My sites been up a couple of months but I thought GA would pick up all clicks that drive to an external site. Has GA picked up any of this data or am i too late? I recall the previous GA had this built in without tag manager?

Hi @Wain L,

 

If you didn't have event tracking on your outbound links, unfortunately, it will not be tracked automatically.

 

I hope this helps.

Regards

Hi @Gny

 

Thanks for your quick response. It's a shame, I'll try get data from the external site.
