I run a site that has a paging list showing a fixed number of items per page. I want to find out how how likely users are to navigate to the next page, given there is a next page. In other words, if my event tracking shows that on, say, page 3, users are very unlikely to click next, I want to be sure that this is not because most of the list are only 3 pages long.
My idea has been to send one event for each page view that tells GA whether this particular page is the last or not, and then to send another event if the user clicks on 'next'. I would then assume I could somehow extract information in Google Analytics telling me how often a user clicks 'next', given the last event was one saying the current page was not the last.
However, this does not appear to be something Google Analytics can easily do. My question therefore is: Is there another way to solve the same problem, or is there indeed away to get the information from Google Analytics with the approach I've been using?
Update: I want to clarify that on my site there are many of these lists, and they are of varying lengths. Which means that sometimes when the user is on page 2 of a list, sometimes there is a page 3 and sometimes there isn't. Obviously the user can't go to page 3 if there are only two pages. If I don't correct the data for these cases, I have no way of knowing if a sharp decline in users clicking 'next' is caused by a unusually many list that are only one page long, or something else.
