My domain is (with GA which i can access) and there is our vendor website (external domain - i do not have access to this GA).

There is this link, which is a vanity url that redirects to the landing page in

Now how can I see the data in GA for ? is this possible to see traffic data for a redirect to an external domain with the vanity URL in my internal domain.


Hope my issue made sense. Let me know if I need to explain better to help understand the issue.
