How to track clicking of a button in Google Analytics

This article presents the example of JavaScript-code. The code should be placed in the main file of your current active theme scripts. If you don't know where to paste JavaScript-code you can use a special plugin.

Don't forget to connect Google Analytics to your website.

It is recommended to add unique CSS-class to the shortcode you are going to track. You can make, for example, it in the following way:

[su_button class="my-custom-button"] Click Me [/su_button]

Now you can use the following JavaScript code:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
  // Handle button click
  $('body').on('click', '.my-custom-button', function() {
    setTimeout(function() {
      // Track event in GA
      ga('send', {
        hitType: 'event',
        eventCategory: 'Buttons',
        eventAction: 'clicked',
        eventLabel: 'Shortcodes Ultimate Campaign'
    }, 100);
