How to set outbound link traffic as a conversion goal ?

Dear members,

 

We want our customers to visit our website and then visit our Amazon product page.

Therefore our ideal conversation goal is clicks from the site to outbound links of  Amazon page . Guess it's the best since we can't correlate GA data with data inside amazon?

 

How to set this as a conversion goal ? (we already have tracing enabled outbound event in analytics)

 

P.S: If you think anything mentioned above makes no sense,please call out. I'd be more than happy to hear someone calling me stupid and then correct.

Thanks a lot !  Is there a way to find the trackevent format being used now? Our  webmaster is not around.

Just look at your Events category report in Behavior > Events

From there you will very likely have a "Outbound link" category you can use in your event-based goal definition
