Goal/funnel set up inconsistencies

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I've been trying to set up our goals/funnels but keep running into problems:

 

1. When I try to verify the set up, I get this msg: This Goal would have a 0% conversion rate based on your data from the past 7 days. Try a different setup.  

I really can't see what I'm doing wrong here, please also see the reverse goal path below to show the visited pages.

2. The funnel visualisation page shows entries only at the destination/goal page even though the reverse goal path (above) shows the correct page visits order

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi :-)

Changint the goal match type to Regular Expression (instead of Equals to) should fix the issue

 

Thanks

Hi :-)

 

1) Goal verification is only an indicator based on the data from the past 7 days. If there is not enough goal conversion data from the past 7 days collected, then it will return a 0% conversion rate.

 

2) It can take up to 48hrs for some reports to show data. 

Reverse goal path is a seperate report to the Funnel Visualization

 

 

Some reports have a 24-48hr processing delay.

The goals are now reporting as expected, so I'd give it 24hrs or so and recheck the funnel visalization report

to see if it is starting to display the data.
