Goals Navigation

Please fill out the first part:

Goals Basic Setup

  • Please leave the Active Box Ticked to keep the Goal Active.
  • Please enter a descriptive name for the Goal. Over time you are likely to have a large number of Goals so its easier to be as descriptive as possible for your Name.
  • Enter the Url of the page which identifies this goal (e.g. /download/thankyou.html) or if the goal is for the user to go to anther site (e.g. http://www.othersite.com/link.html) etc. You can also use * as a wildcard (e.g. http://www.othersite.com/download/*)
  • Select an icon from the list

Advanced Goal Settings

Goals - Advanced Settings

  • The Funnel has 5 settings as explained below
    • No Funnel –  means that the user only has to go the the page/link mentioned above
    • URL – The user has to go to this url first and then the final url mentioned above for this goal to be complete
    • Campaign – The user has to come from a specific campaign and go to the url for this goal to be complete
    • Search – The user has to search for the keyword and then go to the url for this goal to be complete
    • Referring Domain – The user has to come from a specific domain and go to the url for this goal to be complete
  • You can specify a revenue against the goal (e.g if this was a booking thank you page and the booking cost is $xx, then you can put that in here)
  • You can specify the cost (e.g if you are using a PPC campaign)
  • Exact match – Ticking this box will force the exact urls where entered (please leave this unchecked unless specified)
  • More than once – Ticking this box will mean a single visitor can register multiple goals by going to the same page twice or more (unless it is a purchase, we recommend leaving this unchecked)
  • Manual Goal – Please leave this unchecked unless you have a developer who is developing goals for you on the actual code of the site.

If you are creating a Goal similar to an existing Goal, it will be much easier to view how the previous Goal was setup before creating a new Goal.

Once complete, click on Submit and NetON Analytics will start registering this goal in real time.
