Analytics for a Chrome Extension
in the Chrome Web Store

 12:52 pm on Oct 22, 2013 (gmt 0)

How do I track traffic sources and conversions for my extension on the Chrome Web Store? It looks like there’s only data for users and installations. Or I'm missing something?

I can see traffic sources for my Chrome Web Store items. Did you set the analytics id properly inside your web store items?

Or are you referring to the analytics inside the chrome webstore? Yes they are limited to users and installations. You have to use Google Analytics product.

Yes, I'd like to use Google Analytics and I've added the GA ID to the extension in Chrome. And in the GA reports (create a new profile, maybe?) I want to see the correlation between traffic and conversions (installs).

I think there are a few different use cases we talk about:

1. Google analytics inside your chrome extension to track visits, page views, events etc inside your chrome extension
2. Google analytics inside your webstore listing to track visitors, traffic source, installations etc from your webstore listing
3. Stats from google developer dashboard

So if You want to use 2 you have to add your GA ID to your webstore listing and NOT to your extension.

I hope this is helpful.
