It appears WordPress SEO does not support Google Analytics’ enhanced link attribution functionality.
Fundamentally, it allows webmasters to:
a) See separate click information isolated for multiple links on a page that all have the same destination
b) see when one page element has multiple destinations
All are VERY helpful to understand usability – especially when menus duplicate page links.
The requirements are simple:
1) Add a checkbox in WordPress SEO admin to flag if user wants Enhanced Link Attribution turned on.
2) If the option is selected, the following code:
var pluginUrl =
_gaq.push([‘_require’, ‘inpage_linkid’, pluginUrl]);
is added to the current Google Analytics code between the following lines:
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
[INSERT NEW CODE HERE]
Would think this is a no-brainer and about 5 minutes of work if you stop to grab a cup of coffee and take a pee in the process…
Here is the link to Google’s description of the functionality: https://support.google.com/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&utm_id=ad&answer=2558867
