    Setting goal values


    A pricecomparison website I made has 2 forms of income. First is of bannering (0.01 per pageview), a second one is from links people click which go to the desired store (0.15 per click). What I want to do is monitor these goals in analytics, but i'm having problems setting this up.

    First, I tried setting up the cpc for the redirect page (this is the page all outgoing links are redirected from). The URL for this page is: /Advertenties/Partner/?rij=8317 OR /Advertenties/Partner/?rij=400 (and so on). So I tryed making a goal with the URL: /Advertenties/Partner/* with a goal value of 0.15. This did not work, probably because it is a redirect page.

    Second, I have no idea how to set a goal value of 0.01 for every pageview...

    Hope you guys can help.

    Note: I mailed google about this, but their support is of such low quality, it doesnt seem to make any sense. I just get long autmated texts in return which also can be found on the website but do not help my situation as described above.

    Well, still nothing. I'm now really hoing you guys can help.

    1. For measuring the value of the redirect page I installed this goal in analytics (translated it myself from Dutch, so it may differ a bit ):

    - Active goal: turned on
    - Options for search words[?] : regular expression
    - Goal-URL [?] : /Advertenties/Partner/*
    - Goal name: Redirect page
    - Goal value: 0.15

    It seems to work (at least it registers that goals are made now, but I'm not sure if someone that visits redirect page http://www.example.com/Advertenties/Partner/?rij=10624 first, and then http://www.example.com/Advertenties/Partner/?rij=100 is measured twice. It should, because on average the clickvalue for each outgoing link is 0.15. Can anybody tell me if the goal is measured twice now? I.o.w. can the successrate in theory be larger then 100%?

    2. For the pageview measurement I did this on the goal page in analytics:

    - Active goal: turned on
    - Options for search words[?] : regular expression
    - Goal-URL [?] : /.*
    - Goal name: Turnover pageviews
    - Goal value: 0.007

    However, this seems to be slow and if im not mistaken it also counts the redirect page (goal 1) as a hit which should not be the case beacause there are no advertisements there..
