Create a Branded or Non-Branded Google Analytics Filter
One of the most frequent question we’ve been having since the launch of the new version is how to create a KPI to show branded or non-branded performance. This could be use for a Leads KPI as well as a Visits, Bounce Rate, Transactions or any metric you have in mind.

This can be done using Google Analytics API filters and our Advanced KPI Editor It’s quite simple actually.

Or for Paid Search
We can even create branded and non-branded queries within the same KPI (see below). This one is custom work at this time. Contact us for more information.
