Multiple cross-domain tracking

Hi guys! 

 

Gotta a little case for you all. 

 

I need to add a list of more than 100 domains for cross-domain tracking. The thing is, I'm not sure if adding them only to the Referral Exclusion List will do the job. I'm wondering if I would need to add all of them in GTM even if it's seems barely feasible because of characters limit. 

 

And even though I added some already, the Goal A set up on the form page (which is generated on a domain from within a list of 100+ domains) is showing as direct traffic for all the goal completions which is surely untrue. 

 

Has anyone deal with that kind of cross-domain tracking?

 

Thx!

 

P.S. Yes, there's a GTM code added on all the domains (100+)

Hey Samuel,

 

Sounds like a dream client....  probably has a lot of iframes too... Smiley Very Happy

 

Well, if you've added them to the referral exclusion, you should see the traffic as direct - that's the affect of Referral Exclusion as direct does not overwrite anything. 

 

Have you tried to add the entire list?  You can always break it up with additional tags and variables if needed.  (yuck!)

 

Best of luck!

Right now, I removed my GA tag and added GA as a custom HTML tag with the whole list of domains to track (on which GTM is already set up). 

 

I'll see what it'll do.

Hey Samuel,

 

Just curious, did GTM actually fail saving the variable with the list of domains? 

 

Best,
