Track visitors from my email campaign in Google Analytics?

Postby Jobs for 14 » Sun Nov 09, 2008 3:27 am

I am attempting to filter visitors from my email campaign to track their basic visitor stats, site behavior, etc. My emails URLs are all tagged as they should be, however, I am not sure how to create a filter in the Google Analytics tool to parse out these visitors.

You could try creating a custom page for those that you've sent out the e-mail and then set a goal in Google Analytics for that.

This way you'll get to see how many are clicking but also they will feel special because of the custom page.

another thought is to create a unique id for the email link, so that when you look at the analytics code, you can sort by the unique id. Prevents having to spend the time and energy on creating a unique or special page for the visitor...

something like

page.html/?email_tracking_id

should do the trick.
