Thank you page - Looping through jotform / Google Analytics goalsAsked by Brennon24 on February 20, 2014 at 01:02 PM
I have two forms running on this site:
One on this page: http://treehouselodge.com/availability.html
One on all other pages: http://treehouselodge.com/rates.html
We are having a problem tracking the form submissions in Google Analytics. I have both forms going to the following thank you page in order to track for conversions: http://treehouselodge.com/thankyou.html
For some reason, all of the conversions on the site say they are coming from this url: submit.jotformpro.com
This leads me to believe that when someone is submitting a form it is actually taking them to jotformpro.com for a split second and then returning them to the thank you page. Is there a way to fix this problem?
Thanks, Jake Garrett
Perhaps the referrer widget can solve your problem. This widget will return the information about the website where the form is embed. You need to insert it in both your forms:
Let us know if the problem still persists.
Great. I will try that. Thank you. -Jake
I went through and implemented the "get referrer" widget to my forms, but
the problem still persists. The problem is not about tracking the page on
the website that the submission is coming from. The problem is that I can
not see the source of traffic that is responsible for the form submission
i.e. google organic, google cpc, yahoo organic, etc... I have attached a
screenshot of my analytics account to demonstrate the problem. As you will
see, google analytics for this site shows that over the past month 112 of
the total 117 leads (form submissions) have come from the referring
website: submit.jotformpro.com This of course is not true and the leads
are actually coming from a combination of the other sources: google
organic, direct, groupon, etc... This leads me to believe that somehow
when people are submitting the form it is looping through the url
submit.jotformpro.com and then coming back to the thankyou page.
The form on this page receives the most submissions:
There are additional forms on most pages of the site. This problem is
happening regardless of which form is submitted.
Hope you can help. Also, it would be great to talk to someone about this if
possible. My phone number is below.
Please try to add ?utm_nooverride=1 to the end of your form Thank You URL, so the URL will be:
I hope it will solve the issue in Google Analytics.
Thank you. I will try that and let you know. -Jake
I tried that but my "referrer" in Analytics is "submit.jotformpro.com"
What I think Brennon is trying to do is the same thing I'm trying to do. I want to be able to backtrack in Analytics to find out what keywords brought people to fill out my form. But if I have the "Thank You" page as a "goal" in Analytics the referrer is always jotform ... so there's no way to for me to find out what keywords brought them to my site in the first place.
Any idea how I can fool it?
