Tracking clicks in Google Analytics

It’s possible to get insights into the number of people that actually click on the Call Now Button on your website. This is currently limited to websites that use Google Analytics to track their website’s visitors.

Event tracking

We can count click the Call Now Button through what GA calls Event Tracking. There’s a couple of different ways to set this up depending on the version of GA that you’re using and how you’ve integrated it on your website. The options are:

  • Classic Google Analytics (ga.js)
  • Universal Analytics (analytics.js)
  • Global site tag (gtag.js)
  • Or through Google Tag Manager

Integration through Google Tag Manager

If you’ve integrated through GTM the process for tracking button clicks is a little different. I’ve written a separate article for using GTM: Google Tag Manager: Event Tracking
