I am trying to monitor the number of clicks on a ebanner on a website and this ebanner links to an external website.

For example, if I'm on abc.com, clicking on the ebanner leaves abc and goes into xyz.com. Google analytics cannot track this event because I do not have the GA access for xyz.com. Hence, I've created a GTM tag to track outbound link.

I have also set up a Google Analytics tag in GTM and created a goal to track this specific event. However, with the tags firing, the goal conversion I set up in GA remained 0.

Am I doing something wrong?

use UTM parameter which will get track in Google Analytics

Track it with "linkClick" Event, it is pretty easy to create you have everything predefined, enter conditions that trigger fire when "Click Url" matches xyz.com than when you defining a tag remember what exactly you typed for event category or action. Then go to GA and create a event type goal that will match your event category. That is pretty much it

  • I did track it with linkClick. However, I'm unsure of what I should fill in under Goal details. Under Category, Action, Label and Value. Understand that category is the detail i've input in GTM. What about the rest? – J. Shi May 8 at 1:48
  • Category should be enough, when you setting up a goal you can check it on "verify this goal" under step 3 (goal details) and it will show you if the set up is as it should be. – Filozof666 May 8 at 5:28
