I have a website where certain links will be PPC (pay per click) for different customers. I need help to set up a system in which I can count external clicks on certain links from my website and also group them according to customer. I want to use a free 3rd party service to count and categorize clicks from certain links in order to filter out clicks by bots etc. I am quite sure I would like to use Google Analytics events (perhaps including Google Tag manager) for this but I am open to suggestion.
My links look like this:
[login to view URL]
I can easily add parameters like /go-to-url?store=amazon-com
or "onclick" in the a href tag.
You do not need to (or must not) code anything in my project but rather just set up Google Analytics and explain to me how to set up the links in order to be counted.
I want the end result to be something like this:
[login to view URL] 5
[login to view URL] 4
and use Google Analytics to filter them by date etc.
