Tracking Subdomains and Subdirectories

Some web sites host many user’s content on one web site. There are multiple ways to do this. For example Tumblr uses Subdomains (i.e. http://username.tumblr.com) whereas Twitter uses subdirectories (i.e. http://www.twitter.com/username). Woopra can track subdomains by either combining all their statistics with the main domain or keeping each subdomain’s statistics separate. Woopra can only track subdirectories with combined statistics, they can’t be tracked separately. Below, there are instructions for setting up your subdomains by the two different methods described above.

Separate Statistics (Subdomains Only)

To track subdomains so that their statistics are not combined, you simply add the subdomains as separate websites on the Woopra Member’s Page. Once the separate subdomains have all been entered into Woopra Member’s Page, choose the Setup button to the right to get the appropriate JavaScript for each subdomain. The image below shows what your Member’s area should look like if you want Woopra to track each subdomain separately.

Note That each subdomain will have a unique JavaScript. You must use the appropriate JavaScript for each subdomain in order for Woopra to properly track them.

Combined Statistics (Subdomains and Subdirectories)

To track subdomains and subdirectories so that their statistics are combined, do not add the subdomains to Woopra Member’s Page. Instead, just add the main domain to the Woopra Member’s Page. Then choose the Setup button to the right of the main domain. This will give you the JavaScript for your main page. Copy this JavaScript into every page on the main domain and every page of every subdomain and subdirectory. After you do this, Woopra will track all activity on all pages on all subdomains and subdirectories and present them to you combined.
