I just wanted to ask if there's any way that I can track some Advertising banners on my website through Google analytics.

Hi Mahmoud-Magdy,

 

If I understand correctly, you need to track clicks on outgoing links on your sponsored ads on your website?

 

There are 2 ways of handling this I can think of immediately.

 

1. Setup virtual page views for each of your ads. Then review stats for the virtual pages.

 

2. Have the links go to a page on your website that records the click and forwards the visitor to the correct link. You'll need to identify the advertiser or the link. You can do that by assigning a unique value to the query string for each advertiser or for each ad or both. Make sure the Analytics tracking code is properly placed on the page.

 

Best of Luck!

Hi petebardo,

 

 

Thanks so much for your response. 

 

Could you please explain for me, what do you mean with: (assigning a unique value to the query string for each advertiser)? And how to do so? 

 

 

 

Regards,
Mahmoud
