views for my property. I would like to differentiate between data from several domains without using segments.

 

However, Google states: "Each Analytics account can have up to 50 properties and each property can have up to 25 views. Contact your support representative if you need more properties or views."

I do not use Analytics Premium. What should I do?

As per my understanding there is no other way except for premium account. This is the limitation at Product level.

Thanks Sam.

 

Maybe I have to reconsider and use segments instead of data views.

 

I am familiar with the difference between data views and segments:

 

  • Segment – For a segment, every visit is checked to see if it satisfies the conditions of the segment. For sessions that satisfy the condition, all rows are returned. For sessions that do not, no rows are returned.
  • Filter – For a filter all the rows for ALL visits are considered, then only the rows that satisfy the conditions of the filter will be returned.

Segments are subject to certain limits:

I wonder to what extend I should give up data views and use segments instead.

Yes, Segment is better option here to consider as we don't have any other option.

Use the segment and try analysing the data, if you feel at any point of time segments won't work beyond this then look for alternate option.

Had used segment and did worked perfectly, only thing you need to keep in mind is 'Sampling', use below link to understand abt sampling
