"Page Analytics" Chrome Extension: How to Show Data for a Hyperlink

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi Community! 

 

While using the "Page Analytics" extension in Chrome, I am able to see how many users clicked on specific links, buttons, etc on my company's website. However, not all hyperlinks show analytics data as being clicked, even though I am 100% positive that people are clicking on them. Am I missing something here, do I need to add a piece of code to have GA data attributed to each and every link, or what? Here's the page I'm referring to: http://www.oiaglobal.com/en/about-oia/newsroom/solas-updates 

 

The specific links I'm talking about are the "Download our SOLAS VGM infographic" and "Download our VGM Declaration Form" hyperlinks in the body of the first paragraph.

 

Thanks so much for any guidance you can offer! Smiley Happy

Hi Darragh G,

Since the links to not go to measurable pages (GA won't fire on a PDF) you need to measure this via event tracking.
