    hey there blackhatter roomies!

    and good superbowl sunday to you! :cheerlead:chef2:

    I have a very specific question about Google analytics.
    ....

    Can I use the free version of Google analytics to chart visitors
    specifically for
    multiple sites?

    AND if it can do that, can it also breakdown the stats "per page" if I install it on more than one page, on a given site?

    example if I have 2 sites;

    Website A

    page 1
    page 2
    page 3

    and

    Website B

    page 1
    page 2
    page 3


    So can it tell me how many visitors specifically came to "page 1" and "page 2" and so on for "Website A" ?

    and then again individual "per page" stats for "Website B"?

    I know that's a lot to ask of a free product (can't afford expenditures at the moment) Hoping to get someone with actual google analytics experience on multiple sites that knows for certain

    thank you roomies!

    Hali~!:)

    For sure you can
    That and much more
    You can see how many, how long, where from and so on for every single page on your website.
    And adding more than one website to g-anal is no problem either..:p

    thanks wrappen

    well I figured out how to do multiple sites, but still perplexed
    on showing stats from the individual pages within a site, and breaking those down by "page"?

    any experience anyone?

    Can you give me an idea of how to accomplish that?

    hali~!:)

    1. In the Profile Settings page, click the Add Filter link.
    2. Choose Add New Filter and provide the filter a name.
    3. Choose Custom Filter and select Advanced on the Filter type settings.
    4. Under Advanced settings:
    1. FieldA should be set to Hostname
    2. FieldB should be set to Request URI
    5. Set the values for both Field A and Field B to (.*), which is an expression that captures all characters.
    6. Set the Output To --> Constructor option to Request URI and provide $A1$B1 as the value for that choice.
    After this you can use the normal page reports to get what you need.

    thank you so much osterman,

    that was incredibly helpful...
    I completed the steps as you outlined

    I completed the steps, and thought that a new code would be provided
    for me to paste into the footer of the particular page I was setting the
    filter for, but it did not...?

    If I may ask, was I supposed to amend the domain suffix when it asked me
    to select which site I was applying the filter to? (it was in the lower portion
    of the page)

    it showed (e.g.) mydomain.com >>>> so I moved it over

    was I suupposed to at that point amend the suffix of the domain?
    I'm just a bit confused at this juncture...

    any clarification would be fantastic!

    hali~!:)

    You use your original analytics code.
    What this does is add the first part of the url to the pages being tracked.
    ie. instead of /directory/page.php it shows samplesite/directory/page.php in your reports.
    However it does not update your old data.

    Sorry I can't post url's, this one should show you the tracking code you need to use. This url is at Google

    hey guys,

    I tried placing the same exact code only once in
    each of my sites, and it works!

    at least so far things seem as desired

    they are WP sites, so I've learned (even though I may
    designate 1 page "static") as long as I place the code "once" in the
    Footer it shows me stats for each site AND each page (YES!!!! I thinks me hears cheers !)

    :gay::cheer2::raiinbow::beach_pla

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO happy!

    that was so easy! I mean I had no idea

    but thank you again osterman and chris for your help

    YOu two were so nice I gave you "rep" and bumped you to a 13 rep!!
    YEAHHHH!


    Hali~!:) (happier hali than usual!)
