I need help on how to make a specific referral traffic a goal. We have a blog on a sub domain ( and we want to track the traffic from the blog to our wesbite ( I know if we got to referral traffic and type in the blog we can see it, which is great. But we need to make it a goal so it will sync into SalesForce. Does anyone know how to set up this kind of goal? I do have access to both analytic accounts for the company domain and the blog domain. I just thought it would be easier to set up a referral traffic goal in the company analytics but I could be wrong.

Not sure if it works for them...
