    Question Do you use Google Analytics event tracking?

    A couple weeks ago DanHorvat asked about using the event tracking feature in Google Analytics to track clicking on affiliate links as a goal in the following thread: Google Analytics events tracking.

    Personally, I've thought doing that makes a lot of sense. We have generated page views for such clicks for a very long time (even before the event tracking feature was added), but we've never gotten around to using the actual event tracking feature of Google Analytics. Besides affiliate links, we've also tracked events like signing up for newsletters with our own home-brewed urls.

    So, for this week's poll I figured I'd ask how many folks are using the events tracking feature, some more primitive method of tracking using Google Analytics, something separate from Google Analytics, or nothing at all.

    Be sure to share your thoughts about what you believe about monitoring visitor activity on your sites, what you are currently doing, and how you would like your monitoring to evolve in the future.

    Thanks Michael,

    In fact I had just made a comment that ddm took extra time to explain in a bit more detail how to set it up, thanks again ddm.

    Like Dan mentioned in the linked thread, I had never taken the time to set that up on any sites, but after seeing the explanation, I will do so at some point now.
