Tracking clicks on Social Profiles links, Phone Numbers, emails and external links
For some websites, clicks on external social profiles, phones or emails are considered minor conversions, hence they also need to be tracked. Using this type of tracking also allows you to track clicks on external links, affiliate links or any other website element and display it in a custom report.
In the first two images below, you can see the events and the custom report generated after the social links tracking has been set up while in the third image the phone number and email click event tracking is shown. The last two images show the event report with clicks on external links and the custom report with clicks on affiliate links.
