How to enable filter tracking

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.

  • As the filters are not rendered by Findologic, 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.
    • The following snippets might help you to implement the tracking in your API/Plugin integration:
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'
For Direct integrations the data is sent out of the box to Google Analytics as soon as the connection is working correctly.
