The category page and subcategory page has the main topic in the URL, but for the 1000s of article pages the main topic is not in the URL so I can’t track article pages to tie it into what main category it came from. The articles are just domain.com/headline-of-article.
I have ads on the pages, so if a manager asks for a report for pageviews for an ad that showed up on a category page + subcategory page + related article page (without the main topic in the URL) how would I go about doing this?
I know Google Analytics has goal funnels, but of course there is a limit and I can’t keep creating thousands of funnels especially when new content for articles are being produced every day.
Omniture SiteCatalyst / Adobe Analytics could probably track funnels without me having to create each funnel, but this is very expensive.
Is there a way to automatically track ads showing up on a page starting from the main category > Subcategory > articles (that don’t have the main category in the URL) using other software or tagging system? Maybe there is a way to do it in the free version of Google Analytics, but I’m not sure?
Any help with this would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!!
