How to track traffic from redirected domains using Google Analytics
Redirecting a bunch of domains and want to track the traffic from each domain using Google Analytics?
The solution is simple.
First go here:
And create a URL to your destination URL with UTM tags.
Now redirect traffic from the domain to this URL either using your domain registration provider’s URL redirection service or using an .htaccess redirect statement like:
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.destination-url.com/?utm_source=MyDomainName&utm_medium=domain&utm_campaign=MyDomain [R=301]
To test you can visit the redirected domain and immediately see the tracked result in Google Analytics.
First look at ACQUISITION > Campaigns > All Campaigns
Then change the date range to only your current date.
The Campaign name selected in the URL building above will show up.
