Universal Analytics alternativ get method cross domain tracking

Hi Community Team, Hi @all,

 

is there a way transmitting the _ga - variable

 

http://myWebpage?_ga=<ID>

 

for cross domain-tracking ( universal analytics ) without using the get-method f.i. sending the

tracking information via post?

 

Our aim: The _ga-Param shouldn't be shown in the url without losing the cross-domain

tracking functionality / process.

 

Any Idea?

 

Thx in advance for your efforts!

Are you trying to use the linker plugin? If not try the following: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/linker

Also you can use the regular UA code for Cross-Domain tracking: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cross-domain

Is this what you're referring to?
