Structure of Webtrekk / MAPP

The structure of this tracking tool differs from the familiar Google Analytics in terms of analysis modules and presentation.

In the navigation, one can create and edit segments within the “Managers” segment, among others. In the “Tag Integration” section, various specific parameters, rules or containers can be created for specific data collection methods. However, this will not be looked at in more detail in this blog post.
However, the area most frequently accessed by web analysts is “Intelligence”.

In the search box, you can enter the name of a URL or an event. The displayed metrics would then only be displayed for your specific search query.
It is important to mention that you have to type in the term completely. For example, if you want to search for the event “Klick_Teaser_home”, it would not be enough to type “click”. Only “Klick_Teaser_home” would give the exact result. There is also the possibility to type “click*”, but in this case all events starting with “click” would be displayed. This can also be very helpful under certain circumstances.
