Tracking Traffic from Google Shopping

Discussion in 'Shopping' started by ViciousSummer, Jul 2, 2009.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to track what traffic is coming from Google Shopping/Google Base? I know I'm getting a decent amount of traffic from it, but I can't see exactly how much traffic/conversions are coming from Google Shopping. I'm using Google Analytics and it appears that it's lumping all Google traffic (organic search and Google Shopping) into one group...

    You can tag your product url's with something like this:

    ?utm_campaign=froogle&utm_medium=organic&utm_source=froogle

    so the product url would be:
    http://www.example.com/product-page.html?utm_campaign=froogle&utm_medium=organic&utm_source=froogle

    This will then show froogle as a search engine in Google Analytics. Hope that helps :)

    I think you guys are getting the wrong end of the stick, What they are saying is that they are using GA, but they are struggling to split there organic traffic against there traffic coming from googlebase / froogle.

    I have no idea why Google made this so hard to split! Back in the day it was much clearer when traffic came from froogle.


    the only way I know of tracking the traffic from goole base is to give the feed URL's a tag

    so the product url would be: ( as intid mentioned)
    http://www.example.com/product-page.html?utm_campaign=froogle&utm_medium=organic&utm_source=froogl


    Then in your GA account look at you "landing pages" and search for urls including "source = froogle.

    Just what I wanted to say. Tag the URLs that you're submitting as product feed to froogle(Google product search). What the tags you can use (utm_campaign, utm_medium, utm_source, etc. are provided in google analytics help files/support pages. Then in your GA account you can track the landing pages. they will be tagged with source=froogle. To track conversions, on the landing page set up a cookie. Then read the cookie in the order confirmation page and update the source as froogle in your database when the order is committed.
