Cookie Name Duration (Expiration) Purpose
Google Analytics     

1) _ga

 

2) _utma

 

3) _utmb

 

4) _utmc

 

5) _utmz

1) Distinguish the current domain, start and end of a session, traffic source, unique visitors, number and time of previous visit and value of visitor-level custom variables.

 

2) Used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing _utma cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

 

3) Used to determine new sessions/visits. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing _utmb cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

 

4) Not used in ga.js. Set for interoperability with urchin.js. Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the _utmb cookie to determine whether the user was in a new session/visit.

 

5) Stores the traffic source or campaign that explains how the user reached your site. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

 

6) Used to store visitor-level custom variable data. This cookie is created when a developer uses the _setCustomVar method with a visitor level custom variable. This cookie was also used for the deprecated _setVar method. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

(* The “DURATION” refers to the cookie expiry date.)


For Urchin.js – Cookie Usage
Historically, Google Analytics provided a JavaScript measurement library named urchin.js. When the newer ga.js library launched, developers were encouraged to migrate to the new library. For sites that have not completed the migration, urchin.js sets cookies identically to what is set in ga.js. Read the ga.js cookie usage section above for more details.
