Tabber & On Page Analytics

Post by NickB » Fri Jul 18, 2014 1:08 pm

Has anybody found a way to track clicks on tabs in Google Analytics (or other web analytics SW or raw log files)?

We need to understand which (if any) and in what quantity the tabs are actually being selected.

Any suggestions?

I've no experience of this and I imagine it would require a good bit of skilled work.

If you're using the jQuery based Tabber then you could perhaps use the "activate" event to call Google Analytics. You'd also need to find a way to pass in the product ID or name and detect the text content of the clicked tab.

See http://api.jqueryui.com/tabs/ for the Tabs API.
