It's somewhere in the help files for analytics about why GA shows less data than your other statistics package.
Also, if you have multiple IPs to exclude you can use a pipe to separate values, like so:
As for your goal tracking, make sure you don't select exact match.
P.S. While surfing I'm noticing this code on pages all over the place. They are probably right that this thing caught on faster then they predicted.
I'll added ^, we'll see if it gona work out.
Actually google could implement some testing tools for regexps, goal tracking. Afaik there's the only way to see if my goal tracking, regexps work just by waiting for the next day of stats.
I've just checked my settings of goals and my match types are set to "head match" it means GA should track for
But it doesn't..
Maybe it's due "http://" but I doubt. I also checked twice that my urls on site are:
if it is matters.
Actually I'm out of ideas why my goals arent tracked.
I've also noticed that the content reports don't show any data at all, although the page visists have numbers. Again, in the help files it says something about that (highlights by me)
Currently, report updating for Google Analytics is experiencing delays. As a result, you may not be seeing any data in your reports even after implementing the Analytics tracking code.
We are currently in the process of updating all reports. You should be able to see these updates in 24 hours. While this is going on, you may notice different reports updating at different rates. Once this process has completed, all data should be restored to your profiles. Please be assured that this update process has no effect on data collection.
We apologize for any inconvenience. This reporting delay is associated with unexpected demand for Google Analytics. Under normal circumstances, the data in your reports will be at most 24 hours old.
I guess we're some time away from normal circumstances still.
Anyone else with such a delay?
One nice thing, though: I'm not an Adwords subscriber, so was not used to tracking campaigns, but I created an e-mail with tracking codes yesterday and sent it to a test group. This is great! Seeing how many people actually clicked through to your web site from the email will be really nice when using in marketing campaigns.
Pity, though, that due to no content reports, I can't drill down to where they actually went.
But I'm sure G will sort that out eventually
When I view the reports in Camino, they're showing no data. When I view them in Firefox, they are showing data. Oddly, yesterday the reports displayed in Camino.
Irregularities and launch pains aside, this is fantastic software. It's better than a leading stats package that I paid $900 for, that ended up breaking when our traffic surged (I would have had to pay $8000 for the enterprise edition).
As long as Google doesn't abuse their access to this info (e.g. use this data to determine SERPS rankings), I see this as a fantastic development.
You have to think that they are going to work out all these growing pains shortly...
Anyone else notice this?
This will be a great service when they finally solve their performance issues.
Tracking which pages convert adsense is pretty cool though. And is the biggest reason I want to test this out.
I was worried about the page load times especially when it first launched and almost removed it. But it has certainly sped up quite a bit.
I noticed a drop in sales over last year beginning almost exactly when the google-analytics code was added to the site. Kinda kicking myself for taking so long to make the connection. It was a significant drop though, let's say something like going from being up 70+% to half that or so.
I might do an a/b/a test in january where b is with tracking code, but for now it is gone.
This alone is responsible for several seconds of load-time but also relieves me from worrying about possible third-party issues thou I will say in Google's case, although privacy is always a concern, I trust them in an overall sense, I feel they are a good company but that's just me.
It showed 2 visitors, from Today.?!?!?
Collecting stats that whole 2 weeks the code was up there it was not. So unless the stats appear, I basicaly slowed down my own page loading the last 2 weeks for nothing.
You get what you pay for
