When our GA code spans multiple domains and/or subdomains, we should have an extra filter in place. GA typically displays just the URI, so everything after the domain. How valuable is it to see traffic for /, when we know that the homepage could be for one of several sites or subdomains? This data needs to be separated.
Below is an advanced filter. This filter pairs the hostname with the request URI, then replaces the request URI with this match. So instead of having / come into GA for the homepage, we would now see www.seerinteractive.com/.
So you can copy/paste, the information is:
- Hostname: (.*)
- Request URI: (.*)
- Output to Request URI: $A1$B1
As always, make sure you test this on a test profile first!!
