Goal is not being verified
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
Re: Goal is not being verified
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!
