Hi Little N,

I do not think this is the right forum for your question You should probably ask this question in the Analytics forum if you need more details.. but here's what I can help you with..

If you want to track the click on a link you may want to set up event tracking on the link, specially if you are taking people to a different domain.
If the page you are taking people to is a page on your own website, you will be able to chk traffic sources to that page.
For CTR, see the amount of traffic on page 1 and then the number of events on the link. this will be able to give you a CTR.

If you need it historically, you may get an approximate number by seeing the inpage analytics viewof the page.
Here are details for Inpage analytics - https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2558811?hl=en

Hope this helps!

Hi,

You will most likely need to install Analytics on your website. You can also link your analytics to your adwords account.

Hope this helps

Hi Little Nini,

You will need to use event tracking with Analytics to sort this.
