Google Analytics can show you which previous page brought your visitors to a page, but it can't tell you which button it was.
So I set up event tracking for buttons and links, to figure out later which button was clicked.
Are these button-clicks Events Without Interaction?
One example in the documentation states that if you were tracking clicks on a «Read More» button by means of events, you would set «Event without Interaction» to false, since it should create a new page view (it's opening the next page).
Other parts of the documentation only mention influences on the calculation of bounce rate.
For my understanding that's just wrong:
- The Click-Event is called. This does not change anything, except for forwarding the info to Analytics
- The browser handles the click by changing page. This will be tracked as a new page view, since the tracking code is loaded freshly.
With that understanding you'd only set Event without Interaction to false if your script, not your browser, handles the page load.
Or does the Event Without Interaction prevent the following page load from being tracked?
