I posted several of different product links to my shop on social media. Now I would like to see the pages the visitors click on for each of that link separately.

Eg. If 10 visitors clicked my link to product page (the link I posted on social media) then I I could see that 6/10 of those visitors go to checkout page (my “buy” button leads to checkout page). On second link 5 visited and 3/5 clicked to checkout page or any other page (I would see unique clicks for those pages)

This is very useful to me because I have multiple of product links and would like to see if visitors are clicking “buy” button (going to checkout page and beyond), so if need be I can improve the product page to increase conversions.

Note: All my products have to use the same checkout page.

See utm_content here:
[support.google.com...]

In other words, tag your links with utm_content=link1 and utm_content=link2 (in addition to using the required utm_source, utm_medium, utm_campaign tags).

I complicated the description a bit... I'm using url shorteners to track visit link clicks, so I don't need that although this is a better way of tracking that info.

I have GA plugin installed on my website and I can see all information (page views,location,OS etc.) but it's all mixed up eg. I have 5 clicks on product page 1 and 5 clicks on product page 2 and then 7 clicks on checkout page (both product pages share same checkout page and there is no way I can change that).

So, out of those 7 clicks 4 MIGHT be from product page 1 and 3 from product page 2. I would like to know for certain what number of clicks have come to checkout page separately from product page 1 and product page 2

Are you using the plugin to view analytical data or logging in directly to Google Analytics?

You can use Goal Funnels in Google Analytics to measure a successful action and the path people took to get there. With that in place, you can get a better idea of what channels (organic, paid, email, social media, etc) have resulted in sales.

Some examples of goals: [support.google.com...]

If you go to [analytics.google.com...] and login with the same Google Account, you'll be able to see much more data. :)

You're right. Thank you. I've watched some videos on goal funnels and that's exactly what I need. But there is on external link in the funnel will GA still count that link as well?
My funnel: Product page>Checkout page (shipping information)> External link > Thank you page.

In GA there is already something like funnel and it users flow. The only thing that I'm not tracking are clicks to external site (right after shipping information). Anyway to track those clicks?

Is that an external payment gateway or something like that?

You will want to look into Cross Domain Tracking [support.google.com] - that will solve your problem. It basically allows Analytics to pass the data from your site > external > back to your site.

I think it's some weird changing url (I guess it changes depending on location), so I was thinking maybe if it's possible to just count clicks on it, perhaps by shortening it with goo.gl and add that shortened link to cross domain, think that might work? I really just need for click to be counted (for it to be 3rd funnel, before "thank you" page) I don't care if it will be show like "2nd interaction"
