Tracking Traffic From Different Directory On Same Domain As Referral[ Edited ]
November 2015 - last edited November 2015
I am helping implement Google Analytics for a number of websites that are set up as directories on the same domain. Each top-level directory is treated as a completely separate site and has it's own unique Google Analytics property.
The issue that I'm having is that If I am on www.domain.com/site-a/ and receive traffic from www.domain.com/site-b/, it is showing up as direct traffic. I'd instead like that traffic to show up as referral.
Through Google Tag Manager I've set the cookieDomain as www.domain.com for each site, and then the cookiePath as /site-a/ and /site-b/ for the respective sites.
Is my setup incorrect?
Re: Tracking Traffic From Different Directory On Same Domain As Referr
Have you set any Referral Exclusion in your accounts? Maybe the "site-b" have "site-a" as a excluded referral.
You can check that by following this steps:
- Click Admin in the menu bar at the top of any page.
- In the ACCOUNT column, use the dropdown to select the Analytics account that contains the property you want to work with.
- In the PROPERTY column, use the dropdown to select a property.
- Click Tracking Info.
- Click Referral Exclusion List.
Hope this helps.
