I just started to use Piwik, but can’t find support for event tracking. I found some forum posts, but the only thing that seem to work is using Goals for different events and conversions as a counter for how many times some event happened.
What I thought of:
Use custom variables
Why it doesn’t work: you have to set them and then call trackPageView for each event on a page (this will make page view counter incorrect)
Create separate goal for each event and call _paq.push([‘trackGoal’, 1]); each time some event happens. This will log a conversion for that goal, so number of conversions would mean number of events that correspond to that goal.
Is there any other (more proper) way to make this work?
