I am the owner of Vacation Rental Pros.
There are 2 things we need help on with Google Analytics.
#1. We need an AUDIT of Google Analytics to make sure we are set up right.
We just launched a brand new web site. It is not tracking all the items properly now. here is some feedback.
As I was looking over reports in Google Analytics, I noticed that there seems to be a problem with how sales are being attributed to medium, campaign, and source. Specifically, I noticed a dramatic decrease in revenue being attributed to the Email, cpc, and organic mediums since launch.
Although the overall site revenue seems steady, and I am seeing visits being recorded for all mediums, I think the missing sales are being attributed to the "referral" medium instead of where they are supposed to go.
Please take a look at the attached reports and note the increase in referral revenue ([url removed, login to view]) and specifically, the tracking for the referral source specified as "[url removed, login to view] ([url removed, login to view]). Note the drastic increase in sales between the week of launch and the prior week.
Are alternate mediums being taken into account when someone goes all the way through checkout on the new website?
There may be a possibility that the two issues are related. I considered that, but wanted to go ahead and report the unbalanced attribution of sales to the "[url removed, login to view]" referral source just in case you guys would be able to recognize what was wrong right away.
I am still not seeing sales flowing in as expected from the new site. I see zero revenue for cpc (this is noticeably abnormal) and Email (this is noticeably abnormal) when looking at my report for yesterday. So, I believe we have separate issue from the URL redirect, tag stripping problem from earlier this week.
Again, it appears that the issue lies in the attribution of sales to the proper medium, campaign, and source.
Look at the attached reports and you will see what mediums are showing sales for yesterday (see [url removed, login to view]). Also, this report shows that the referrer "[url removed, login to view]" is showing a majority of sales for the day.
I looked at the reporting history for the "[url removed, login to view]" referrer in particular and saw that this referrer wasn't even tracking any visits or revenue until the new site launched. Interesting, indeed. (see [url removed, login to view])
Please let me know if there's any way I can further assist in troubleshooting.
