GA - Different domains / cross domain tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey,

I'm not very experienced with GA, trying to read up and learn.

My plan is to use GTM for cross domain tracking.

 

From what i have read, people use the same analytics id for all the domains.

Is this the most common way to set up GA with several domains?

 

I have GA with all on the same account, but the domains have different GA ID.

Is this somthing i should change or is it away to do cross domain tracking with different GA ID's.

Hi Magnus,

I suggest you do the following:
* Have a unique GA ID (Property) like you already have for each domain
* Have one GA ID (Parent Property) that you will implement on ALL domains (all pages), this will become your control
* Create a cross domain filter for the parent account so that it shows your full domain name in analytics http://pasteboard.co/1SdFqlXG.png
