URLs in reports ommit folder

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello everybody,

 

I've inherited a site and related GA account which I'm trying to make sense of, and I'm having the following problem:

 

Pages that are in the www.mysite.com/folder/samplepage.aspx do produce hits, but in the reports are listed as www.mysite.com/samplepage.aspx. When clicking on them the browser opens the same URL, naturally resulting in glorious 404 all around. 

 

I can't for the life of me see what has been set up wrong, so could anyone help me?

 

Thanks!

Hi Themistocles,

tell us your actual site so we may take a look at it more closely.

Ah, no problem, I wasn't sure about the etiquette. I'm talking about www.magna-trust.com .


Thanks, really appreciated!

Can you confirm if there are any filters setup for the GA view, which might be manipulating the data in GA.

Only a couple of IP-exclusion filters, nothing that really affects the rest.

format?

simple QA we can do:

Install GA debug: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jnkmfdileelhofjcijamephohjechhna
location (&dl) https://www.magna-trust.com/forex/registeraccount.aspx
trackingId (&tid) UA-69851657-1
confirm the above two values. in chrome console.
In GA reports check under Real Time > Content
You should see: /forex/registeraccount.aspx

Since "Page": The pages visited, listed by URI. The URI is the portion of a page's URL following the domain name; for example, the URI portion ofwww.example.com/contact.html is/contact.html.

Imagine that; I started following the steps you listed, and couldn't understand where you found UA-69851657-1 since the property uses UA-69851657-4. Seems like several pages under /forex/ were activated with the wrong id, I guess that must be it then... Let me confirm and I'll get back.

 

Thanks again!!
