I have a few domains that redirect to the main website. How do I find the reports on how many clicks these domains are getting?

If you want to track them nicely moving forward, then yes this is the correct form. So, you need to use the main website custom paramtered URLs in the other website. If you would like to know the clicks prior to now, then use the suggestion that I've given above.

Hi Sharon,
'
You can create tagged URLs for each redirected domain to your website using the tool here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en

Something like below will do:
http://www.mainwebsite.com/?utm_source=redirecteddomain.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=redirec...

Then forward your domains to these URLs. You'll see the results under Acquisition -> All Traffic -> Referrals.

Hope this helps.

Hi Sharon,

If GA accounts for these domains are different, then check the other domains in the Source / medium reports in the main website GA account. If the GA accounts are the same then add a view with the hostname / domain filter, then you'll be able to see the traffic / clicks between the domains.

I don't think that is it as it says - Generate custom campaign parameters for your advertising URLs.

So the official website is
.co.uk
I also own .com and .co (and others)
Is it correct to use that form then?
