Recently I had a chance to work on Google Analytics API integration with Asp.net application.
I searched a lot through the internet but I was not satisfied with the result and finally after doing lots of R&D and taking ideas and collecting information from different sites I decided to put that kind of code under one roof. So here is the code for those who want GA data in their application.
You must have a Google account to login to let Google track your web site visits and traffics [such a kind of job has been handled by SEO team for the page ranking procedure].
Instead of taking much time I am directly shifting to coding part for the same. Just start with the initial code snippet.
// set username and password of your google analytics account account.
string userName = "";
string passWord = "";
const string dataFeedUrl = "https://www.google.com/analytics/feeds/data";
AccountQuery query = new AccountQuery();
AnalyticsService service = new AnalyticsService("AnalyticsSampleApp");
string str = "";
AccountFeed accountFeed = service.Query(query);
foreach (AccountEntry entry in accountFeed.Entries)
str = entry.ProfileId.Value;
Once you get through with GA credential process you can start doing your stuff.
The following code snippet helps you to get the total number of visits of your site; you can set the date range to retrieve the data in-between.
DataQuery query1 = new DataQuery(dataFeedUrl);
query1.Ids = str;
query1.Metrics = "ga:visits";
query1.Sort = "ga:visits";
query1.GAStartDate = DateTime.Now.AddMonths(-1).AddDays(-2).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd");
query1.GAEndDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-3).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd");
query1.StartIndex = 1;
DataFeed dataFeedVisits = service.Query(query1);
foreach (DataEntry entry in dataFeedVisits.Entries)
string st = entry.Title.Text;
string ss = entry.Metrics.Value;
_intVisists = Int32.Parse(ss);
Response.Write("Total Visits : " + ss);
This is the output for your kind consideration that I have tested for my site.
