How to Track Popup Clicks in WordPress
WordPress users looking to track popup clicks on their sites have limited options. You can learn how to integrate your popups with Google Analytics. Yet another option is to comb through server logs after the fact. For anyone looking to monitor popup activity we suggest you check out our free plugin: WP Terms Popup.
Our plugin is primarily for those looking to present terms of service. It is also perfect for showing users privacy policies or basic announcements. No matter the content you can use WP Terms Popup and our Collector add-on to track button clicks.
Using WP Terms Popup to Track Clicks
The big feature of WP Terms Popup is gatekeeping. Website visitors can proceed after they interact with the popup. When a user declines your popup they are sent to an address of your choosing. Accepting removes the popup and allows the user to continue on reading your site content.
The base plugin, which you can download for free and install on your WordPress site, has all you need to create these gate keeping popups.
If you want to start monitoring and recording information about visitors who choose to accept your popups then you will have to use our Collector add-on.
What does Collector store?
Collector gives you the following details about your users after they hit your popup’s accept button:
- Agreement Date
- IP Address
- User Agent/Browser Details
- Page the Popup was Seen
- WordPress Username (if applicable)
- Agreement Expiration Date
WP Terms Popup has a specific “Collector” tab you can visit to view each record. You can review these records, search through them and delete them from your database at any time. Agreement click events are sent to Collector and recorded as they happen. You can get an in progress look at how your popups are being used at any time of the day.
