I'm looking to find a solution to tracking home page banner clicks on our website but will obtaining channel source data, ie. paid, organic, referral, social, email. ect.


i have used the URL builder but i think i will need to add more advanced terms in the string so that i still view the original channel data. 


Below is my very basic URL. i can view this in GA under campaigns.


As you can see from my screen shot. The traffic type is set to what i entered in the earlier stages - ideally i'd like to see this as the original type.

Another though is if  i can use that URL to trigger an event? if so can i then see event traffic style. 


i want to track HomePage banner clicks and all other associated metric along with it.

Hi Simon.


If you want to see all associated metric for banners on your site, you can implement in code part of Enhanced Ecommerce plug-in for measuring internal promotions. Example for promotion impressions (data sends with pageview):

ga('ec:addPromo', {               // Promo details provided in a promoFieldObject.
'id': 'PROMO_1234',             // Promotion ID. Required (string).
'name': 'HP-Banner',          // Promotion name (string).
'creative': 'Audi TT HP Banner',   // Creative (string).
'position': 'banner_slot1'      // Position  (string).

 Example for promotion clicks (data sends with click banner):

// Identify the promotion that was clicked.
('ec:addPromo', {
'id': 'PROMO_1234',
'name': 'HP-Banner',
'creative': 'Audi TT HP Banner',
'position': 'banner_slot1'

// Send the promo_click action with an event.
('ec:setAction', 'promo_click');
('send', 'event', 'Internal Promotions', 'click', 'HP-Banner');

Then you'll see information in GA report : Conversions->Ecommerce->Marketing->Internal Promotion:



Hope this helps.
