I would like to start tracking referal links and report in GA. I have been looking around the net but there is so much info on this...


I just need the code to track external links that direct back to my site. (ie: links on other websites that direct to mine).


Thanks Smiley Happy

Hey GB,


Are these links that you have access to in order to edit them or are you more or less just tracking backlinks that have built up over time?  


I use the basic Google URL builder to set up basic tracking on some sites where I have control over the link.  


Not sure if that will help or not...
