http to https Self refferal exclusion
currently I have single universal analytics tracking code for all but the third one that has another universal analytics tracking code
how could I just have the third one to act as a separate website with showing referral traffics and others as a self referral?
P.S. mydomain.com and account.mydomain.com are in my refferal reports with above 20% of refferal traffic.
Re: http to https Self refferal exclusion
having cookieDomain:auto and mydomain.com in referral exclusion list should 'solve' the issue - in some of the cases instead of the self referral issue you may notice an increase in direct sessions.
So for instance:
mydomain.com (GA property 1) > https://mydomain.com (GA property 1) - all will work just fine
mydomain.com (GA property 1) > account.mydomain.com (GA property 2) > mydomain.com (GA property 1) - this is where some issues will occur such as for property 1 you will have an increase in direct sessions similar to GA property 2. Since you can cross these domains and sub domains while experiencing a process you should consider tracking all in the same GA property which will reduce or totally remove all self referrals.
Hope it helps.
