Analytics for AMP

Hey there,

 

I integrated Analytics in my AMP template, however while it tracks the users, time on site is always 0 seconds and bounce quote 100%. What am I doing wrong?

Client IDs are managed very differently with AMP pages - https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/amp-analytics/client-id#client_id_scena...

As I understand it, what you are seeing is expected behavior.

Thanks! So, the problem I'm thinking about is if I want to monetize my articles with an external partner (not adsense), but for example a company booking ad space on my page - the amp pages would a) take away from my website traffic, so I can take less money for theses ads or b) I wouldn't know exactly what I'm selling the company because the only hard number I got for amp is total visits. Is this correct?

Publishers are having issues with this all over - they are still keeping their paywall but that's it. But if you look at the implementation (https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/amp-analytics/#event_tracking) you can still measure click events and social media shares. This gives you alternative monetization options!

Thanks! But what could be a good click event anyway? Click on an ad or what
is meant by that? And most people will probably share through built in
phone options and not via the social share icons. So that would get you
just half of the truth either.... :/

I would use a simple banner or text call-to-action link.

Thanks! Do you know if it's possible to see a combined view of amp and
website visitors in analytics? Btw, my ad revenue is already declining....

Actually, Google recommends setting up and use a separate property for AMP measurement. You might take a look at this Google Sheets add-on to create reports that include multiple properties. https://developers.google.com/analytics/solutions/google-analytics-spreadsheet-add-on
