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?

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. Commented Oct 21, 2011 at 4:34
