To set up AJAX call tracking in Google Analytics, follow these steps:
- Make sure you have Google Analytics set up on your website. If you haven't done this already, create a Google Analytics account and install the tracking code on your website.
- Identify the AJAX calls on your website that you want to track. These are typically asynchronous requests made by your website to the server without reloading the entire page.
- Modify your AJAX calls to send an event to Google Analytics when the AJAX request is made. You can do this by adding the code below after your AJAX call:
ga('send', 'event', 'category', 'action', 'label');
Replace 'category', 'action', and 'label' with relevant information about your AJAX call. For example, 'category' could be the type of AJAX call (e.g., form submission), 'action' could be the specific action (e.g., submit), and 'label' could be additional information (e.g., the form ID).
- Test your AJAX tracking by performing the action that triggers the AJAX call and checking Google Analytics Real-Time reports or the Events section in the Behavior report.
- Optionally, you can set up custom dimensions or metrics to track additional information about your AJAX calls. For example, you can set up a custom dimension to track the page URLs where the AJAX calls are triggered.
- Analyze the data in your Google Analytics reports to gain insights into how users interact with your AJAX calls and optimize your website accordingly.
