Same Campaign Name but Different URLs?

I want to start a campaign for our annual report. We will have two links on our website: the annual report subdomain (fy15.mysite.com) and a blog post about the annual report (mysite.com/year/date/title). I want to track clicks on social to both of these links but have them under the same campaign name, since they are both pertaining to the annual report. Note that the blog post will also have a link to the subdomain (fy15.mysite.com) and I will want to track who clicks through to the subdomain from the post (assuming I can just use previous page path to see that).

 

Is this okay? Should I make two campaigns instead? Or should I forget about the blog post and just track the campaign on the subdomain?

Hey Geri,

From what I understood from your post, all you have to do is use URL Builder for each URL:
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en

Even with the same Campaign name, you would be able to see information for each page by accessing the left menu at: Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages. From there, just add a "Secondary Dimension" for "Source / Medium" and you'll have everything separated.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

if you need to track Campaign efficiency for 2 distinct Landing pages tagged with the same campaign use Behaviour > Site content > Landing pages report instead - and add a secondary Campaign or Source / Medium dimension depending on what you report on. All pages report answers a different question not really applicable here.
