Event Tracking

This article walks you through installing event tracking on PDF and downloadable links, and accessing reports.

Event tracking allows you to track individual links, including PDF and downloadable files. This feature is especially useful for AJAX content, where pages don’t change but the content within them does.

 

How To Install Event Tracking

  1. Add the ONCLICK command (below in bold) to each internal or external link you wish to track.

    <a ONCLICK="VSCapture(‘page-name-here')" TARGET="new" HREF="http://www.domain.com/file.pdf">My PDF Download</a>

    Note: TARGET="new" is necessary for tracking to work properly.
