[resolved] Print Friendly Google Anaytics Event Tracking (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I use the print friendly wordpress plugin as well as yoast analytics. How can I setup event tracking so that if someone clicks the button it's triggered as an event in Google Analytics?

    Much similar to how Yoasts plugin already does that when .pdf's etc are opened.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thanks,that would work but I'm using the plugin that drops in the print friendly button via a shortcode in the template. Not just manually pasting in the button.

    Any ideas on how I'd get it to auto add event tracking to each button?

    Your plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/printfriendly/

    I want to be able to track clicks on the print buttons via analytics as an event.

    Preferably using Yoast GA plugin. Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Yes. It should work with Yoasts GA plugin and if you tracked by yourself.
