    October 1, 2017 — Better data enables better decision making, and it begins with how you track it – to provide more context to what’s already out there. Event tracking is a feature of Google Analytics that allows site owners to trace actions on their site, even when a URL change is not recorded. Instead of only tracking page views, Event Tracking is a method available in the ga.js tracking code that you can use to record user interaction with website elements, such as a button click on your website. This is accomplished by attaching the method call to the particular UI element you want to track. During this session, you will learn how you can boost your WordPress website analytic using Event Tracking.
