  • Calculating the Percentage of xyz Event in Comparison to Page View Event in GA4

    Posted by Noah on 24 September 2022 at 8:16 am

    Hey folks,

    Just to clarify, I have this “xyz” event that pops up during some “page_view” events. I’ve been trying to figure out what percentage of the time it happens. Like, say we had 100 page_view events and 50 of ’em had the “xyz” happen. That’d be a 50% incidence, yeah?

    I’ve done a fair bit of experimenting with different methods (think Google Tag Manager with Google Analytics 4 reports or – another one – Google Data Studio), but so far, no dice. I just can’t seem to get a fix on exactly how often this event is happening in relation to pageviews.

    I’d appreciate any pointers or suggestions you might have. Thanks in advance!

    Sure, analysing how often your “xyz” event occurs in relation to “page_view” events should be fairly straightforward with Google Analytics 4 or Google Data Studio. You’d want to calculate the ratio of “xyz” events to “page_view” events as a percentage. If you’re struggling with this, it could mean there’s a tracking issue or the numbers have not been set up to correlate correctly. Try double-checking your tracking settings and maybe seek some expert insight on setting up the metrics in Google Analytics 4 or Google Data Studio if the problem persists.

    It sounds like you’re on the right track, trying to find the event frequency as a percentage of the total views. The “xyz” event might not be captured correctly, or there could be an issue in how you’re setting up your Google Analytics 4 or Google Data Studio. You should ensure your tracking tag for the “xyz” event is installed correctly and working as expected. You might need to refine your filters or create a new report that focuses specifically on “xyz” and “page_view” events to get the clear picture you’re after. Google’s online help resources or forums could also provide some valuable guidance. You might even need to consult with a data analyst or a specialist in Google’s tools if you’re still having trouble.
