Hi,

 

Visitors enter at site.com/ecourse.html and thankyou page is site.com

What do I put in 'destination' url if the goal url is my website homepage?

I selected - Equals to - and No funnel.

 

Thanks

Unless you have filters in place that rewrite the urls, how is the homepage of the website reported in the pageview report

Does it get reported as just a slash / or a page name such as index.html (or similar) or does GA report the home page in a variety of different ways?

 

eta.are you able to setup a different page apart from the home page as the thank you page, or are you able to append parameters to the url if they land there from  site.com/ecourse.html? as it means any time someone touches the website homepage once during the same session it will be recorded as a goal conversion otherwise

 

If you setup a funnel and set the first step as being required site.com/ecourse.html
then at least in the goal funnel, only visitors that have come via the required page will show as a funnel conversion
