Event Tracking not working (no data in GA)

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Dear community,

 

I try to track clicks on all my external URLs listed on http://goo.gl/G3QgvC.

I implemented the code as explained here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1136920?hl=en.

 

As you can see in the sites source code, the code is implemented successfully in the header (just above the GA code).

Also the onclick-event for all the urls is integrated.

 

I startet with this yesterday morning. Now 24h are passed.

 

In GA I can't see any event:

 

 

 As I can't implement an image (error: invalid HTML) here the link to the screenshot: Google Analytics Screenshot

 

Can someone help me with this?

 

Post scriptum: The order of the scripts in the header is important?

 

With kind regards and thanks in advance,

Vince

Hi Vince,

Your event tracking code is for Universal Analytics but your tracking code is classic analytics. You need to upgrade your tracking code to analytics,js:

Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.

OH... MY... GOD!

Really? I know the time where google advertised his change to universal. Years ago =)
I thought I had changed this in all my domains... obviously not...

Thank you very much... I will do so immediately...
