We should document all features of the goal tracking plugin in a simple one page documentation, including how to setup custom revenue through the javascript function call (currently missing see #774), how to track newsletter subscriptions, how to track downloads, etc.

See excellent use cases for the documentation on the page: http://www.webanalyticsworld.net/2009/03/10-must-track-google-analytics-goals.html

The documentation should for example explain how to: - identify which paid keywords do convert, from which campaigns/websites? - identify which paid keywords do NOT convert, from which campaigns/websites?

See also #517

Very Nice document.

I can start implementing this right now though I would just need a little help or chat with someone from the development side on what I need to pass through the tracker to get the information i need into the system.

Supplying the data based on conversion, eccomerce etc is no issue its just how I get it into your system that would be where I need a nudge on.

Currently I have HEAPS of sites making daily conversions that this can be tested on and produce instant results.

Who's up for it? :D

see current status of goal tracking plugin in #774

Another use case: - track as a goal when the user stays on site more than N seconds, see website optimizer doc as example

Matt do you think that is as a goal tracking element or under a conversion optimizing element?

Unsure where the line would meet on those two. As their goal optimizer is different from goal conversion tracking.

Optimizer is a split testing system used to test and track two or more variations in either A vs B variation or Taguchi style.

Nice system..... Ultimately getting functionality like that in here or most likely another diff app that ties in with PW would be sssswweeeetttt.

lol Marc

I was thinking that on content websites, it would be nice to define a Goal "Read articles" for example, which you would then trigger manually in your pages by recording a goal after 20seconds or so.

We should also link the "Goal create" form to the documentation that we will build showing various use cases of "advanced goals".

Documentation is now available at tracking Goals in Piwik web analytics
