Link to #id in own page generates double tags

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I'm debugging my page www.henryaudio.com in Chrome with the Tag Assistant. When I click the top-right "Buy" or the "Buy now" in the picture the page scrolls to the right section. BUT: each of my two tags (GA and remarketing) appear twice.

 

Any idea why tags get replicated when linking to an #id on the same page and following that link?

 

 

Best regards,

Borge

Tag is triggering only once on click.

You can easily debug on the website with GA debugger:

You can check in chrome, console tab with 'Preserve log' turned ON.

The GA debugger doesn't really tell me all that much here.

What I see is that when the page is first loaded, the two expected tags are set. When I click on a same-page link with #id1, the two tags are replicated. When I keep clicking on other same-page links #id1, #id3 etc. the number of tags remains at 4.

I wish to know if there are known issues with tag replication with same-page links. All I want to do is let the user scroll up and down.


Best regards,
Børge

The reason may be in how I track the clicks. A click on the "Reviews" button in the header has the following code:
<a href="#reviews" onclick="ga('send', 'pageview', '/Clicks-Navigation-Reviews_header');">Reviews</a>

So here ga() sends a different pageview while it is still on the same page. However, when I click on other links on the same page with the same style but different content, the tags are not replicated again.

I just changed ga(send pageview..) to ga(send event..) It still shows the same tag duplication when I click on that link. So I suspect this has to do with same-page linking and not the flavor of the tracking message.

<a href="#purchase-info" onClick="ga('send', 'event', 'Click', '/Clicks-Navigation-Buy_picture', 'Scroll');">Buy now</a>
