Hi,

You can goto acquisition->All traffic -> Referrals to see the traffic from Facebook. Then to track the conversion ( sale, form submit) you can apply appropriate metrics.

 

Thanks

Hi Ryan, Yes, you can track conversions from facebook in GA.To do this - you need to first go to the Conversion section of GA -->Goals--> Overview. Then create an advanced segment with source - facebook.com. It will help you to see all the goal conversions led by facebook in a single report. See the attached pics to do it by yourself. problem 2.JPGproblem 2.1.JPGIf you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi Think B, thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it.

I have done this and understand how it works now I think
The analytics look incorrect thought... it seemed to work for a day and then it has stopped recording data even though the ad is still running and getting conversions ...

I will attach screen shots in a shared dropbox folder ... sorry I don't know how to put them in here ...

I'm not sure what else to add to be of assistance ... I feel like I understand how to get the data ... now I need assistance understanding why it's not collecting Data correctly, I am also about to email my webmaster to see if they can help. I use a platform called rainmaker to tun my site and they do everything for me I just give them the relevant information ...

Best Regards
Ryan C
