Goal Tracking isn't working

I wish to track sign-ups to a mailing list using Goals in Google Analytics. After users submit their email, they are redirected to . I set up goal tracking to Exact Match for /?confirmed, and none of my tests have been picked up.


I also created tests for other pages with the same result. Google Analytics is installed and working properly, and I do not have any URL rewrites set up.


What could be wrong and how can I fix it?

Hi Daniel,

You need to set the goal match type to "Regular Expression" and use ^/\?confirmed as your regex.

Let me know if it works.

Remember it takes some time before the goal completions appear in the reports
