Tracking and recording visits with a re-direct?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am trying to track visits to a page, lets call it:

 

www.examplequestion.com/page1

 

The above URL is not a physical page so any code or javascript cannot be placed on the page.

 

When a customer types in www.examplequestion.com/page1 they will be re-directed to a landing page: www.examplequestion.com/buythisoffer

 

How can I track visits to /page1 please? as it doesn't show in GA.

 

Thanks in advance.

Gareth,

Assuming this is a server side redirect, there are a few ways to do this. If you are using this as a vanity URL you can have the redirect append UTM parameters which is probably your best method. So instead of redirecting to www.examplequestion.com/buythisoffer it would be something like: www.examplequestion.com/buythisoffer?utm_source=billboard&utm_source=outdoor&utm_campaign=Falll+Prom...
