But may my trusted warrior forum friends can help...
I'll explain my situation as best as i can.
I need help tracking specific links from multiple sources that lead to one conversion page.
i have a blog that follows this path: blog opt-in > confirmation email > download page
I have a squeeze page that follows this path: squeeze page opt in > confirmation email > download page.
I use a combination of paid traffic and article distribution (syndication). so i have to include sub-id's on each link so that i will know exactly where the traffic is coming from.
but how will i track which traffic source actually made it from the opt in form to the download page and its conversion rate???
Im thinking about doing this.
For each link that i need to track, create a special link using pretty links to track the hits with that link. then setup goals within google analytics -- but that will only tell me how much of the traffic converted (went on to the download page).. but it doesnt break down which traffic source converted???? does it???
for instance if i send ppc traffic, organic seo, and article traffic..wont it all just say ORGANIC traffic? Where as I need specific details?
What are you all doing to combat this issue..
P.S. I hope this makes sense.
