This week our client, Green Mountain at Fox Run, wrote to us to try to understand why when running reports in Google Analytics they were seeing duplicate URL’s with the only difference being one included ?fb_xd_fragment= at the end of it.
Typically this happens when you have Facebook social widgets, such as the Like button, on your site.
Preventing these from appearing in Google Analytics is actually pretty easy.
In the beginning of May Google announced that you would now be able to monitor page load time in the new version of Google Analytics. You will now have the ability to see which pages are loading the slowest and you can even break it down to what browsers load the slowest and what parts of the World load the slowest.
The first thing you need to do to be able to measure load time is to make a slight modification to your Google Analytics pixel.
