Setting Up URL Parameter Analysis for Basic Analysis

Each URL Parameter Analysis report can track either one or two specified parameters to show which content visitors requested.

To create a URL Parameter Analysis report, specify the parameter(s) you want Webtrendsto report for each Basic Analysis profile and make sure your template includes URL Parameter Analysis reports.
  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Web Analysis > Reports & Profiles.
  2. Add or edit a Parent-Child Basic Analysis profile.
  3. In the URL Parameters dialog, specify the one or two query parameters and the report settings you want to use.
  4. In the left pane, click Web Analysis > Report Designer > Templates and edit the template for each profile. On the Content dialog, make sure that the URL Parameter Analysis and URL 2-D Parameter Analysis folders are included in the template. If they are not, click Add Report and select these folders under Site Design. During analysis, these folders are populated with any URL Parameter Analysis reports you configured.
    Note: The Basic Analysis Complete View templates include both 1-D and 2-D URL Parameter Analysis reports by default.
  5. If your parameter values are encoded or hard to understand, you can create a Webtrendsplug-in that translates the parameter into more meaningful text for Webtrendsto show in reports.
