Major bug problems with Google Analytics and how to fix them!
1. Tracking content is not devised properly
This problem has two common issues. First is content is implemented twice on the same pages and second is it’s missing completely from some pages. If your content is duplicate you will see a low bounce rate as every page is sending twice to Google Analytics.
How you can fix this bug issue? It’s highly recommended that you use Google Tag Manager across your entire site to ensure the tracking content is loaded with the right web property and at the right time during the page load.
2. The account is having lots of spamming bugs
Spam is a serious problem when it comes to website traffic and analytical setup. Your site gets affected by bugs particularly sent by spammers. Yes, folks, spammers send “ghost” referrals to get your attention as a website owner. And the traffic you see on your site might not come from the real people.
How to fix this issue? You can use Littledata’s app ‘Filters out all future spammers’ and pro reporting users benefit from having those filters updated often.
3. Your site not getting key events such as the purchase of click button
This problem happens when your site gets affected by the bug problem. Google Analytics only tracks views of a page by default which might not be meaningful if you have a highly engaging website.
