WP Google Analytics Events

Track Google Analytics Events on your website - Enables you to send an event when a user Scrolls or Click an element on your website.

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

FAQ

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.
