Analytics - Using Omniture/Adobe Marketing Cloud

Omniture SiteCatalyst is one of the mag+ analytics options. To use Omniture you must have a paid account with them.

Important Information about Omniture

  • As of mag+ v4.0, we only support Omniture SiteCatalyst 15.
  • As of mag+ v4.04, we support offline tracking, but it must be enabled both within your Omniture report suite as well as in the mag+ Publish portal under Apps > Analytics Configuration — there you will see a checkbox for offline reporting. Only check this box if you have enabled time-stamping in your SiteCatalyst. If these settings don't match, you won't see any reporting. Time-stamping requires contacting your Omniture representative.
  • As of mag+ v4.13.7, we support Omniture in Android or Kindle Fire apps.

Data Available from Omniture

When logged in to your Omniture account, you can choose your app's report suite and see a variety of options along the left side of the screen. Omniture is still primarily a website tracking tool, so many of the options in the menu are not used here. The ones to focus on for mag+ analytics are: Site Metrics, Site Content, Paths and Visitor Retention. 

Site Metrics

The following information is available:

  • Page Views (click the Selected Page link at the top to choose a particular page)
  • Visits
  • Visitors (unique by various time periods)
  • Time Spent per Visit metric is not used here - that can be tracked below.

Site Content

This area gathers a lot of information about a particular page or Issue. Pages shows individual Verticals; Site Sections shows issues.

  • To determine what stats you see per Issue or per page, click the Selected Metrics link at the top. Here you can get the following information by Issue or Vertical:
    • Time spent
    • Views
    • Visitors
  • To track links, choose Links > Custom links, and you will see the number of times any given Hotspot was tapped, whether a Popup, Web Link, Jump link or Media Hotspot. To use these metrics, name the hotspots in your app descriptively.


Used on pages, this metric gives you a way to see how readers are moving through your Issues.

Visitor Retention

Show repeated use of your app, including:

  • Return frequency
  • Return visitors
  • Daily return visits
  • Loyalty information
Note: You can set up very powerful custom dashboards and reports out of Omniture, so you can easily get the metrics you need.
