Tracking Vanity URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

I created a vanity url/page on our Drupal website that we are using for radio advertising. I have a redirect set-up on that page, but I want to track how many times people use that url. I have had it set-up for a few days, and visited it/ went to that url numerous times, but it's not showing up on my analytics report.

 

What am I missing?

Hi,

You can add tracking parameters to your site URL and redirect the vanity URL to the tagged URL.
Build the tagged URL using the URL builder tool here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867
The results will appear under the acquisition reports, you will find the campaign name you used in Acquisition -> Campaigns -> All Campaigns. Let me know if you have questions.
