The URLs for each step in by Defined Funnel Path are identical. How can I track each step as if it were a unique URL?

You may wish to track visitors' progress through a funnel which has the same URL for each step. For example, your sign up funnel might look like this:

  • Step 1 (Sign Up)
    • www.mysite.com/sign_up.cgi
  • Step 2 (Accept Agreement)
    • www.mysite.com/sign_up.cgi
  • Step 3 (Finish)
    • www.mysite.com/sign_up.cgi

To get around this, you can call the urchinTracker Javascript function within each step (probably within an onload event), as follows:

  • urchinTracker("/funnel_G1/step1.html")
  • urchinTracker("/funnel_G1/step2.html")
  • urchinTracker("/funnel_G1/step3.html")

Then, set up each step of your funnel to be:

Note that the path/filename argument to urchinTracker() need not represent an existing path or filename. The argument to urchinTracker simply provides a made-up pagename to which Urchin can attach pageviews.
