How Can I Get Detailed Statistics on Who is Viewing My Booth, Items, and Profile?
If you're a Bonanza pro subscribers, you can use Google Analytics to get a highly detailed picture of who is viewing your booth and items, when they are being viewed, where they are coming from, and more. Here's how to get it working:
- Sign up for a Google Analytics account, if you haven't already.
- Get your Google Analytics tracking code number. Note that you don't need the entire block of code that Google gives you for tracking, just the account identifier. In the block of code Google gives you, there is a line that reads something like: "_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-1234567-8']);" You need to grab the "UA-1234567-8" part of the tracking code (minus the quotation marks, don't grab them!). This is your account identifier.
Sign in, then go to Sell on Bonanza -> Edit booth options.
- Paste the tracking code you got from Google into the field that requests your Google Analytics tracking code (it's near the bottom).
- Click the "Save all of my changes" button at the bottom of the Basic Settings page.
Within a few hours, you should be able to log into your Google Analytics account and see your detailed stats. Note that Google usually has a delay of a few hours between when the pages are viewed and when those views are reflected in your Google Analytics stats.
If you're not a subscribing member, you can use our rudimentary item statistics instead. These can provide some baseline details about how many people are seeing your items.
