Hi everyone Smiley Happy

We have new beautiful javascript Google Partners badge to use on our websites. How do I modify the code so that clicking the Badge on my website fires an event in Analytics...?

Thanks @Kasia I :-)
are you able to provide a link to the page that has the badge code on it?
Id like to have a look at what the code is doing/rendering in the page.
I have a feeling it is possibly inserting the badge via an iframe or something inwhich

case, it may not be possible to track it or may have to go about it a different way

I'm assuming you are not able/permitted to edit the badge code?

Are you able to wrap it in a span tag and then apply an onclick to the span to trigger the event
eg  <span onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'Partner Badge', 'clicked');">other badge code here</span>

Alternatively GA Autotrack might be helpful in tracking it as an event eg a click on the badge.. or as an outbound link, if it links to a page on an external site

I am able to edit the code, but I'm not sure if I know how to make the change Smiley Happy

Should the code look like this:

<span onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'Partner Badge', 'clicked');">
<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/platform.js" async defer></script>
<div class="g-partnersbadge" data-agency-id="3355832644"></div>
</span>

...? It looks like I made a mistake, as it doesn't fire any event Smiley Sad
