Facebook Traffic

Hi All

 

I have started receiving a lot more traffic from Facebook, but I don't know which Page it is coming from (it's not from my my own page).

 

Is there any way to find out using Analytics? 

 

Thanks in advance

Not to find out individuals. The best you can do is try to have Facebook subscribers 'like' your Facebook profile after they visit your website.

Thanks Hoang

I'm not looking to find out individuals (people are signing up with their email addresses anyway). I'm just curious to see who/which FB page is referring them to me.

Thanks

Hi,

You need to use tagged URLs to your site on your facebook page to track the visitors coming from your fb page. Your link should look something like this:

http://www.yoursite.com/?utm_campaign=FacebookPage&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com

You will see how many visitors came through your link in the Acquisition -> Campaigns reports.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.

Thanks for that.

Just to clarify they are not coming through from MY facebook page.

I do not know which Facebook page they are coming from.
From the sounds of it, Analytics is unable to tell me this either and will only generically let me know that users are coming from somewhere on Facebook.com.

Right, as you say, GA only knows they are from fb, but not the specific page.
