Filter tracking allows you to track the usage of the filters within Google Analytics. This will give you the possibility to easily check the impact of your filters and take action in order to improve the filters being used in your shop.


Direct Integration: How to enable filter tracking


API-Integrations: How to enable filter tracking

  • As the filters are not rendered by FINDOLOGIC in API-integrations, you have to implement the filter tracking for your shop by yourself.
  • As a helper, we recommend following the following steps (as they may differ from one shop to another, they are being held rather general):
    • Set a click handler to the filter.
    • The click handler sends the used filter to Google Analytics.
    • If you are using a direct implementation of Google Analytics, you can use the following method:
ga('send', 'event', ..)
  • F.e. if the filter color=red is clicked in the search result page, use the following method:
ga('send', 'event', { 
  eventCategory: 'FINDOLOGIC Filter Click: Search', 
  eventAction: 'color',
  eventLabel: 'red'
  transport: 'beacon'
});
  • F.e. if the filter color=red is clicked in the navigation the method
ga('send', 'event', { 
  eventCategory: 'FINDOLOGIC Filter Click: Navigation', 
  eventAction: 'color',
  eventLabel: 'red'
  transport: 'beacon'
});
