Help needed adding Google Analytic Events to anchor links

I need help to add event listeners to internal links to a model.

My code snippet looks like this:

<a id="deluxeBtn" class="deluxe" href="#" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'icon', 'deluxe'])"></a>

The href is an anchor tag which opens a model. It isnot registering as an event in Google analytics.

Out-bound links do register. What isthe reason? / Why the diference?

Any help is appreciated.


I think by default the Google Analytics disables tracking anchor tags. To enable it for the legacy tracking code, try the following : _uanchor = 1; and urchinTracker(val); and setting a value to variable _uanchor is the equivalent of calling method _setAllowAnchor when using the latest GA code base and also _setAllowAnchor is described on some reference Site of google.

Hope this helps you with an idea.

Below are the sample of Google analytics event tracking code for downloading a pdf file or software.


<a class="bttn_flat" href="/download.pdf" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackPageview', '/category/event-page']);">Download PDF</a>

Change the Download file url and page where you put the file

Hope this will help
