Re: Working Google Analytics Page View Tracking Code

I guess I'm going to have to start blocking Google analytics at the router instead of at the web browser...

Re: Working Google Analytics Page View Tracking Code

Not to get into a philosophical discussion, but you do understand that every successful channel on the Roku uses a lot more than GA for tracking and many won't run if you block because they have to report usage data somehow (contractually required to do so). Crackle alone makes about seven analytic based requests when you hit Play and then continually pings back about every 30 seconds after that.

Also, this is a developer forum and what Trevor provided was a huge benefit to all independent developers out there. So he should be applauded for that.

You should also considering adding things like language (utmul variable) and hopefully as they roll into non-English countries they will start exposing this to us explicitly. It just makes it a little prettier when you log into GA.


Done, check out the v1.1 update on the first post in this thread. Smiley Very Happy

Re: UPDATE v2.0 Google Analytics Page View and Event Trackin

I integrated Universal Analytics instead which is much much easier than trying to piece together what Classic Analytics is expecting. Universal Analytics has a new Measurement Protocol that is specifically used for stuff like tracking third party application within code, like the Roku.

Re: UPDATE v2.0 Google Analytics Page View and Event Trackin

where in appVideoScreen.brs should I call the event using:
GATrackEvent("Page Title", "Page URL", "User Value", "EventCategory", "EventAction", "EventLabel", "EventValue")

so that it doesn't conflict with anything?
(still new to developing a channel)

thanks in advance

Re: UPDATE v2.0 Google Analytics Page View and Event Trackin

First off, I am very grateful that that tool was created. I have set up several GATrackEvent()'s. I put values into all 7 parameters. The only value that I can find in Google Analytics is the value that I used for "UserVal". It is called a "user defined value" in GA.

Where are the other values going? I have looked through GA and I can not find them anywhere. Do I have to set something up in GA so that these parameters are captured? What is the best way to organize this information so that it is meaningful? I could also use some more clarity on what these parameters mean inside of GA.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any answers or references to useful material.

Re: UPDATE v2.0 Google Analytics Page View and Event Trackin

Is this tracking function still available for download anywhere? The link in the first post seems to be dead.

Thanks,
