Goals - tracking url with querystring not working

Not applicable

Hi - I have a couple of goals as follows:


ID1 / Goal set 1: Contact form submitted - EQUALS TO: /contact?ok#alert-success

ID3 / Goal set 1: Contact form loaded - EQUALS TO: : /contact


ID3 tracks and provides data. ID1 does not. Is this because of the querystring?


Appreciate any advice, thanks

few things:
1. by default analytics does not track #alert-success so use this only if you altered your GA code to provide such info in pages report
2. ID1 - remove #alert-success
3. ID3 - check in pages report that there may be some other instances of this page such as /contact?someQueryParam=1234 - if so change equals to to begins with

Kind regards,
