    Tracking outgoing clicks as goals (Google Analytics)


    I'm having some problem with tracking outgoing links as goals.

    I've added the google analytics code in the top of the page (within <head></head>)

    I have added this to the image-link I would like to track:
    onClick="javascript: pageTracker._trackPageview("/G1/click");"

    I have also added a new goal (exact match)
    URL: /G1/click


    Only problem is, that when clicking this image, nothing happends with the goals. I've tried it now for several days.


    What am I missing? Can I do this in any other way (I believe I need to use goals for this as I need to set a value for it and import it to AdWords).

    Please help me!

    Interesting. Is /G1/click showing up in your content section as one of the pages being viewed?
