Forward Domain Tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We are switching to a new domain name.  We are forwarding the old domain to the new domain.  I want to track visits from both domains.  For example:

 

Old domain: www.name.com

New domain: www.phone.com

 

name.com is being forwarded to phone.com, but need to track visits from both URLs/domains.  What is the easiest way to do this?

Hi,

You can use the URL builder tool to build a tagged URL for the new domain and redirect the old domain to the tagged URL.
Please find the URL builder tool here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en
Based on the campaign parameters you set you will be able to identify traffic from the old domain.

Hope this helps.
