    I have installed simpe url a couple of days ago and followed the instructions here http://yoast.com/affiliate-links-and-seo/, everything seems ok besides the fact that i cant see any events in google analytics. I can see there are clicks for my affiliate lins in simple url but nothing is showing up under Content > Event Tracking > Categories.

    Also when I change from overall events to unique Events in google analytics, i can see a spike in but there is still no event recorded, it is just the line in the graph.

    Can anyone help me please, i am completely confused .

    I am having this same issue-
    From what i've read, the event does not register if the link is loaded before the mouse button is released-

    supposedly this can be solved by changing the onClick to onMouseDown
    in the javascript for the event tracking, but aside from manually inserting it in your page with html, I believe the creator would have to update from his end.

    i've tried modifying the plugin via the dashboard
    plugins -> editor ->
    select plugin to edit "google analytics"
    and select google-analytics-for-wordpress/frontend/class-frontend.php
    find and replace all 8 instances of "onclick" with "onmousedown"

    and hit update file...

    it looks as though the source for all my pages is updated properly, but I have to wait 24 hours to see if the tracking is working properly- i'll update you when i know
