Track external pages?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

We have applications on some external pages and people can fill out this form without visiting our site. We have the same application on our site that we of course track. What are the possibilities to measure/track the applications on external pages besides just ask for that data? Is that even possible somehow?

 

Best,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

In order to track external pages, you need to have the tracking code for your property on them.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Hi Arnold,

Ok. I was afraid that was the only way. Isn't it possible to place a tracking script on the external site that sends data to our Google Analytics? Like they do at media agencies.

Hi,

That is exactly what you need to do. To place your Google Analytics tracking code on the external page.
