How to do goal settings in the absence of Thank You page?

Hi everyone,
We are running adword campaign for www.signinghub.com.

Our goal is to increase the number of registrations. Unfortunately we do not have thank you page, which we can use in goal setting.

Whenever someone sign up there, we got a page like this - https://web.signinghub.com/Register/RegistrationComplete?q=VmDAvdplq0xKaNFP7b1SRW8fM5MJ%2bujjpdQYFqe...

So in the absence of thankyou page how I can set goals in Adword?

Please provide your valuable suggestion so that I can track and moniter adword compaign properly.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Osama,

The link of webpage that you have shared is redirecting to an error page (https://web.signinghub.com/Error)

If after registration completion, it is redirecting to this url then you can modify this page as your "thank you" page and place a conversion tracking snippet on the page and set as goal in Google analytics.

Hi Osama,

I have found that you are using Google Analytics code in the website:www.signinghub.com.

But not usingGoogle analytics in https://web.signinghub.com/.

So first implement GA in the subdomain also:https://web.signinghub.com/.

Then you can connect Google analytics with adwords.

And some one when register a page end up with an url like this: https://web.signinghub.com/Register/RegistrationComplete?q=VmDAvdplq0xKaNFP7b1SRW8fM5MJ%2bujjpdQYFqe...

So next implement a Goal in the analytics account of:https://web.signinghub.com/

where your goal will contain url desination /RegistrationComplete

After the goal creation,go to your adwords account and import your goal in that from Google Analytics account.

Now you can track your Goals in adwords as well as GA also.


Hope it helps.

Hi Archit,
Thanks for the reply.
Yes if you open it directly it will show 404 error. Actually when user click on registration or sign up , it takes them to https://web.signinghub.com/.
Once user fill the form there and click on register then it takes them to the link I mentioned above (which is in the form of a query string instead of a thank you page). That is why am unable to track it via Adword.

As its a sub-domain of the primary domain, not the secondary domain or secondary sub-domain. So, may be you just need to paste the GA code to both the webpages but I am not sure whether you need to link it separately.

Thanks Soumik,
Yes, you are right and this seems a applicable solution. Web.SignignHub is currently not monitored via Analytics. Let me add Analytics code there and then I'll add goal there.
One more Question - As you said "where your goal will contain url desination /RegistrationComplete"
by doing so would it be able to track it? As resultant URL is in the form of Query string. So by setting "/RegistrationComplete" as Goal, will it be able to track it properly?

Hello Osama,
That is why I mentioned URL Contains 'RegistrationComplete' whatever the RegistrationComplete will be same.
