A Page Visit Goal is the easiest goal to setup, and the only requirement is to have the Web Personalization code on the page.
How does it work?
Once a page is set as a goal, our system will count every unique visit to that page as a goal complete instance.
When should this be used?
Use this goal type in the following cases:
1. The process you are trying to improve on the site ends with the user reaching a Confirmation / Thank You page. Examples:
If your checkout process ends in a page like www.example.com/checkout/success
If your registration process ends in a page like www.example.com/registration/thank-you
If your sign up process ends in a page like www.example.com/signup/completed
2. Your goal is to increase traffic to a specific page / section of the site. Examples:
If you want to increase visits to your promotions page, i.e. www.example.com/promotions
If you want to increase visits to your latest blog post, i.e. www.example.com/blog/last-blog-post
How do I set this up?
1. When setting up your goal, select the Page Visit Goal.
2. Select the page you'd like to set as the goal, either from the list of pages the system recognized, or by entering the page manually.
When entering a page manually, only enter the path following the domain (i.e., only enter /checkout/success). Then click "select as custom URL".
If you'd like to set a group of pages as the goal (i.e. all product pages), use a wildcard - /product/*. Then click "select as custom path".
3. Name the Goal
The system will recognize this page once a user reaches it for the first time after it has been setup. At this point the goal's status will change to "Data Flowing".
Important - once a visitor reaches the page, the goal is considered "completed"
and reactions associated with this goal won't trigger again during the session.
What if my goal page is located on a different domain?
