Goal is not being verified

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

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


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& 




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

Hey Vincent,


two things here:


1) GA drops anything after anchor parameter (#). Even if goals are recorded, they'll all have same Goal URL 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!
