Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have site A.com with GA tracking. I have site B.com with different GA account tracking where I have conversions. What type of tracking/code do I need to implement on site B.com to track conversions on B.com in A.com GA reporting? Note I want to know if someone visited site A.com and then non-directly went to B.com and converted on B.com

Hi Braden,

 

You'll need to set up cross-domain tracking across domain A.com and B.com.

You'll find the instructions from here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034342?hl=en

 

Keep in mind that you'll need to use exactly the same tracking ID (UA-XXXXXXX-Y) on both websites in order to make it work. You don't need to change the existing ID's but you'll need to add a new and exactly the same tracking ID on both websites.

 

Hope this helps.
