Hi Joost/any other gurus out there 🙂
I have an affiliate site and am using a redirect plugin to ‘hide’ specific outbound links. These links all begin (not to say cloaked!) ‘/play-‘. So far I am not seeing any pageviews/clicks for these links.
Have just changed from clicks to pageviews in advanced settings. “Track outbound clicks & downloads:” is checked and I have entered “/play-” in the internal links … field. I can see no change in page source code. Should I.
The links I want to monitor seem to differ slightly from the examples given in the Google Analytics for WordPress documentation, which all follow a folder structure style, as though they were using /%category%/%postname%/ custom permalink. Mine is just /%postname%/.
* Should it be possible for me to track my internal links as outbound?
* Is there anything specific I can do to make this happen?
* What kind of checks can I do to figure out what the problem is?
Cheers for any help received.
