    Register with google analytics, add your website and copy the code … go to Couponpress -> Google+ paste the analytics code. Enable event tracking and click Save. I am using Directorypress, I think the process is same for all the V7 themes.

    I understand how to get google analytics running, but I was looking to specifically track “View Coupons” as events/goals.

    Have added Google analytics on my site for years with no problems. Just added it to the Responsive theme and the code shows on the page. Is this temporary or any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Where are you inserting the code? Are you placing your code under admin > Theme Options > General Setup > General Settings > Misc > Website Analytics – into a box that says “Analytics Code Here” ?

    Kind regards,

    Harry: that seems to be a somewhat common wordpress problem. I have seen various websites with the tracking code showing up visually in the footer of a page. I am not sure what the fix is, but maybe worth some googling.

    Personally, my tracking code itself is working fine (I insert mine through Yoast’s google analytics plugin instead of through the theme). My issues is that I want to hits on individual “View Coupon” outgoing affiliate links as “goals”. This normally involves inserting javascript into the a-tag of the link that does an “onclick” action that communicates back to google saying, “hey, this outgoing link that someone just clicked counts as a goal”. I am planning to experiment with Google Tag Manager, but that may be overly complicated for my simple needs. Is there some easier way that I am missing.
    Binesh: where do you “enable event tracking” on the v7 theme?

    @David, did you ever get this sorted out? To track coupon clicks as goal in GA?

    How do you have tracking code hidden from a visitor view?

    It is appearing on my bottom left of my home page but I don’t know how to hide it.

    I added it in the MISC section.

    Thanks.

    Code won’t be visible to visitors. I haven’t faced such an issue on any of my websites. Did you edit the code? We are not supposed to make any changes to the code.

    As Binesh has shown, you need to include the full code not just your Analytics ID.

    Thank you, I think I got that. I have a lot of these little simple things I need to do like in this case a Google Analytics Snippet with my code. I just put in the basic snippet. One day, I may learn more. In the mean time, I need all the help I can get, I have somehow got over 2,300 subscribers and don’t have my newsletter set up properly and still need some design and coding tweaks done.

    But got some interest in what I’ve been doing to this point without too much help.

    Thanks.

    HI, Can you add a screenshot of added event tracking code for click on the ‘View Deal’ or ‘Coupon Button’ Click on Responsive CP theme v6.6.5 ? I have used the tracking code in the analytics box in the General Setup. But the event tracking codes are supposed to add in each affiliates link, that means Do I have to add the tracking code manually in each affiliate link ?

    What the Option ‘ON/OFF’ does for the Option ‘Google Event Tracking’ in the analytics box ?

    Does anyone use GATC to track affiliate link click ?

    Please share a Code format.
