Tracking specific events with Universal tag script


#1

Hello,

I have installed your universal tag script on our website for conversion tracking, but I would like to also track specific events such as a click on a button.

Is it possible?

It does not look like from your documentation, and the single events seem to be only working with a landing page behind the click of the button, which is not the case for my website.

Kind regards,

Yves

Hi @Yves,

The Universal Website Tag is meant for use across the entire website where tailored audiences or conversion events can be tracked using URL rules such as URL contains: “/products/glassware” to accumulate audience or know that users are hitting that part of your site after engaging with ads.

In the case where you want to track a button click. The single event tag is the right method to track that action. Single event tags don’t need a URL in order to track, they track when the code executes. I assume the button click can execute a function onclick containing either JS or image pixels, which would solve your ask.
