Setting Up SmartView Page Tracking

Setting up SmartView page tracking involves enabling SmartView page transition tracking in the JavaScript tag and SmartView filters in a SmartView-compatible custom report, creating an Advanced SmartView profile, and tagging your website with the SmartView page transition META tag.

  1. Using the Tag Builder at tagbuilder.Webtrends.com, create a JavaScript tag that includes SmartView Transition Tracking. Implement the tag on your website after you set up your profile and report. For more information, search for “Implementing the JavaScript Tag on Your Web Pages” in Administration Help.
  2. Assign the SmartView custom report filters to the SmartView-compatible links reports you plan to use.
    1. In the left pane, click Web Analysis > Report Configuration > Custom Reports > Reports.
    2. You can copy a preconfigured links report or create a new links report.
    3. In the Filters dialog, select the Include check box for the SmartView Transition Source Page filter and the SmartView Transition Target Page filter.
    4. Click Save.
  3. Create an Advanced SmartView profile.
    1. Make sure that your modified links reports are enabled in your profile.
    2. Click Advanced > Reports.
    3. Select the Enabled check box to enable your modified link reports. Makes sure that you clear the Enabled check box for all link reports that do not use your SmartView filters.
  4. Tag your website with your JavaScript tag and the following META tag: <META NAME="SmartView_Page" CONTENT="1"> Add the META tag to the HEAD section of each web page that you want to track for SmartView. As a best practice, you should only tag a subset of pages for best performance and greater chances of having the pages that you tag available in your SmartView report.
    Note: If you later decide that you do not want to track a page for SmartView but want to preserve the tag for future use, edit the META tag and set the CONTENT value to 2. Otherwise, you can remove the tag from the page, and it is no longer tracked for SmartView.
