Multiple URLs direct to single website - How do I combine into single Google Analytics Acc?

I have several urls that all direct to the same website.


Main Website URL:   6,551 views


with the following re-directed to the above main site: 381 views 243 views 181 views


Each is a variation of our company name, is like the example above. Currently each directs to the main site. So each has it's own Google Analytics site.


-- Is the traffic information duplicated from each contributing site onto the traffic of the receiving site as it is forwarded? 

So in the example - does the 6,551 contain the redirected traffic from the other sites or does the main site traffic count stand alone?

-- Can all the contributing sites be combined with the original site to give one single Google Analytics report without any duplication of traffic data from re-directed sites?


How would this goal be best achieved? 

Is it done on the Google Analytics side or on the Hosting configuration site side (ie. Godaddy?)

Please advise.

I would recommend you to use a single GA property for the main site and redirect the other domains to it. Use utm tracking parameters for each redirected URL like:


You'll be able to see traffic from your redirected domains under Acquisition -> Campaigns and you don't have to worry about duplicate counting.


Let me know if you have questions.
