WP Google Analytics Events

Description

The WP Google Analytics Events plugin allows you to send events to Google Analytics when:

  1. A user scrolls to a point of interest on your site
  2. Clicking elements on the page, such as buttons or Ajax submit forms.

For example, create a Google Analytics event when a visitor scrolled down and viewed your pricing table. Track Video Plays and banner clicks.
Get to know what your visitors are doing on the website.

And best of all – No Coding Required

Events were introduced by Google Analytics to allow tracking of custom metrics that were not based on page views.
Tracking events is usually done by writing JavaScript code, and that is not the WordPress way.
We created this plugin, so you can use this feature without writing a line of code.

There are many benefits for using events, and you can get very creative:

  1. Setting event-driven goals in Google Analytics
  2. Tracking in page navigation
  3. Comparing call to action button performance
  4. Understanding what percentage of your visitors got to the end of an article
  5. Tracking contact form submissions
  6. Track Links
  7. Google Tag Manager Support

What Is Google Analytics Event Tracking?

Glad you asked, here is our Complete Introduction to Event Tracking in Google Analytics.

Where can I see the events in Google Analytics?

There are two places that show events in GA –

  1. The real-time dashboard under “events” – An event should show up here in (almost) real-time.
  2. The full report can be found under “Behavior” -> “Events”. Note that it can take up to 24 hours to show up in this section.
Do I have to write any code to use this plugin?

Don’t be silly. This is why we made this plugin. But on a serious note, this could get a little technical so take a look at our Plugin Documentation page.

What are some examples of using events?

There are many benefits of using events, and you can get very creative:

  1. Setting event-driven goals in Google Analytics
  2. Tracking in page navigation
  3. Comparing call to action button performance
  4. Understanding what percentage of your visitors got to the end of an article
  5. Tracking contact form submissions
  6. Track Links
Can the plugin work along the Google Tag Manager?

Yes, our plugin can work with GTM by using the Data Layer.
Read more about how to set it up in our Google Tag Manager implementation guide.

Reviews

Wonderful Support

Installation was flawless and when we did need support it was amazing support. First class. I have used many many plugins for WordPress and in terms of support this ranks right at the top. Would recommend it to anyone. The Pro version is very much worth the price. Thank you for your hard work.

Great Plugin

Great plugin, does exactly what it is supposed to. Support can feel a bit sluggish but it isn’t like I paid for support…

Great support

Our installation had an unknown conflict with some other element or plug in. After contacting WP Flow and providing detailed information, they were able to provide a patch in relative short order. I am very impressed.

Oh and the plug in is doing a great job reporting events to Google analytics.

Very happy

Useless

Everything that would make this plugin useful is pro version only.

Bought it, cannot get the software!

I would like to review this, having had my company just buy two licenses for the pro version. But we received no acknowledgement of the purchase, and they do not respond to any of our mails.

EDIT: In response to the below answer, I am unable to add a new entry, so am editing this.

I am not James, though sorry to hear others are having the same issues regarding support contact.

When the very high-limit credit card of our finance director was rejected at your checkout, you did not respond to my mails about it. When his assistant paid successfully for the product with her own credit card and we received no software or license keys, my assistant mailed you, and again you did not respond (that was last week).

You can try mailing me at [redacted], but I’d appreciate some quick action on this.
