Goal

For some odd reason, the goals aren't being tracked on http://pfl90.com. The first URL that all subscribers are directed to after subscribing is this: http://www.imnicamail.com/v4/subscribe.php and that is the destination URL that I've used within goals.

 

Please tell me why goals aren't being tracked...

Hi Rich,

Actually, for the goals to work, the analytics code should also fire on http://www.imnicamail.com/v4/subscribe.php.

 
If its possible, try implementing the thank you page on pfl90.com itself(as pfl90.com/thank-you). So that you can track goals by specifying /thank-you/ as goal URL.

 

If its not, then you can implement cross domain tracking and include the page path /v4/subscribe.php as goal url.

Thanks,

Hello Ritwik, I talked with support at Imnica and I am NOT able to put the analytics tracking code on: http://www.imnicamail.com/v4/subscribe.php and please realize, this NEEDS to be the first page that every new subscriber arrives at after pressing the submit button.

 

The 2nd page they arrive at is: http://pfl90.com/check-your-best-email.

 

Understanding this, tell me how I can set up goals for tracking to work.

 

Thanks,

 

Rich.

Hi @Rich T,

I guess you are referring to the flow after clicking submit is:
pfl90.com > www.imnicamail.com/v4/subscribe.php (captures the mail) > pfl90.com/check-your-best-email

Then, try putting '/check-your-best-email' as goal URL.

Thanks,
Ritwik

I did try putting /check-your-best-email as goal url but it didn't work.

How can I resolve this so I can track this goal?

Hi, Rich T,

 

One option would be to fire an event or virtual page view (vpv) after the successful form submission (ie. when the user enters their email address and hits the submit button). The event or vpv would be used to track the conversions.

 

Hope this helps.

I clicked "event" and then I have the option of selecting:

Category
Action
Label
Value

... I'm not sure what to do.

Can you be more specific?

Hi, Rich,

 

One option would be to fire a GA event when the form is successfully submitted. It could be configured as, for example:

 

Category = subscribe

Action = submit

Label = get pfl90

 

Then in your GA Goals, you could configure a goal with the same event parameters. The key here is that this event gets fired as soon as the email that's entered is successfully validated, meaning the event fires when the user is still on the http://pfl90.com page, before they're redirected to the imnicamail.com page.

 

Hope this makes better sense. But please reply here if you would like more guidance.

I created the event and used the following parameters:

 
Category: Subscriber
Action: Submit
Label: Get PFL90
Value: 0
 
Now I'm confused about how to set up this next goal.
 
Please tell me exactly what I need to enter into the fields so we can get this working, thanks.

Hi, Rich,

 

For your goal configuration, you probably won't need a "Value". Something like this may be sufficient:

Now on your site you need to somehow fire the event with those exact parameters when the user submits the form. So you would need to execute this code as the form is submitted:

 

ga('send', 'event', 'Subscriber', 'Submit', 'Get PFL90');

The parameters of the event need to match those of the goal, in order for the goal to convert. You would likely need developer support in order to do this.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.
