Analytics app + analytics on webpage


#1

Hi.
I have added the google analytics code into my website.
I also have the cloudflare google analytics app installed.

Will they interfere with each other?

I think that Google may automatically dedupe stats from the same page (if same tracker is used) but not positive. Would have to check with Google to confirm. Should be easy to test if you toggle the Cloudflare App on and off.

No.

Just the opposite GA and the Cloudflare Google Analytics App will work better together.

If you already have GA snippets on your domain when
you enable the CF-GA App; you’ll notice much more accuracy.

While testing, we disabled the CF-GA App and as soon
as we did the “Real Time” analytics got sloppy.

The next and following days with the CF-GA App disabled
the metrics dropped off by 40%.

About two weeks later we re-enabled the GA App and
within 48 hours we got back to the original baseline with
both working together.

Even with Cloudflare and Google Analytics App
working together. We still need to continue to keep GA snippets on our pages.

When we removed some snippets, our bounce rate went up.
My team members found that uncomfortable.
Personally, I find that bounce rate is relative to the snippets, rather than the actual visitor metrics (compared to raw logs).
