Display dynamic referrer URLs in Google Analytics

January 15, 2007

Reuben Yau tells us how to make Google Analytics report the full URL for dynamic referrers. In other words, the referrer will show up as /forums/showthread.php?t=1234 instead of /forums/showthread.php (which is more or less useless). This is a good trick if you use Google Analytics; lack of dynamic URL reporting was a major reason why I switched to Mint last year.
