2,600% Goal1 Conversion Rate. What am I doing wrong? Jorge_N 5/7/12 1:32 AM
Hi all,
I am using GA since a year, but as I set up a new account, I see that we had, e.g. on the page /productX 2 visits, 100% Bounce Rate but 2,600% Goal completion Rate for one of my goals.
The Goal was defined as follows: 

Goal Name
Quote
Goal Type
URL Destination

Goal Details
Goal URL /view/content/quote?quotesuccess=true

Match Type
Exact Match


Goal Value 
100
Goal Funnel
Step 1 /view/content/quote
Step 2 /view/content/quote?noerrors=true
Step 3 /view/content/quote?quotesuccess=true


What am I dong wrong here?

I think what you will find is happening is due to the similarities in the urls, anyone that hits Step1 is showing as a conversion

I'm not great with regex's but You may be better to change to regex as the match type and enter in the urls as follows:

Goal Funnel
Step 1 /view/content/quote$
Step 2 /view/content/quote\?noerrors\=true$
Step 3 /view/content/quote\?quotesuccess\=true$

Thanks for your answer, Whims. I would've never come up with that idea.

I just changed the funnel, but nothing changed, yet: will the Funnel data I collected in the past also be updated?

Thnaks for all.!
