To track the "submit" button using Google Analytics, you can follow these steps:

  1. Set up Google Analytics: If you haven't already, create a Google Analytics account and set up your website or app property.
  2. Get the tracking code: Go to your Google Analytics property settings and find the tracking code. Copy the tracking code snippet.
  3. Add the tracking code to your website or app: Paste the tracking code snippet just before the closing tag on every page where you want to track the submit button.
  4. Set up an event tracking goal: In your Google Analytics account, go to the "Admin" section and select the relevant property and view. Under the "View" column, click on "Goals".
  5. Create a new goal: Click on the "+New Goal" button and select "Custom" as the type of goal. Then click "Continue".
  6. Configure the goal details:
  • Goal description: Provide a name for your goal, e.g., "Submit Button Tracking".
  • Event condition: Choose "Event" under "Type" in the goal details section.
  • Event conditions: Fill in the appropriate details to match your submit button.
  • Category: Enter a category name that best represents the submit button, e.g., "Form Submission".
  • Action: Enter a meaningful action or label for the submit button, e.g., "Submit".
  1. Save the goal: Click on "Save" to create the goal.


Once the tracking code and goal are set up, Google Analytics will start tracking whenever the submit button is clicked on your website or app and record it as an event. You can then view the event data in the "Behavior" or "Conversions" sections of Google Analytics to analyze the performance of the submit button.
