Hi all,

 

As mentioned in subject, what is the definition of "Total Click" in Google URL Shortener?

Is it counting a unique visitor accessing the target URL?

If not, what is it counting? Is it possible to show unique visitor in Google URL Shortener information page?

Hope that I can have the official reply from Google as I need it to debate with a marketing firm.

 

Thanks and regards

Ben

Normally Clicks is a metric used in tracking events on google analytics or conversions in AdWords. A click is when anyone clicks on the link that is being tracked, regardless of how many times.

You can also track other events besides click depending on what data you are looking for in Analytics.
