First time GA user. I am using RoundCube mail client.

 

I want to enable link tracking for my website. How do I properly input my tracking code combined with website URL - into my hyperlink?

Hi Ben, 

 

Can you elaborate? Are you trying to insert Analytics tracking within your email or on your website? 

 

You can track email opens/events with the following article: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/protocol/v1/email 

 

Additionally you should be using UTM tagging for ALL your links to your website: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/ 

 

Let me know if this answers your question.

Hi Josh,

 

I am trying to understand which combination of tracking ID, tracking code, UTM code, and campaign parameters (and in what order) I should input into "Insert Link" URL field so that the link is functional and tracking correctly.


So far, I've put this code at the bottom of my e-mail signature. Not sure what next.

Here's a nice email i found that should explain what you can do with email event tracking: 

<img src=”http://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1&tid=UA-XXXXXXX-YY&cid=*|UNIQID|*&t=event&ec=email&ea=ope... />

 

v = 1 Protocol Version (required)

tid = UA-XXXXXX-YY Tracking ID / Web Property ID (required)

cid = *|UNIQID|* Client ID (required). This anonymously identifies a particular user, device, or browser. The value – *|UNIQID|* – is a dynamic parameter (aka merge tag) in MailChimp that will fill in the user’s MailChimp ID.

t = event  Hit type (required). We’re tracking this with event tracking, hence the event hit type.

ec = email Event Category

ea = open Event Action

el = *|UNIQID|* Event Label

cs = newsletter Campaign Source

cm = email Campaign Medium

cn = 062413 Campaign Name

cm1 = 1 Custom Metric 1

Source: Luna Metrics 

 

Let me know if this solves your problem!
