Support » Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights » Internal links to track as outbound 2

  • 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.

  • I’m having the same issue. I’d love to hear an answer on this. I’ve gotten it to work tracking links as page views but not as events.
