Gathering Information

Ensuring that Google Analytics is tracking user behavior correctly is critical to the success of running a BigCommerce site. There are many insights that can be gleaned from nowhere other than Analytics when setup correctly. Here's a few examples:

  • Landing Pages - Do you know which pages are actually making the most money? It is often not the product page as many people mistakenly think, it could be a Category, Brand, Blog or Web Page that is leading traffic to your site that results in sales further down the "Sales Funnel". Without Ecommerce tracking, your "in the dark", relying only on traffic (not revenue) data to inform your decisions
  • Internal Site Search - This can give some great clues as to how you should change your site to better serve your customers
  • Checkout Funnel Visualization - Are you aware of where people are leaving the checkout process? - this information can allow you to plug holes in leaky checkouts
  • Missing Pages - Are people hitting your 404 page? Finding out, and fixing the cause might save you $1,000's in lost revenue
  • Corrupt Data - Some configuration (such as the default page setting & filters) can corrupt the data within Google Analytics, making it difficult or impossible to recover useful information

Our Analytics Package covers the following:

Basic Configuration Checks

  • Property/View URLs - Are they correct & consistent for accurate reporting
  • Default Page - Can cause data corruption if incorrect
  • Time Zone, Currency, Industry Category - are these correct
  • Bot Filtering - Ensuring Bots are not included in traffic data
  • Bounce Rate - Too high/low can be a symptom of tracking issues
  • Mobile Users - Does it seem consistent for your industry, if not, there could be a theme issue

Code Errors

As we work, we are always on the lookout for any errors that may impact the success of your site. We report on JavaScript, Browser and GA errors discovered. If applicable, we offer advice on solutions to these.

AMP Tracking

Using AMP Pages? We configure Analytics to track AMP pages appropriately. Generally we track them on the same ID and use segments to analyse separately. This offers the best of both worlds, being able to combine or separate your page variants (AMP/Non-AMP) with ease. We also check & advise on a common BigCommerce AMP bug that causes many mobile users to be unable to add to cart!
