This is the 16th lesson video from my course The Exact Process For Setting Up Google Analytics – https://www.thequantifiedweb.com/exactga.
I decided to post the videos from the lessons publicly, but I encourage you to log into the course because from within the course you can access the written notes and the checklists, plus access my special offer. The course is completely free to register 🙂
In earlier lessons, I taught you how to create various filters for Google Analytics to reduce spam and abnormalities and make your page view counts accurate. The problem with adding pageview filters is that if you have any hardcoded URLs in your goals settings, these filters might break your goals.
In this lesson, you’ll be learning about how to find these goal settings in Google Analytics and then update them so that you can be confident they are accurate and that your goals will keep working after you add new filters and settings.

If you liked this video and want to find the next one, look out for How To Create Initial Engagement Goals in Google Analytics. Many people don’t have any goals at all, and so adding these quick engagement goals will let you know whether your visitors are engaging with your content – or not. Even if you’ve already got some goals you should find these helpful.
You might also want to look out for the article How To Copy Goals to Another View in Google Analytics which shows you how to share your goals with all the other views that you choose. This is very helpful if you add new goals and you have more than one view in Google Analytics because it can be quite time consuming adding new goals manually.
