Referers - Campaign tracking only track the first click of visitors

Dear all,

I use the URL builder and create 3 different links (which link to 3 different pages in my website). Then I send 3 links to my friends and ask them to clicks (I’m testing the function).
However, I realize that Piwik only records the first link they clicks. In other words, when my friends click on link 1 first, then close link 1 after 1min reading, and click on link 2, then Piwik record link 1 only.

I’m using Piwik ver 2.0.2, and my website has the tracking code correctly added.
I would like to make Piwik records every time users click on any links in the campaign.
I have read some documents from Piwik, and I remembered somewhere that Piwik will record the second visit if the second visit comes after the first visit 30 minutes.

Anyone can explain for me why I got this, and suggest me some hints to fix this,
Many thanks,

Yes Piwik will track only one campaign per visitor.

Thanks Matt,
Is there any way to force Piwik to track every clicks in campaign? I really need that function.
Thanks in advance

This is a feature request, see: When a campaign changes, creates a new "visit" by default · Issue #2624 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub

Also you can work around this, see: How to - Analytics Platform - Matomo

Wow, thank you very much, Matt. I got it. Thanks again for your precise help. you are awesome :)-D

It’s a valid question. I have one campaign with multiple banners, and I want to know if a visitor clicked more than one banner. Apparently, PIWIK only registers first click and ignores the rest. This provides an incorrect banners clicks stats.

@geza maybe this helps? How do I create new visit whenever a user visits my website using a new campaign or a new website referrer? - Analytics Platform - Matomo
