Webtrends Analytics 9 Adminstration Guide, November 2012
The following example illustrates how to track clicks on a link that leads to a different site by activating the dcsMultiTrack function:
<a href="http://www.somedomain.com/folder/page_of_interest.html" onclick="dcsMultiTrack('DCS.dcssip', 'www.somedomain.com', 'DCS.dcsuri', '/folder/page_of_interest.html', 'WT.ti', 'Page%20of%20Interest');"> Page of Interest</a>
The same implementation can be used to track click frequency for link to download a file, such as a PDF file, Word document, sound file, or any other resource links included on the HTML page. The following example illustrates how the dcsMultiTrack function is used to report clicks to a PDF document:
<a href="/downloads/sales_brochure.pdf" onclick="dcsMultiTrack('DCS.dcsuri', '/downloads/sales_brochure.pdf', 'WT.ti', 'Sales%20Brochure');"> Download a Sales Brochure</a>
Using this code would return reports showing a URL at the same domain as the HTML page, with the file path /downloads/sales_brochure.pdf. If you have configured Webtrends to count files with extension “PDF” as downloads, then this appears in the Downloaded Files report. Depending on your page view determination configuration, this may also appear in the Pages report.
use Webtrends On Premises with the default configuration, this appears in the Downloaded Files report, but not the Pages report. Webtrends Analytics 9 includes this information in both reports.
It is possible to use general event handlers to track all links or all downloads for a page or site. However, this level of implementation is beyond the scope of this document. Before implementing dcsMultiTrack to track a specific link or download, check with your Webtrends administrator to verify if such an event handler is implemented on your site.
