Cross Domain Goal Tracking in Google Analytics

 12:00 pm on Mar 22, 2010 (gmt 0)


Not sure if there is a solution to this but would be interested in finding out.
A client has a website www.example.com , which gives the option of an email signup. So you enter you email address on www.example.com and click "submit". You then get taken to [visitor.example.com...] for example, and you tick some preference boxes, then get taken to a confirmation URL page with http;//visitor.example.com

Is there any way of setting up a goal and tracking this?
Goals can't start on one domain and go to another, can they?

I was going to send the clients instructions on cross domain tracking from here:


But I'm not sure if it's the right way to go.....

make sure that you have the same analytics code on all pages involved. it works cross domain (at least i have it working like that with a merchants 'thanks you' page)

only thing is, once they complete email signup, they don't go back to www.example.com

you want to track the goal, not the total behaviour.
having the tracking code on the thank-you page presented when the email signup is completed, should be enough.

yeah, I have the conversion code on that page alright.

thanks all for your replies so far
