WP Google Analytics Events – My new WordPress plugin

I’m happy to announce my new WordPress plugin, WP Google Analytics Events.

Most of the current plugins will allow you to track page navigation events. If you need to track events on the same page, you will have to manually edit the page or theme. WP Google Analytics Events allows you to track events such as video clicks and scrolling to a certain point on the page.
The plugin can been very useful with tracking visitors and understanding how they move through your sales funnel. In this scenario, you can see if a user scrolled to your pricing table or clicked on your product tour video. The information may help you A/B test new features without rewriting code.

To use the plugin, install it from the wordpress.org directory and go to the settings page.
In the settings page:

  • Add your google analytics tracking id
  • Create Scroll events by specifying the target element’s id or class
  • Create Click events by specifying the target element’s id or class
  • Classify each event by category, action and label

Administration Page
wp-ga-events1

To test it, open up the Google Analytics real time menu and select “Events”.
Now, refresh your website and start clicking and scrolling on the elements that you configured previously.

This is how it looks with Google Analytics Real Time tracking

    Hi Yuval, thanks for your plugin. I managed to installed it and see by Google Analytics Real Time Tracking that is working but here comes my doubt: When I visit the Conversions Tab there is no activity and the Goal does not appear. Any suggestions?

      Are you still having this issue?
      If so, can you please send me an email showing the goal settings?

  • Sonja Meyer

    Hi Yuval,
    Can you please help out a novice? I have installed your plugin but can’t work out how to find the element id or class of an image banner in wordpress. I am displaying a banner on my homepage that I’d like to track. Do I have to somehow set the id myself or is it automatically generated by wp when I upload the media file? Where can I find it? Thanks! Sonja

    • YuvalO

      Hi Sonja,
      If the element doesnt have a class or id attribute, you will need to add it manually (on the free plugin).
      Can you send me a link to the website so I can take a look? You can use the contact form or just reply here.

      Yuval
