Hi Harun,

I don't understand what you are trying to pull. What do you mean by website click? Click isn't really a dimension in GA. Do you mean entrances / landings?

Hi Harun,

Well by default, GA only sends a hit on pageview. So if every click on your site results in a pageview you can use pageviews as an approximation for clicks. If you have other interactions like video, pdf's or other downloadables etc, then you will need to use event tracking to measure this and the output would be pageviews and events added together for an approximation of clicks.

In the API you can use ga:hits to also get an approximation of clicks but this also includes ecommerce hits (two per transaction) where a click does not really occur.

You could also create a calculated metric of Pageviews + Total Events to also give you something closer to what you want.

Hope that helps.
