Widgets - Cross-Domain Analytics

If you've entered your Google Analytics or Facebook Tracking Pixel in your account settings, widgets will be tracked in addition to other events like quotes and bookings.

You can find more details on connecting Google Analytics and what is tracked in our Tracking guest interactions through Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel article.

Here's how to enable cross-domain tracking for pages that embed your widgets.  This allows you to connect the Google Analytics tracker on your surrounding page with the widget's Google Analytics user, and attribute bookings to specific channels according to how they landed on the website (e.g. Paid Google Ads, organic search, social, direct traffic, etc.).

To do that, you have to configure Google Analytics to "decorate" the widget URLs to pass the user across to our domain. Here's how to do that: 

1) Before the OwnerRez widget.js <script> tag on your page, turn off the default widget loading using the following javascript somewhere in your page's script:

window.OwnerRez = { skipLoadDefaultWidgets: true };

2) After Google Analytics is loaded on the page, call the OwnerRez.loadDefaultWidgets(tracker) function and pass in the Google Analytics tracker reference. If you're using the default tracking code, it will look something like this:

ga(function(tracker) {
  window.OwnerRez.loadDefaultWidgets(tracker);
});

Here's a simple example page to demonstrate, using a GA ID of U-12345690-1 and an OwnerRez widget id of f895831f-a106-4f7f-ad6b-9ae3a382890f -- substitute those values with the values of your GA tracker and OwnerRez widget code...

<html>
<head>
<script>
// disable OwnerRez's automatic widget loading
window.OwnerRez = { skipLoadDefaultWidgets: true };

// standard GA script
window.ga=window.ga||function(){(ga.q=ga.q||[]).push(arguments)};ga.l=+new Date;
ga('create', 'U-12345690-1', 'auto', { 'allowLinker': true });
ga('send', 'pageview');
</script>
<script async src='//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js'></script>
</head>
<body>
