comment Tracking URL Goals to an external site from a landing page
It's started to work. It must have just taken longer than usual.

I've set up the event tracking on the above link, but no conversions are being tracked for some reason. This is what I've been having trouble with. I believe the code on the site and the settings I posted are both correct, but no conversions are being recorded. There are conversions happening, so it's not just that there is no data to track.

I updated the question. I'm trying to track clicks on a link away from my site. Bonus points for how to get the click on this link to not count as a bounce. If possible.

These really are not helpful suggestions. I've spent a lot of time trying to get this working, and have been through the tutorials, FAQs, etc.

I followed those instructions before getting here, and they didn't help.

So you can't have goal URLs that point away from your site?

So in Admin ... > Goals under "Goal Details" the "Goal URL" right now is "itunes.apple.com/us/app/vitogo-fitness-personal-trainer/…; and should be what? I put that code in my site? How exactly do I format that for my link?

So on the facebook example, when you create your account, you are writing to the database(adding something new to it), when you are using the echo command you are reading from the database.

No problem Warren, it's complicated stuff at first, but it gets way easier once you get the fundamentals. There are just a lot of fundamentals. Let me know if my expanded comment above helps at all

It doesn't create an editable field, it prints out a line of code. So this is what is happening: We have a database that stores information in tables. Lets say we have a table called the users table, and in the users table we will have a bunch of columns, like first_name, last_name, email_address. in the HTML of your website, you want to be able to reference that information saved in the database, so you have to write a line of code to do that. In this case the line of code could be read out as "say "Hello 'user_name_of_person_logged_in'" or "Hello Warren"
