Implementing Google Analytics cross domain tracking if you're seeing the referral of the event as self referral
If you're seeing your own domain name as a source referral to these appointments in Google Analytics, then you need to implement cross domain tracking on your side.
Cross domain tracking allows Google Analytics to keep the main source referral of the visit through the entire booking process so you can generate true reporting on where these conversions came from.
So for example:
Domain A is a blogger that wrote about your service or is a website that you're advertising on.
Domain B is your own domain.
Domain C is your setster booking widget domain.
If a user lands on domain A and clicks on a link to go to your own domain (Domain B) then uses the Setster booking widget to book an appointment, Google Analytics shows this as a referral from Domain B, and not Domain A.
To keep the referral in tact, you need to implement the following steps:
1. Set up Referral Exclusions in Google Analytics for your own domain name. Please see this article for help.
2. Change the Google Analytics code on all the pages that you have the Setster widget added to the attached Google Analytics code in the file below.
Once both of these is set, you should start seeing the true referral of appointments that are booked in the future.
Please note that some older browsers do not support Google Analytics cross domain tracking, thus some self referrals may still show. This is not something we are in control over, since this is Google's technology and older browsers do not support it.
