Goal not tracking page

Hi there,


I'm having a few issues setting up a goal for tracking our newsletter sign-ups.


I've created the goal using Destination > Regular expression > #thank-you-message (it is possible to sign up to our newsletter from any page on the website as there is a sign-up block at the bottom of the page). The url looks something like this:


I've tested the goal and it's not tracking it. Does this mean that as it is only a module on the page, we'd be unable to track newsletter sign-ups?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Social Enterprise,


First thing to do is to make sure that you are getting the fragment (#thank-you-message) in your content reports as url fragments are not tracked by default. 



If you are using GTM follow Simo's advice here as he is the man...  that is all.  Smiley Happy
