Google Analytics Event Trigger For How Far Down A Page A User Has Read
A script that adds events to Google Analytics to show how far down the page a user has read.
This script works for sites using the older analytics.js setup for Google Analytics but I haven't tried it with the newer Google Tag Manager script.
To read my blog post about how it works go to my blog post on the topic
To find the event information on Google Analytics:
You can find Events on the Google Analytics by starting from the reports page (the default view of your site information) then go to Behavior > Events > Top Events where you'll see the events listed. If you leave this script as-is, you will see Blog Posts listed. If you click on that you will see the "Event Action" User Read listed. Clicking on that will take you to the listing of the percentage amounts.
To change the event information:
Currently it will fire an event category of
Blog Posts and the action is
User Read then broken out into the different lengths down the page. If you want it to show up differently, change
Blog Posts and
User Read to whatever you choose.
