Related products - How it works

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Dear All,

 

I am just trying to find out how related products section works. I Have seen in query explorer that is available a field "Correlation Model ID".

 

Does anyone know what's the algorithm used behind the scenes for the related product section creation?

 

Thanks for all the help you can provide.

Hi Miniera,

there is no explanation available for that. The best publicly available article I've seen to date covering the basics of what the Feature is can be found here:
http://www.lunametrics.com/blog/2016/03/28/find-related-products-purchased-together-in-google-analyt.... The only trick, afaik, is that the correlation score is based on transactions inside a sessions o it does not cover a user based overview in terms of user A bought product X today and product Y 7 days ago.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,
Zorin
