Google Analytics 4: Cross Platform Tracking Possible?

I have a website and a mobile app (Android and iOS). Say the user visits our website https://example.com/app-xy, clicks on a link to the Play Store, and downloads the app from there. Then inside the app, the user makes a purchase. Is it possible to track this user all the way from website visit to purchase?

I know it’s possible via User Id, but for that it seems the user has to create an account on the website (and we don’t want that). https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/9964640?hl=en

I guess what I want is similar to Cross Domain Tracking https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/10071811?hl=en only the tracking is between mobile browser and mobile app.

google analytics – How to calculate a conversion goal value for a large sample size?

I need to assign a conversion goal value for user actions made on a website.

I have already processed the data for a sample size of 210 paid invoices. The statistical analysis of the income values can be seen in the results below…

How to link new Google Analytics (version 4) property with Search Console?

I just created the other day a Google Analytics property for a new website, and it was created using the new Analytics version (v4). Now I’m trying to link it to my existing Search Console account for that website, but cannot find a way to do so. I go to “Admin” / “Property” / “Product linking”, and I don’t see Search Console there:

Google Analytics setup

How can I link them both? Or… is it necessary at all with the new Google Analytics? Does it have other features that make up for it?

Using Google Analytics to track popularity a series of checkboxes on a webpage

I have a WebPage page that has lots of checkboxes on. Each one does something different. I would like to know which of these checkboxes is most popular with users.

I am aware that I can assign Analytics Events by class to these checkboxes but that would either require me to:

  • Give every checkbox the same class and assign a blanket event
  • Create a new event for every checkbox, using a different class each time

If i were to go with the former and give every checkbox the same class, is there a way in the Analytics dashboard to disaggregate those events by the checkbox ID, or some other variable that differentiates them from each-other?

Equally, is there a better, alternative, way of approaching this?

Pageviews by Source/Medium in Google Analytics

I know that generally we shouldn’t combine metrics and dimensions of different scope, however I also know that there are some exceptions.

Is Pageviews by Source/Medium one of those exceptions or not? And if yes, why are we allowed to combine them?

Thanks.

Can I use Google Analytics on URL shortener redirects powered by PHP?

I have a short URL website like Bitly which currently redirect users with PHP from my site to a site of their choice. I want to add Google Analytics to the redirect pages but I am stuck on the problem where Javascript is run after the PHP code is executed so it wont work.

Bellow is the last part of the PHP code that redirects users from the short URL to the URL they shortend. I wonder if there is anyway to make this work OR change my code somehow so that Google Analytics can be executed either with PHP or something else that can do the “redirection”?

$shortUrlObj contains the short url code. If the short url is https://example.com/1234 $shortUrlObj contains 1234. fullUrl is the website destination they choose to shorten. So if the user shortened https://stackexchange.com, fullUrl contains https://stackexchange.com

switch ($redirect)
{
    default:
        header('HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily');
        redirect($shortUrlObj->fullUrl);
        break;
}

How do I find the most popular directories on Google Analytics?

reporting – Google Analytics 4 PDF report does not show all data

I am a web developer, and I recently created a new property in Google Analytics 4, this was the first time. My other client’s properties are in the old GA, and each month I send them a pageviews and traffic acquisition report.

Trying to recreate those two old reports, I can see on the screen basically the same information, but trying to export it into PDF, data is lost.

When I take these steps:

  • Home
  • Go to Page and Screens panel and press the View pages and screens
  • Press the share button along the top right
  • Select Download File
  • Select Download PDF

Open the PDF and it showing about a half the data I see on the screen. So, for example, if I have only 10 rows showing on the screen, that is all that is in the report. On my screen I can see all the columns of data, but on the report, it only shows what it can in the portrait page of the PDF and about half of the columns are not shown.

Is there a way to easily send this information to my client in Google Analytics 4?
