Do you need to track a click event on your website? Then you have come to the right place. Event tracking enables you to track anything on your website that requires a click. This could be a eBook download or how many times a link is clicked. Just follow the steps below and in a few seconds my Google Analytics event tracking code generator will give you the code you need to use to set this up. The generator is compatible with Asynchronous and Universal Analytics types of tracking. Make sure you select the correct tracking type otherwise the event tracking won’t work.

Category – Name for group of events e.g. “contact”.

Label This is optional but if you wish to label your actions use this. For example “quickquote a”.
Value This is optional but if you want the event to have a numerical value associated to it enter it here.
Count As Bounce If Event Occurs? If a user visits your website and only views one page but an event happens should it be treated as a bounce?
