Last week, we wrote about how to install Google Analytics in WordPress, and we have received tons of questions from our users. One of the most commonly asked question was how to track links in WordPress using Google Analytics? Well in this article, we will show you how to track links in WordPress using Google Analytics. Before we answer that question, lets first talk about why would you want to track links in Google Analytics? The general idea people have about Google Analytics is that it tells you how many vistors and pageviews you are getting, where the traffic is coming from, and what content is popular on your website. All of that is correct. However, Google Analytics can also provide you information about what users do when they come on your website, which banners or links they click the most, what product placements are working better on your website, which social media campaigns are bringing you more traffic, etc. For example, let’s say that you have a page on your blog where you sell an ebook.

WordPress in many aspects requires as much attention as the operating system of your computer. One of the things that you should monitor regularly are the outgoing connections that the blog software or installed plugins make. This can not only be useful to detect malware before it is running rampant on the blog and affecting search engine rankings and the blog’s reputation, but also to make sure that plugins or scripts do not phone back home. Say you have installed a plugin that you really like, but noticed that it phones home whenever a blog article is updated. If there is no reason for that, you may prevent that from happening. The same can be true for other connections that are made by plugins, scripts or even WordPress itself. You can also use it to prevent regular connections from being made, say the pinging of specific destinations.
