Best Advice For Tracking Goals With the Same Destination URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all,

 

I'm looking for some advice on tracking goals.

 

My site has a form on every page and i would like to track the form submissions from each page.

 

The problem is that each form has the same destination URL and unfortunately the data in analytics is way off at the moment.

 

I've set it up as follows  :

 

Page 1 (required step) : Destination URL

Page 2 (required step) : Destination URL

Page 3 (required step) : Destination URL

 

Can anyone suggest the best way to fix this so we can measure this accurately?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

 

Peace out!

Hi,

 

You can pass a query parameter to the destination URL that would indicate what page has been the form submitted on.

 

You would get:

 

Page 1 (required step) : Destination URL?page=page1

Page 2 (required step) : Destination URL?page=page2

Page 3 (required step) : Destination URL?page=page3

 

Let me know if you have questions.

Hey Arnold,

 

Thanks for the response. We would like to avoid changing any code if possible?

some code changes will be needed.

without code change, I dont think its possible

One other option is u may want to trigger GA events on form submissions and use the events as Goals.
