We have a website that we advertise via Facebook but in Google Analytics only 30-50% of the clicks appear. This is quite common with ad programs, including Facebook ads as can be seen here. As covered there: Facebook Ads reports clicks. Many third-party reporting packages report visits or page views, which may not correspond directly to Facebook’s ...

Yes, it's possible: $(document).ready(function(){ ctrl = false; document.addEventListener("keydown", function(e){ if(e.which == 17){ ctrl = true; } if(e.which == 70 && ctrl == true){ e.preventDefault(); } }, true); document.addEventListener("keyup", function(e){ if(e.which == 17){ ctrl = false; ...

You can build campaign tracking with this Google Analytics tool. However, having it trackable at an individual level is a contravention of Google Analytics' ToS. "You will not (and will not allow any third party to) use the Service to track, collect or upload any data that personally identifies an individual (such as a name, email address or billing ...

If you want capture the event keyboard Ctrl + F and continue with the opening of the standard searchbox of the browser, you could do this: var KEY_CTRL = 17; var KEY_f = 70; var isReserved = false; var useExclusiveKeyEvent = false; var isNewSearchEvent = false; /*THIS VARIABLE IS RENDERED BY SERVER SIDE*/ var clientRandomKey = "...

Often when you create an account on a site you get sent an email in which you must follow a link in order to complete the sign up process. The bot could simply be emulating this process, without knowing anything about the context of the email. Just a thought... if you had a subtle "DO NOT CLICK HERE" link in the email, would that catch the bots out?!

Spammers will do anything to see if they can exploit the system to make money. They could be exploring your site looking for weaknesses. They could be looking to sell their accounts if they discover they have lots of value. They may be following those links blindly because the bot doesn't know any better. Since they can automate the whole process spammers ...

I had this same problem at one time on my MediaWiki website.I downloaded a standalone PHP script. And that solved these bad bots from clicking on my advertisers' ads by IP range banning Bad Bots with a code that only bots can see and click on. Visit https://perishablepress.com/blackhole-bad-bots/

You are using gtag.js tracking code. Syntax for event tracking for gtag.js is: gtag('event', 'action', {'event_category': 'category', 'event_label': 'label', 'value': value}); If it does not require a value, the parameter can be omitted. Add it to your button using onclick eg <button onclick="gtag('event', 'click', {'event_category': 'button', '...

Take a look at the Top Events report in Google Analytics. Add Page as a secondary dimension and that might help you figure out where those unknown events are coming from. Furthermore, it's possible that Google Analytics event tracking might be integrated with some of the functionality of the web page. In other words, the event tracking code might be added ...

Use the list of events in the realtime report. It will tell you what each and every event actually is. You can access it with the "view" link on the realtime events report:

The easiest way would be to give your tags a specific class and data- attributes. Something like: <a href="url" class="paid-text" data-reftype="Paid Text" data-refname="Text Block Name">Paid Text</a> Then you would go into Google Tag manager and set up the following: 1) Link Click Listener tag to fire on all pages 2) Event Tracking tag 3) ...

It's simple way for GWT - if you add up the clicks of the individual keywords about 50% of the clicks are missing. Because, Google gives some reasons here (some of privacy reasons) but they can hardly explain the (huge) differences. And some of the keywords search volume is very low can be a reason also. You have to connect with Google Analitys for clicks &...

I've never seen Google AdSense not count clicks when they happen. If you are getting impressions in AdSense and you see ads on your site yourself, it is probably installed correctly. Users are likely just not clicking on the ads. The problem is likely your ad placement. When I visit your site, I only see a small add above all the content: Ads in that ...

One of the biggest issues you see between Google analytics and any advertising platform including google adwords is the placement of the Google Analytics Code. Google Recommends always putting the Analytic Code in the header of your website to ensure it can capture all click data before the page loads. Facebook, especially on mobile and tablets that use ...

If you're using an automated Marketing software like Marketo, you can create an invisible link (like white on white background) and create a smart list to exclude whoever clicking that link. OR you could exclude whoever is clicking on all links (in example: 20 times and more) as nobody is clicking all links... If that's a smart list, then emails won't be ...

Have you been able to see which pages, hostnames, browser, and networks this event is coming from? This type of event sounds like spam to me. Also bolstered by the fact that they're soliciting your visit! This site gives you good info on how to combat this nuisance.

Depends on what you mean exactly by a click. If you are trying to track what part of a screen a user is clicking in general, then you'll need to use javascript click handlers along with some ajax to let the server know about the click. If however, you want to know what links on your website a user has clicked, it will be stored in server logs. In a ...

Google Analytics tracks sessions and clicks. Clicks: How many time someone has clicked on an ad. Google won't charge you for multiple clicks if determines they aren't valid (e.g. a user double clicking on the ad while waiting for the page to load). These clicks might not show up in your analytics, whereas they may be showing up in your other tracking ...

I find tracking software to be slightly misleading. A "click" will indicate how many times a visitor has clicked an ad. A visitor may click the same ad more than once in a "session". A session being a unique set of activities by a single visitor. A person may leave the site and come back later and begin a new "session". Hope this helps.

When you are tracking events, they will not show up in standard reports for about 24 hours (usually less) even though you can see them right away in Real-Time. You mentioned that "they all work fine", so I am assuming that you have all your listeners in place. If you want to see exactly which links were clicked, then you would have to have included that in ...

Instead of installing a database, as you already have the redirect setup, you should be able to collect the access logs on your HTTP server(s) (guessing Apache if you're using .htaccess?) and use any number of packages to analyze it. Things ranging from the free AWStats to (often paid) Splunk. Of course this assumes you at least have access to the access ...

Use same tracking code for both Website & web application. For Conversion tracking use destination URL of your Signup form.

I think you should use other tracking codes for the app and the site you could create a filtered views for app and website - make life easier to track which signup is from app, you could add a dimension e.g. Mobile Device Info (ga:mobileDeviceInfo), app version (ga:appVersion)

My personal opinion is that click-maps have only one use: to identify if people are attempting to click something unclickable. All click-maps should provide this data. They are often sold as if they can replace eye-tracking heat-maps. However, look at where your mouse is now - I bet it is not over this text. As such, it simply does not match where the ...

To track registrations in Google Analytics, you need to set up a goal. You can do so by clicking "Admin" -> "Goals" -> "New Goal". You will want to create a new goal with the following details: Name: registration Destination: begins with "/registration-completed/" After you do this, the report in "Acquisition" -> "Campaigns" will automatically begin ...

Any form of link to your site being one in a link, text, or even a redirection is a technically a back link. Now the question I think your asking is if Google values the redirects back link. The answer is neither no or yes and depends on the redirection type. If the site redirects using a 301 then it would pass as a backlink, so think of a URL shortner these ...

You are using tag type 'Click Listener' and 'gtm.click' in the rule. As you are only using it for clicking links , you can better use: Tag type: 'Link Click Listener' Rule condition: 'gtm.linkClick' This is outlined in the GTM docs: 'When this tag is fired, Google Tag Manager begins listening for link clicks on the page. Link Click Listener should be used (...

Yes it is - you can balance the worth of a user's first touch to 100% (which ignores subsequent hits from that user when attributing value) under your view options in attribution models. This then effects everything under that view. If you only occasionally want to see this then create a new view and label it something appropriate. Compare the goal value of ...

Sadly the nature of the beast is that they are never going to line up exactly the adword tracking looks to be server side, where as the google analytics you have on your site is reliant on people's browsers and javascript. But is is not all hopeless people with javascript / google analytics disabled will show in adwords but not ga if your site is running ...
