Actually no. At “pages” report you may see total visits of certain page. But I need to know from which banner user came to this page!
I have two URLs (raw and SEO) that leads to one page:
First URL is constant (canonical?) and doesn’t ever changes. Second URL depends from publication date, which can be changed (if some information was updated and republished again). When I visit constant URL, site makes 301 redirect to SEO URL, which is actual at present.
If I have banners to this article, I prefer to put constant URL in links, as I don’t need to update each banner if article will be renewed. Therefore I can distinguish visits to destination article which was maid from banner (via constant URL) from direct visits (from site menu via SEO URL). But because I can’t track 301 redirect (at referrer I see start page, but not constant URL), I want to track clicks on constant URL. Alternatively, tracking clicks on images, which located in special DIV sections, also will be nice. But I don’t know how to filter reports.
At present there two ways i see:
- As Fabian Dellwing proposed - to imitate inner links as download (or outer) links.
- Add utm_source param to links. This more efficient way, but needs sites code change.
