I'm running a Drupal 7 install with Domain Access. All individual pages on both of the websites seem to be tracking correctly in a singular Google Analytics account (site1, site2). It seems traffic to site2's home page is being omitted. I am also using the Google Tag Manager module. I am thinking I should set up a separate GTM account to track the second site and just configure GTM Module at the…

I was wondering if anyone had tried or done this before. I see some modules that add an option to exclude from results some items by altering the query.
