Goal Destination

Hi all,

 

I was asking this question in many forums, but I am not getting the exact answer. I think I will find exact answer here

 

I want to add one URL to "destination URL" to track goals in google analytics. I don't know how to enter for this type of URL.

eg my site is www. abc.com contains some document page, so the user visiting my page can go to document page say www.abc.com/doc1.aspx can see the document page but can't able to reply it unless they log into when they logged in their URL will be  http:// myaccount.abc.com/doc1.aspx

if I want to track the count visitors of doc1 without logging in by --- adding /doc1.aspx destination URL ,

 

Now I want to get the count of people who viewed the file by logging in to "my account"

now how will I track the doc as

destination URL as /myaccount.abc.com/blog1.aspx (not working for me)
please suggest

I think i am clear with my question

Hi @Nandhakumar J

 

It's not exactly clear to me what you have done but I would ask if you have tested using the entire URL as your destination goal for the logged in user?  Given that you have a sub-domain there, I'm pretty sure that you'll need the full URL.  http://myaccount.abc.com/blog1.aspx 

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Nandhakumar,

You don't really need a goal for this. Just go to your content reports to the pages in question and add in a secondary dimension of hostname. This will show you whether the view took place on myaccount.abc.com or on abc.com.

There are many ways that you could also modify the URI using virtual pagenames, etc. or you could combine the hostname and URI with a filter, but if a secondary dimension does the trick there's no reason to do anything else.

Thanks for the reply. Can you say me how to assign a goal for those subdomain links after doing the above-mentioned filter?

I should get the goal value like other goals

example

order confirmation (goal name)
/thanks.html (Destination url)
56 (conversion goals)

like this how i can set up for subdomain after doing filter ?

Hi Nandhakumar,

If you do the filter to combine the hostname and the URI, then the content reports contain both and you would use the full pattern, e.g. begins with myaccount.abc.com/doc1.aspx or regex myaccount\.abc.com/doc1\.aspx or just regex doc1\.aspx if you don't care on which subdomain it took place.

or if more than one page regexd myaccount\.abc.com/doc1\.asp|doc12.aspx

Lastly you could just use doc1\.aspx and then set a custom dimension for the session when someone is logged-in and use that in your analysis.
