I want to use Google Analytics to track registrations on my site. I don't see anything in my Google Analytics reports. Here is my markup:

<input type="submit" value="Register"  onSubmit="pageTracker._trackEvent('Goals','Registration');"/>

I'd like to know how to make this work, or how to troubleshot what is wrong.

Google Analytics has Goal Tracking and Event Tracking. I believe you are using event tracking.

Let me know if that isn't your issue. These two tracking systems in Google Analytics can be somewhat confusing.

I think you are correct Random that I'm confused between the two. I think I want Goals so I can use Goal Flow and Goal URL's. – David Silva Smith Dec 14 '11 at 15:19
@DavidSilvaSmith I thought so. At firs the 2 would appear to be the same and Google language sometimes doesn't help the situation. I have found events are most useful for things like tracking clicks on outbound links where there is no funnel. – Ben Hoffman Dec 14 '11 at 16:45
