Tip: Use Goals to get alerted when users land on broken pages on your website
You can use Goals in conjunction with Analytics Alerts to send you notification when users encounter a broken page on your website. First, go into the Goals section and create a Custom Goal for “destination” using the address of the error page URL from your website. That way, every time a user hits that broken page alert, Google Analytics will track that as a goal.
Then set up an alert with the following settings:
- Apply to: “New Visitors and Overall”
- Period: “Day”
- Check “Send me an email…”
- Set alert conditions to apply to “All Traffic” and alert when “(select Goal you set up” meets the condition of “% increases by more than” for the value of “10%” compared to “same day in the previous week”
You can adjust any of these settings as needed for your particular business.
