Missing Organic Visits metric

Feb 8, 2012 at 5:15 PM

Hey Tillmann,

I love this source - it will save us a lot of work!

However, it is missing at least one standard metric that we need: ga:organicSearches (Organic Searches, part of the Visit Source category).  Any chance of adding that?

Also, do you have any plans to move to version 3.0 of the API?  It is supposed to support discovery which should avoid issues like this one (and a few others I've seen in the discussions) with missing metrics and dimensions.

Thanks,

Matt

OK, I've found a work-around to the problem.  I can use the ga:medium dimension instead.  This actually allows me to break searches out by organic, paid, referral and direct entry, which is better.  Luckily I hadn't used up all of my 7 dimensions in the search so I can get away with this, but others may still need the ga:organicSearches metric as metrics are not as limited in number as the dimensions.

 

Thanks,

Matt
