Consider OTT or “over the top” apps like Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV, for example. Many of these platforms can be configured for iOS or Android, for example, which Firebase supports. But if you’re working with Roku or Adobe AIR, for example, I’m not sure how much luck you’ll have.

So we do the event. We set it to a Custom category group, we define the action as PageLoad because a user isn’t specifically interacting with this event. Then we set the Label as to what the event is doing. We add a 0 to the value (you don’t have to add an actual value there if we’re not using it, but I’m personally uncomfortable passing nothing).

Prepend Hostname to Request URI This filter is especially important if you are implementing a cross-domain tracking system. It would add the hostname to the beginning of the Request URI for every pageview hit, and then overwrite the Request URI with this new format. After applying this filter if you navigate to your Cross-Domain View, in All Pages report, you will have all pages with their corresponding hostnames. … [Read more...] about Basic Google Analytics Filters for Every Site
