Conversion Set Up for Link to An External Website
I sell a product but I don't handle the transaction part. If they want to buy it they go to an external site. Since I can't add a link to the external website I was wondering how I could at least track when they go to that website.
Is there anyway I can tie a "conversion" to a link on my page?
This requires some technical work of developer to track eCommerce.
As far as I know, you'll need Analytics e-commerce tracking, and some technical assistance from a developer.
Let me try to find you some reading resources:

You could put Google analytics event tracking on the button that is clicked to bring you to the external site.
You'd place a string of code on the button such as payment / leave site /
Then look at it in analytics using a paid search filter.
