Difference between Analytics goals and real cotracts

Hey there,

 

i have a problem with my analytics goals I currently track a thank you page by pageimpession. So the URL is placed as a goal. Now Analytics doesn´t track all these hits. The process ist, that the user will be redirected to the thank-you page, after clicking a submit-button. Bevore these step, the server sends a confirmation-mail to the user and to my adress. So i recognized, that i have  confirmation-mails on several days, but i miss some success hits in my analytics goals.

 

Do you have an idea, where to start to look?

 

many thanks!

Hi Sebastian,

 

You can check if your tracking tag is installed properly on the thank you page using the Google Tag Assistant Chrome extension.

Maybe the user closes the thank you page before the tracking tag has a chance to fire. Make sure that the tracking tag is installed in the head tag of the pages. Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.
