Hi,

 

If I share a complete news (http://www.abc.com/x.html) in any WhatsApp Group or to a Person, how can I track that how many user click on that link. I don't have WhatsApp share button on my website.

 

 

Thanks

Hi @Amit S,

You can use utm parameters to track the traffic from whatsapp. Just add source, medium, campaign to your URL and share it.
Example: www.abc.com/x.html?utm_source=Whatsapp&utm_medium=Groupname&utm_campaign=xyz

Check URL Builder: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/

Hope this helps,
Thanks,
Ritwik

Hi @Ritwik B

 

Thanks for your suggestion. But the example you showed, I tried same for my urls, but still not seeing urls in Google Analytics, not in Real Time.

 

Is there any other way to track. As Google shows traffic on Channel basis as well. In which category Google count WhatsApp traffic ? (Social, Direct or Referral)

 

Thanks

Hi @Amit S,

You can add it in any channel, but you'll have to satisfy the channel conditions which are given here : https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3297892?hl=en

The reports will take some time to populate

Thanks,
Ritwik
