Hello world!

Welcome to this humble Google Analytics testing site.

Here, I’ve created pages and posts for testing everything from custom dimensions to WooCommerce purchases to YouTube video tracking.

You can experience first-hand how Google Analytics works with WordPress by going through this site. I highly recommend you have your Google Analytics debugger or Omnibug active while you do.

This site is a caught my eye production.


A good photograph will prove to the viewer how little our eyes permit us to see.

Which treats of the first sally the ingenious Don Quixote made from home

These preliminaries settled, he did not care to put off any longer the execution of his design, urged on to it by the thought of all the world was losing by his delay, seeing what wrongs he intended to right, grievances to redress, injustices to repair, abuses to remove, and duties to discharge.

How to Find Your Top Post Categories

Create Your Custom Dimension First

I track my blog posts using custom reports based on a category custom dimension. For example:

ga("set", "dimension1", "editorial,photography,travel")

This custom dimension is the crux for tracking your WordPress post categories.

Post Category Custom Reports

Here’s my all categories custom report.

All Categories GA Custom Report

Here’s my editorial category report.

Editorial Category GA Custom Report

Setting up Your Custom Report using a Regex

In the report above, I use a regex filter to single out one category. The regex takes into account that multiple categories are possible for a single post. Here’s the custom report definition for the editorial category only.

Editorial Category GA Custom Report Definition

So, assuming you have at least one category set for all your blog posts, this should work for you too.

Shared on the Google Analytics Solutions Gallery

I posted my custom report examples to the Google Analytics Solutions Gallery.

So if you need to quick start, import my template and enjoy πŸ˜‰
