Tracking 6 sites with 7 properties, one master property[ Edited ]
February 2017 - last edited February 2017
I'm about to track 6 sites, all with their own UA-number and their own tracking code. I will not be using Google Tag Manager but the analytics.js tracking code. What I want to do is to track all these 6 sites toward one master view but also with their own property in analytics. The 6 sites all have their own channel and are administrated separately but will share the same domain: example.com but will be separated by example.com/se, example.com/us example.com/dk etc. There will be in totalt 7 different UA-xxxxxx, where as one of them will be implemented on all of the 6 sites. The "master view".
Will this work? The 6 separate tracking codes will have no problem tracking, but will the master gather information from all 6 properties and repport accordingly in to one master view?
My idea of the script. The master view is specified by UA-XXXXX-Z
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Y', 'auto');
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Z', 'auto', 'clientTracker');
Tracking 6 sites with 7 properties, one master property
I think that you could just run one property and UA code and one master view.
Then for the 6 example.com/us, example.com/se you could just create multiple views and apply 2 filters (one to include the domain name in reporting, and one to filter only the example.com/us or /se)
Then for each view you can assign permissions to allow specific users to manage each.
