Google Analytics Certification Exam Sample Questions
This is a timed quiz. You will be given 60 seconds per question. Are you ready?
If a user visits the home page of a website with a video embedded and leaves without clicking on anything, Google Analytics will count this session as a bounce.
The term “Non-interaction” applies to the final, and optional, boolean parameter that can be passed to the method that sends the Event hit. This parameter allows you to determine how you want bounce rate defined for pages on your site that also include event tracking. For example, suppose you have a home page with a video embedded on it. It’s quite natural that you will want to know the bounce rate for your home page, but how do you want to define that? Do you consider visitor interaction with the home page video an important engagement signal? If so, you would want interaction with the video to be included in the bounce rate calculation, so that sessions including only your home page with clicks on the video are not calculated as bounces.
By default, when does an Analytics session expire?
Sessions and campaigns end after a specific amount of time passes. By default, sessions end after 30 minutes of inactivity and campaigns end after six months. You can change the settings so sessions and campaigns end after the specified amount of time has passed.
Which of these can be imported to define a remarketing audience?
By default, which of these is NOT considered a “source” in Google Analytics?

Where in the HTML of your webpage should you place your Analytics tracking code?

Filters may be applied retroactively to any data that has been processed.
You cannot change the default session timeout duration in Google Analytics.
A session is a group of interactions that take place on your website within a given time frame. By default, a session lasts until there’s 30 minutes of inactivity, but you can adjust this length so a session lasts a few seconds or several hours. A session can be as short as a few seconds or as long as several hours. A single user can open multiple sessions.
You can only apply a Custom Dimension to data that was collected after you created the dimension.
By default, when will Google Analytics NOT be able to identify sessions from the same user?
If a user watches a video with event tracking three times in a single session, Analytics will count how many Unique Events?

How would you reduce the time it takes to compile reports in Google Analytics?

Events are user interactions with content that can be tracked independently from a web page or a screen load.An Event has the following components. An Event hit includes a value for each component, and these values are displayed in your reports.
Which report indicates the last page users viewed before leaving your website?
The “Exit Pages” report under “Site Content” shows the pages where users left your site. Because you don’t want users exiting from important pages like a shopping cart checkout, it’s a good idea to periodically review this report to minimize unwanted exits.
What type of data does Google Analytics prohibit you from collecting?

Which of these user characteristics CANNOT be used to create a Custom Segment?
If a filter excludes data from a view, that data can never be recovered for that view.
Google recommend that you don’t delete or add filters to your original view. When you delete a view, that particular historical perspective of the data is gone. When you add filters to a view, the data you exclude is unavailable. To preserve all your original data and also control the specific perspectives of that data, create a copy of your original view or set up additional views and customize each one to meet your reporting goals.
