Google Analytics Report Enhancer

June 26, 2008

UPDATE: You can read about the most recent updates to the GAREnhancer here, but the same script is available from both this post and the new one.

It's HandyA few weeks ago, Shawn wrote an article on true time on site and how you can calculate it. You may also know that for a while, Google Analytics actually calculated time on site using this method before reverting back to the calculation method used now.Several weeks ago I came out with an article on a Greasemonkey script I'd written which added several segments to the usual segment drop down.

I'm about to tie all of these together.

Introducing, the Google Analytics Report Enhancer!

Clicking on the above image will reveal the new Goal Conversion tab, now with raw number of conversions for each goal as well as goal revenue. If seeing that image has convinced you that you need this script right now, you can get it right here. If for some reason you do not already have Greasemonkey installed on your firefox browser, you should get that first right here.

Now next to Avg. Time on Site you have True Time on Site.

I've also modified the entrance sources and entrance keywords report to include a column for approximate visits. If you've ever looked as these reports, they are rather difficult to interpret. This column helps give them some additional context. Depending on the amount of interest this generates, I may modify some of the help texts to clarify what the columns of this report actually represent.

These columns are also sortable, though only within the displayed rows. If you play around with this a while, you'll get a feel for how it works.

This script also includes the latest version of the modified segment drop-down, complete with the following segments:

A. Source/Medium
B. Referral Path
C. Transaction
D. Affiliation
E. Ad Group
F. Search Term
G. Site Search Category
H. Second Page
I. Exit Page
J. Browser and OS
K. Browser Version
L. Operating System Version

I'd also like to mention John at Lunemetrics' script that automatically shows all profiles in the Analytics Settings interface. All credit for the idea goes to him, but I've included a version of the script that eliminates the redirects.

As noted in the Updates, there are some situations where my script is not able to automatically show all profiles. There is no conflict that I'm aware of between my script and John's, so I would recommend having both.

I'm looking to develop this script further, so if you have any suggestions for improvement, additional columns you might like to see added to a report, general Google Analytics Interface enhancements that this script has made you think, "Hey, I wonder if that's possible?" please leave a comment. You can report any bugs with the script here as well, even something as simple as, "That ought to be formatted differently," or "Seems a bit slow under such and such a conditions." I want this script to be as handy as possible.

That's awesome, but I get an error saying "banana is undefined" when I try to use new segments or goal tab. I hope you'll be able to get it fixed!

@Alex: What version of firefox are you using? If it's firefox 3 then there may be some updates that I'll need to make to the script.

@Jeremy: correct, it's FF 3.

@Alex: Thanks! When I have the script working for FF3, I'll post an update. It may be a while since currently FF3 keeps crashing on me.

Nice add-ons, can't wait until it works in FF3. Maybe you can implement my column sorter in it as an extra enhancement?

The feature to show 100 profiles instead of 10 works well with profiles, but, unlike lunametrics' script, not with filters. Do you plan to add this feature in your script?

July 1, 2008 3:46 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Alex: I did not even realize that John's script did that. I can certainly see about adding that to the script. Thanks for pointing that out!

How can we also export to pdf including your extra cols? exported pdf only includes the vanilla cols.

@Soeren: The script should work with both of those segments. What report are these not working for?

July 7, 2008 9:18 AM

A quick suggestion: it would be nice to see the metric "true time on site" in the drop down list from charts views (pie/bar/comparison)...

July 16, 2008 8:25 AM

Josh Chambers said:

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

July 29, 2008 2:18 PM

Dave Cardwell said:

Another great tool - thanks for making this freely available.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

July 30, 2008 11:46 AM

Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

Joeri Blok said:

The Report Enhancer doesn't work for me. It still only gives percentages.

Does anybody know why? Or has the plugin stopped working?

Thanks in advance!

May 22, 2009 5:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

The Gare link just gives a page of code.

What exactly are we supposed to do with it?

Where does it go?

How do we get it "into Firefox"

July 22, 2009 5:28 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

Hi Jeremy,

Is it possible to increase the number of previous & next page in Navigation Summary report of GA. It would be also great if you can give me some reference on this issue. Regards, Arijit

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

For more information about using the limit parameter in general, click here.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Another great tool - thanks for making this freely available.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

Hi Jeremy,

Is it possible to increase the number of previous & next page in Navigation Summary report of GA. It would be also great if you can give me some reference on this issue. Regards, Arijit

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

For more information about using the limit parameter in general, click here.

Hi Jeremy,

Is it possible to increase the number of previous & next page in Navigation Summary report of GA. It would be also great if you can give me some reference on this issue. Regards, Arijit

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

The Report Enhancer doesn't work for me. It still only gives percentages.

Does anybody know why? Or has the plugin stopped working?

Thanks in advance!

May 22, 2009 5:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

October 23, 2008 11:43 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Diseno: Currently English is the only supported language. I haven't found a good way yet to make the script work across all languages, so I probably have to build it out one language at a time. This is something I'll definitely be looking to do in the hopefully not too distant future.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

July 22, 2009 5:28 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

I also like to thank you for this script. I tried to tweak it to suit my language (Finnish) but my basic Java knowledge could not carry me that far.

Is it easily done? Support for other language interfaces? I found out that when I replaced one column name in the script I got the extra columns visible, but the numbers were all NaN.

August 19, 2008 3:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Antti: Thanks for the feedback. I will try to update the script so that it's easier to change it for other languages. As you've noticed, it's not very easy to do that right now. I will also look into potential solutions that will make this script compatible for all language interfaces.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

For more information about using the limit parameter in general, click here.

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

May 22, 2009 5:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

May 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

Hi Jeremy,

Is it possible to increase the number of previous & next page in Navigation Summary report of GA. It would be also great if you can give me some reference on this issue. Regards, Arijit

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Gavin Doolan said:

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

Hi Jeremy
I've just read your GAAC post on this in the thread "Website URL under Profile Settings" and came here immediately.
This seems wicked.

And Andres - I think we should name you the 3M man because you're always making things better :)

Hi, I try to use in Google Analytics in Spanish but don't work.

Do you have a script for Google Analytics in Spanish?

October 23, 2008 11:43 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Diseno: Currently English is the only supported language. I haven't found a good way yet to make the script work across all languages, so I probably have to build it out one language at a time. This is something I'll definitely be looking to do in the hopefully not too distant future.

Hi,
Just wondering if this script is still relevant now that Google Analytics has Custom Reporting / Advanced Segmentation available?

Also, I don't think the article mentioned the difference between average time on site and true time on site?

How is true time on site calculated?

Thanks alot.

November 7, 2008 11:21 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Gavin: This script is still useful for a number of reasons:

1. There are currently a lot of restrictions on custom reports that will not allow you to combine certain dimensions and metrics. Using this script, you can see dimensions that otherwise wouldn't be available.
2. While you can create a custom report that has goal completions, and overall goal conversion rate, currently individual goal conversion rate is not available.
3. Advanced segments will let you see up to 4 segments simultaneously, which may or may not cover all the available segments that can be seen when segmenting normally, especially when that normal segmenting is enhanced with the script.
4. The latest version of the Google Analytics Report Enhancer takes care of a lot of other little annoyances in addition to what you see in this article.

Eventually, though, this script will probably be fairly worthless as Google Analytics continues to develop. Until then, I will continue to update this script as time allows to make the overall user experience better.

The true time on site concept comes from an earlier post by Shawn, linked to at the start of this post and right here in this comment.

The Report Enhancer doesn't work for me. It still only gives percentages.

Does anybody know why? Or has the plugin stopped working?

Thanks in advance!

May 22, 2009 5:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Joeri: I checked it just now and it seems to work fine. You should try downloading the latest version and see if that resolves the issue.

Also note that you can now get raw conversion numbers using custom reports. You'll have to build out custom reports for all of your favorite dimensions to get the same data as the Report Enhancer, but it can be done.

Cindy Dadon said:

This is a great add-on.
The "True Time On Site" column is not persistent though, which causes havoc for deep dive analysis

So for instance if you toggle from the "site usage" tab to the "goal conversion" tab and back to the "site usage" tab you will lose the column. The only solution i have found is to click on "Referring Sites" and reload the report.

Wish this could be fixed!! True time on site should be shown anywhere, everywhere.

June 9, 2009 5:53 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Cindy: I would try downloading the script again. The script tends to break fairly often due to frequent interface updates from Google, but when I checked just now, the True Time on Site column was seemed persistent, even after switching between Site Usage, Goal Conversion, and Ecommerce tabs multiple times.

The Gare link just gives a page of code.

What exactly are we supposed to do with it?

Where does it go?

How do we get it "into Firefox"

July 22, 2009 5:28 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Mark: You'll need to install GreaseMonkey first in order to get the script to work. You'll most likely need to restart Firefox after installing GreaseMonkey. You shuld then be able to install GARE. Make sure to choose the install option rather than the show script option.

Hi Jeremy,

Is it possible to increase the number of previous & next page in Navigation Summary report of GA. It would be also great if you can give me some reference on this issue. Regards, Arijit

November 26, 2009 1:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Arijit: I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this within the interface, but it is possible to increase the number of previous and next pages in the export. You can do this by making some changes to the URL in the address bar.

First, remove any anchor text (that's everything after and include the # symbol).

Second, add the following at the very end of the URL:

&limit=50000

You could use a number less than 50000 if you wanted to, but 50,000 is the highest number you can set this to.

3rd, after hitting enter, export the report to CSV. The export should now include more than 10 rows for previous and next entries.

For more information about using the limit parameter in general, click here.

The feature to show 100 profiles instead of 10 works well with profiles, but, unlike lunametrics' script, not with filters. Do you plan to add this feature in your script?

Josh Chambers said:

Hey Alex. Awesome script! Thanks for doing this and letting us use it.

Would it ever be possible to explain in more detail what a few of these additional columns are and how they work? "Second Page" comes to mind...I'm not sure if I'm using that properly...not to mention 80% are listed as "not set." Also, "Affiliation?"

Thanks!

July 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Josh: Second page refers to the second page of the visit. For 1 page visits, this is "not set", so the percentage of "not set's" should be equal to the bounce rate. Affiliation refers to the optional field in ecommerce. For sites with multiple domains, you can put the domain name in the affiliation field and then see revenue by domain whenever you segment by affiliation. Note that segmenting by hostname often does not work for this purpose as many transactions are registered under a "not set" domain.

Dave Cardwell said:

Another great tool - thanks for making this freely available.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feature requests, but if you are may I suggest adding a column next to "% New Visits" showing what this translates to in real numbers. I often find myself wanting to sort by this figure.

July 30, 2008 11:46 AM

I also like to thank you for this script. I tried to tweak it to suit my language (Finnish) but my basic Java knowledge could not carry me that far.

Is it easily done? Support for other language interfaces? I found out that when I replaced one column name in the script I got the extra columns visible, but the numbers were all NaN.

August 19, 2008 3:57 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Antti: Thanks for the feedback. I will try to update the script so that it's easier to change it for other languages. As you've noticed, it's not very easy to do that right now. I will also look into potential solutions that will make this script compatible for all language interfaces.

My 'segment' menu enhancement seems to have stopped working.

I think Google have changed the interface and renamed that menu as 'dimension'. Maybe that's causing a problem?
