The Very Basics - The Google Analytics Cookies When someone visits a website that is properly coded with Google Analytics Tracking Code, that website sets four first-party cookies on the visitor's computer automatically.
There can be up to five different cookies that a website with Google Analytics tracking code sets on your computer. However, four of them are automatically set, while the fifth one is an optional cookie. See below.
|_utma||This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like Days and Visits to purchase.||On start of session||2 years|
|_utmb||The B and C cookies are brothers, working together to calculate how long a visit takes. _utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters a site, while _utmc takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves a site. _utmb expires at the end of the session. _utmc waits 30 minutes, and then it expires. You see, _utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, and if it doesnâ€™t, it expires.||On start of session||30 mins|
|_utmc||See above||On start of session||For the life of the session|
|_utmz||If you are making use of the user-defined report in Google Analytics, and have coded something on your site for some custom segmentation, the _utmv cookie gets set on the personâ€™s computer, so that Google Analytics knows how to classify that visitor. The _utmv cookie is also a persistent, lifetime cookie.||On start of session||6 months|
