I have a number of affiliate websites and have structured the event goals on my websites like this:

 

Event Category: Outbound Affiliate Links {Affiliate Outbound Links}

Event Action: Amazon {Affiliate Brand Name}

Event Label: Top Banner {Placement}

Custom Dimension: www.amazon.com/fasion/shoes/ds3fsadfdfd   {Custom dimension - Affiliate Click Url}

 

How do you suggest I structure my custom report?

How are you structuring your custom reports for conversions?

 

I look forward to hearing your thoughts!!

Hi Chris,

 

It's great to hear from you.

 

First of all, I would use a custom report that has event interactions by category, action and label. You can get it from here: https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=35i04VkYTXC-7o1-FU3BuQ

 

Another custom report that I have used (helps you analyze events by page): https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=zh4rJB6hQy6QvBcn255jcg

 

The third one that I have used: https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=TFfEvJ0DSluWkDf3yajNRQ

 

You can modify all of those reports and add your custom dimension as well. You can also add filters if those are important.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

Taavi

Thanks for the reports! much appreciated! So you don't think in the same report I should show goal conversion rate, goal location etc...or is that another report you suggest?

It really depends on what you'd like to see. Smiley Happy

 

That's one of the reports that use pretty often: https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=3tmdo4mVSHC3Yt1TWET9oA

 

1) Source / medium

2) Users

3) Goal 1 completions

4) Real Conversion Rate (based on Goal 1 completions)

 

I have calculated "Real Conversion Rate" using Calculated metrics: {{Registered Users (Goal 2 Completions)}} / {{Users}}

 

It's based on users, not sessions. Here you can read more about that: https://www.optimizesmart.com/fundamentally-wrong-conversion-rate/

 

That's another custom report that I have used: https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/template?uid=a7u0B2uzR8qCnCxvs4uH1w

 

Keep in mind, you'll need to modify those reports a bit as well. You can do it if you click on the "edit" button:

You should take a look at the Google Analytics Solutions Gallery as well. There are lots of useful reports that might help you: https://www.google.com/analytics/gallery/

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
