The getAndPersistValue plug-in obtains a value of your choosing and populates it into a Analytics variable for a determined period. A common use is to see how many page views a campaign generates after a click-through, which enables you to easily see the most common pages for each campaign.
For example, you might use this plug-in to set a campaign tracking code from the campaign variable into a Custom Traffic (s.prop) variable on each visitor's page view made for the next 30 days. This example lets you determine how many page views the tracking code generated as a result of the original click-through.
CONFIG SECTION: No changes required for this section.
Place the following code within the s_doPlugins() function, which is located in the area of the s_code.js file labeled Plugin Config. Choose one Custom Traffic (s.prop) variable or one Custom Conversion (s.eVar) variable for use in capturing persisted value data. This should be a variable that has been enabled using the Admin Console, but which is not currently in use for any other purpose. You can use the following example and update it based on your requirements.
s.getAndPersistValue has three arguments:
PLUGINS SECTION: Add the following code to the area of the s_code.js file labeled PLUGINS SECTION. Do not make any changes to this portion of the plug-in code.
/* * Plugin: getAndPersistValue 0.3 - get a value on every page */ s.getAndPersistValue=new Function("v","c","e","" +"var s=this,a=new Date;e=e?e:0;a.setTime(a.getTime()+e*86400000);if(" +"v)s.c_w(c,v,e?a:0);return s.c_r(c);");
Always test plug-in installations extensively to ensure that data collection is as expected before deploying in a production environment.
