Google Analytics Referrer

Example output of the moduleExample output of the module

Lightweight, scalable, no-nonsense, enable-and-forget collector of referrers for all pages on your site, drawing on data collected by Google Analytics. Hardly any load on your server, no negative impact on the user. Highly customizable. Suitable even for large and high-traffic sites.

Installing is a breeze -- authenticate to Google Analytics (see instructions below) and review the default settings (which should be fine in most cases). And make sure your cron is running. You can check the stats retrieval progress at /admin/config/system/google_analytics_referrer/details!





In case of troubles with the OAuth2 authentication it helps to reset its variables and try again. You can use a settings reset link at /admin/config/system/google_analytics_referrer/dashboard.

Spelling note

Yes, I know the spelling of "referer" in the project name is wrong! The field in the HTTP header has the correct number of Rs indeed (see this). I chose the 4R version just because the Google Analytics calls referers referrers; the relevant dimension is called "ga:referrer". Sorry :-)


A good idea, anybody?
