Hello. How do I set up Google Analytics to allow me to track traffic from a sub-domain to our main domain?

EX: I want to know how much traffic 'example.com' is receiving from 'blog.example.com'

Thank you for your help.

Hey Jen,

 

Easiest way, assuming you have a proper implementation of universal, is to create a segment where the landing page is on the blog subdomain or sequence based segment where on the user level where the first interaction is on that hostname... something like this:

 

https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=stNYkl0-T3OXM9ZZ1trceA

 

This is a user based segment, if you only want to know the sessions in which this occurs, change to sessions.

 

Best,
