Link tracking via URL to Google Analytics account

I'm having difficulty with getting the generated URL from the URL Builder and connecting it to my google analytics account to know who clicks on the link. I'm very lost at this point and am not understanding the differences between all of the different types of link tracking methods.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

What kind of difficulties do you have with getting the generated URL from the URL Builder?

Check the article below about the URL parameters, it explains how they works and there are examples also.

Hi Arnold,

The issue with the builder and my google analytics account is, is that it doesn't receive any information about anyone who clicks on the link. Any reason as to why i'm not receiving any of this data?

Thanks.

Hi,

The data should appear under Acquisition -> All Traffic -> Channels. You should be able to see the campaign parameters you set in URL builder.
