    Because links that lead away from your site are not automatically tracked by Google Analytics, you will need to manually tag all outbound links you want to track. To do this, you'll add some JavaScript customizations to your page and to the links you want to track.
    • First, delay the outbound click by a fraction of a second.
    • Next, revise outbound links to call the new function without first following the link.
