cross domain tracking

Hi guys,

I track my .COM website but now for region specific reasons we run the .CN version, can I use the same tracking code of the .COM or should I implement the cross domain tracking?

Thank you,

Kent

Hi Kent,

 

You should use exactly the same tracking code on your .CN website and implement cross-domain tracking as well if you'd like to see all your data in one property.

 

Here you can find step-by-step instructions on how to set this up: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034342?hl=en

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

Hi Taavi,

thank you for prompt reply, can I use the same tracking code which is already implemented without cross domain implementation?

and then create a view dedicated to CN sessions?

thank you,

It's possible but not a good practice because if visitors move from .COM to .CN, new sessions will start and it will screw up your data. So if I were you, I would implement cross-domain tracking as well. To be honest, it's not that hard. Smiley Happy

 

Maybe it's even easier for you to use GTM in order to implement cross-domain tracking. It depends, but maybe it's even a bit easier for you: https://support.google.com/tagmanager/answer/6106951
