Hi,

In Google Analytics under Geo-Location, one of the countries shows not set. How to rectify that. Please find the screen shot attached.6.png

Hi,

Google Analytics uses a third-party datasource to determine your visitors' geographical locations. If our third-party vendor does not have an accurate record of the visitor location, Google Analytics displays a (not set) entry.

Thanks. But is there not an option to change/ remove it.

Hi,

 

You can’t remove “Not Set” in google analytic default reports.

But you can make a custom report that excludes “Not Set”.

 

You can use Filter option in View. In order to do that you have to create a new view and filter your location traffic.


Admin>View>Filter>Custom>Exclude>Filter Field (Town/City)

In filter pattern put (not set)

This will help you to exclude your not set traffic from analytics report.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards,
