Im trying to setup a goal in google analytics that will track the following :

  • any visit to the /contact page would be classed as a goal
  • any visit to the /contact page, but if a user clicks a particular outgoing link from the contact, would not be considered a goal part of the same goal

Can this be achieved ?

  • Sorry, not following. What do you mean when you want to exclude clicks to an outside source. Do you mean outbound links? Also, I don't think you can use other conditions in a URL goal.

  • @nyuen ive updated the question should hopefully be clearer. what im trying to do really is track a user flow. so if a user goes to /contact and does 1 thing it counts as a goal, but goes to /contact and dose somthing else it wouldnt be counted as a goal

  • Ah, ok, the first part is doable (any visit to /contact), but the second part not so doable because as I mentioned, you can't include sequences or other things into a destination goal. You could try Custom Funnels though, where you can define a sequence of events and URLs.
