Tracking by site sections

    Hey

    I was wondering if can help out. Im a bit green to GA but have to set it up on a site as were doing a comparison to an enterprise analytics provider we have installed

    Im getting lost about setting up tracking of site sections.

    Heres where I have got to (and its not that far)

    My account is set up and I have added 15 profiles (which I understand to be sections) All good so far :) under these I have added the default URL where appropriate

    So my question is will it pick everything

    eg mydomain.com/vGcars

    will also pick up everything which is associated to cars eg mydomain.com/vGcardsre124 , mydomain.com/vGcardsre126

    To add to it half the site is set up this way and the other half using sub directorys
    SEMrush
    I did see that for every profile you create you get a profile ID and I had thought I could just pull in this profile ID into the GA code as a reference for a section, but apparently not

    I thought setting up channel tracking would be straightforward, but any help or advice anyone can give I would really appreciate it !

    Thanks in advance

    Just leave it the way it is. Google Analytics is designed to track your statistics and traffic.

    I worked out I was being stupid as have been using Omniture so long and GA is the reverse eg apply code and configure in console versus configure code/calls

    But thanks for the reply and now all the fun and games of working through reverse logic :)
