Analytics

You can configure BidJS to send tracking to your own Google Analytics account, as instructed in our Options document.

Dimensions#

info

Available in v4.0+

With all tracking we also send two further bits of information.

User UUID#

We track the user's UUID (unique identifier) for any tracking events where the user is logged in. This is recorded under the userId analytics dimension.

BidJS Version#

So that we're able to accurately measure what version clients and users are seeing, we also track the BidJS version being used. This is recorded under the dimension1 Custom Dimension.

To see this within your own analytics information you will need to create a Custom Dimension, and ensure it is at index 1.

Page Navigation#

As standard, we'll send any Page Navigation events to Google Analytics. Page navigation is when the main part of the URL changes.

Certain Events are also tracked, which do not cause a page change, nor are they modal opens.

Google Analytics Events follow the format: (Category, Label, Action, Value).

All Events contain Category and Label, whilst some also contain Action, and a few contain Value (which must be a number).
