Have you ever wondered that Google Analytics displays www.abc.com/ and www.abc.com/index.html even though they both are same, they show up as two separate entries in your reports. You can use this setting to configure Analytics to treat them as the same page by defining the Default page for your site:
If you find these pages reported differently in analytics, only then you will use this settting.
- Navigate to the desired account, property, and view.
- In the VIEW column, click View Settings.
- In the Default page field, enter the
default page for this domain. This is the page that loads when a user
enters only the domain of your site into their address bar. For example,
if www.example.com loads your index.html web page, enter
index.htmlin this field.
- Click Apply.
This also works at the subdirectory level. In other words, once you have
index.html as the
default page, Analytics also treats example.com/subdir/ and example.com/subdir/index.html
as the same page.
