How to Track/ Differentiate Between the Traffic of a domain, Subdomain and subfolder?

Hey! Guys,

 

So, I recently created 1 website. 

Example.com It's a store from which I'm selling some stuff. I also have a blog on the same niche with a broader angle on a subfolder. I.e., 

example.com/blog 

and also running a mobile website. 

example.com/m

 

But, I have the same GA code inserted in all of them. My question is that. Is this practice is good. Or should I separate all of these? Which will be a little tough? 

Second if this is correct then how to differentiate the traffic. So, that I can get a clear vision on where the traffic is coming from and on which page it is going.

Hey War Lord,

 

Yes, you should have the same GA code implementation across all sub-directories and for that matter sub-domains.  

 

Basically you want a users journey to always be tracked cohesively on one tracker.  

 

If you want to create separate views, you can do this by creating a filter based on request URI.

 

Best,
