Conversion Set Up for Link to An External Website

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey everyone,

 

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?

 

Thanks!

 

Kevin

Hello kevinmhealy;

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:

Hi Kevin,

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.
