multiple domains, poorly implemented
just started working with a company that has allowed agencies set up their Google Analytics accounts for various sites. Some I have access to, others I have view only - some of the agencies no longer exist.
There are 5 sites total - I'd like to have one master GA account and 4 sub accounts - what's the best way to set that up? Since I don't know the person who set up the previous accounts, but I can snap shot the data should I start fresh?
thanks in advance.
Re: multiple domains, poorly implemented
from a governance perspective you would probably be better off with creating new properties / accounts.
There is still the option to push data to multiple properties (on one site) so basically you would push data to a new property and the old one at the same time.
If all sites belong to a single organisation you can create one account and create multiple properties inside. If these sites are used inside some shared processes consider using only one property but add cross domain tracking support.
