Hi all,

 

We are currently working on an integration between Google Analytics and Marketo. We encountered unfortunately the problem that we have both subdomains (www.site.com and info.site.com) and subdirectories (www.site.com/de, www.site.com/en) what leads to the problem that goal conversions (specified as thank you pages of certain downloads) are not measured correctly per subdirectory.

 

For this we are thinking about a solution where we would have 1 primary UA-tracking code (UA-XXXXX-1) for the main domain and subdomain (www.site.com and info.site.com). Of course we will exclude the subdirectories from this because we will give them all separate UA-tracking codes:

 

(UA-XXXXX-2) for www.site.com/de

(UA-XXXXX-3) for www.site.com/en

etc.

 

With Google Tag Manager we will fire both the UA tracking codes for the primary domain (UA-XXXXX-1) and the related subdirectory (UA-XXXXX-2, when a person is visiting the www.site.com/de). Example of how we will set this up is http://marketlytics.com/adding-multiple-google-analytics-tracking-codes-to-webpage/

 

Will this be possible and will this have no consequences for all tracking data?

 

If I have to provide more information please let me know!
