Button Tracking in Optimize

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I'd like to be able to tell the experience to analyze the CTR of a defined Button on the control and the variation, similar to Optimizely. I can only, however, find the Bounce, Pageviews and Session Duration under the reporting metrics. Can button CTR be tracked through Optimize in the free version or at all?

 

Thanks,

Brennan

Well maybe I'll answer my own question. 

 

It looks like you have to track the buttons based on a click event then convert that to a goal in Analytics for Optimize to be able to report on it.

 

Ok Google, it would be awesome if these triggers existed within the Optimize interface like Optimizely otherwise it is a little useless to track info that can already be found in GA. Just my two cents.

Hi, I'm afraid I can't shed any light on that, but I would like to ask a bit of a follow up question, which I'm hoping you or others might be able to help with?

Are we able to use tracked links as well as a url split test? e.g. if I post an ad with .com/?utm_ etc, am I able to track the results of that link in typical GA? Or will it strip the link out in order to serve the variant?

 

For context, my visitors get a bonus if they share the website after purchasing, to track if they've shared it, I give them a unique urm using utm.

If you have any ideas or thoughts on that, it would be much appreciated!
