Goal is not being verified

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, 

 

I'm pulling my hair out. My goal destination URL is the following: 

https://mywebsite.com/?ref=install&#P2VtYWlsPWtheWxlaWdobmFkaWEyM0BnbWFpbC5jb20mbmFtZT1IZWxlbg==

 

Everything after the & sign is unique. So under the goal destination URL I choose 'Begin' With' and enter the fixed part of the URL: /?ref=install& 

 

see: http://take.ms/0n3V3 

  

However, my goal doesn't verify and I am not seeing any goal being tracked. 

 

Am I doing anything wrong here? 

 

Thanks for your help

 

Vincent

Hey Vincent,

 

two things here:

 

1) GA drops anything after anchor parameter (#). Even if goals are recorded, they'll all have same Goal URL https://mywebsite.com/?ref=install&. Try avoid # in your URL or escape this character

 

2) when you define goal destination URL, try 'Begins With' : /?ref=install [leave the &]. It seems if you append & in the matching expression, the URL has to have a second query parameter (else it wont math!).

 

This should solve the issues. let me know!

 

cheers!
