What is “page url not defined” in the Pages report?
Matomo (Piwik) provides two reports for your page views: Page Titles and Page URLs. In some rare cases, a visitor’s browser will not let the Matomo Tag request the current URL (generally for privacy reasons).

- 4) If your pages are correctly tracked but you still don’t see any URL being tracked, please investigate/debug the issue with Firebug or ask in the forums posting your site URL so we can help you.
