Google Analytics (Interaction Type)

Google Analytics is a service from Google that tracks visits to websites and allows you to analyze the data in order to improve your market effectiveness. The Google Analytics interaction allows you to add statistics from up to five custom variables from a BlueConic segment to the Google Analytics data. For complete information on using Google Analytics custom variables, see the Google documentation.

By default, the BlueConic Google Analytics interaction is not installed. To install it, add the following URL to your BlueConic plugins:
