In my previous post I discussed how to Set Up Goals in Google Analytics. As some of you may know, a Google Analytics account only allows you to setup up 20 goals. Well what if you need to measure more than 20 goals? The answer is to add more views in your Google Analytics property, and the set up is quite simple. Google Analytics now allows you to have up to 50 views per property; meaning, you can now measure up to 1,000 distinct goals using the original Google Analytics code that was installed on your site!
Steps to Setting Up Additional Views
1. Once logged into Google Analytics, navigate to the View Settings under Admin.
2. To add a new view, select “Create new view” from the drop down menu. If you want to copy the current view to preserve filters and other settings, select “Copy View”.
3. Name your new view. It helps to name the view for the type of goals you are measuring. Example – E-Power Marketing Newsletter Signups.
4. You have now set up a new view under your original property allowing you to track up to 20 more goals! Now all you need to do is set up Google Analytics Goals.
