I am mailing a newsletter which has some links to my website. I need to keep count of these link clicks. How can i keep track of this using google analytics.

I am new to google analytics. i tried this link builder http://www.google.com/support/analytics/bin/answer.py?answer=55578 http://www.xyz.com/?utm_source=src&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=support

but these parameters are not appearing in traffic sources of dashboard.

please help.

  • Are you only tracking total click totals or do you need per email or unique only clicks? – citricguy Oct 20 '11 at 6:19
  • only click totals – max steel Oct 20 '11 at 6:42

They appear under campaigns, which is under traffic sources. In your example URL the campaign would be support.

  • I just made some clicks on my URL. it seems like dashboard doesnt show todays visitor count. will it be updated one day later or does this happen right away. – Sharath B. Patel Oct 21 '11 at 4:34
  • It takes a day or so. – paulmorriss Oct 21 '11 at 8:08
