google analytics – Malicious bot – mulitple cities and browsers

I have a very small website, in a very competitive niche, that may receive a 100 hits a day, mostly for long tail keywords in blog posts. Yesterday and today I have been receiving dozens of hits per hour for the home page, where normally I might only have 2-3 hits per day for the home page.

The hits spend less than 15 seconds on the page, use different browsers, versions, resolutions and cities and are all direct (i.e., no referrals). There doesn’t seem to be any common denominator to be able to identify or possibly block these hits.

From what I can determine, there’s no real harm being done, unless it’s simply to make my home page have a high bounce rate and negatively impact SEO.

Should I be concerned about these hits impacting SEO or is this some kind of penetration testing?

Filtering for any subdomain and excluding root domain traffic in Google Analytics

I’m trying to set up different views, one for the website root domain only and the other for all subdomains, excluding the root domain.

Subdomains are created on a client-by-client basis, so we add and remove them, so I’m looking for a catchall solution.

For the root domain traffic only filter, I want to double check if this would be correct:

^example.com$

To exclude root domain traffic and include only subdomain traffic, I figure I can apply two filters to teh view. One excluding ^example.com$ and the other including ^..example.com$?

Is that regex right?

Edit: Just realized this might be a dumb question. For the subdomain only filter I can just exclude ^..rootdomain.com$ right?

Google Analytics – Filter query – include subfolder / subdirectory

I am using CYFE app to view my Google Analytics.

I’d like to filter only traffic coming to my ‘blog’ subfolder. So I need to filter only traffic that comes to domain.com/blog

CYFE is asking to input the filter in the following query example: ga:country==United States

I’m trying to look through GA filters and docs to see if I can find a filter query to include only blog subfolder, but I just can’t seem to find anything like it.

What should I be putting in in this case?

event tracking – Using data-analytics-action within Analytics

I was going through stripe.com’s source code and noticed pretty much all their links have these attibutes:

data-analytics-action="" 
data-analytics-source="" 
data-convert-cta=""

Obviously these are used to track where the user is clicking from, however I can’t find any information how to use them within Google Analytics or another Analytics software.

How do I actually set something like this up?

Google analytics setup convention followed

We have to setup google analytics to different environments – stage and production for now.
Just wondering what is the right convention to follow. I am using google tag manager.

  1. Use tag manager and create multiple environments in the tag manager ? If I use this how do I filter my data from staging and production in the google analytics ?
  2. Filter the staging url views and create a new view only for the staging data ?

Thank you.
