I’ve gotten a sudden increase in email sign-ups. They don’t appear to be spam. They’re all on my home page (https://hooshmand.net), using the standard Ghost opt-in, so i don’t know what is bringing these people to my blog. I track the source URL, and it’s all just the home page (not some post).
Context: Historically I got ~1 sign-up a day, and over the last week this leapt to 3-7 every day. I also want to know what I’m doing right, if anything. There has been no commensurate increase in traffic, page views to any specific page, increase in a specific source, changes to anything else actually, etc… I published one blog post but it hasn’t even received traffic yet.
Traditionally on GA to identify causes of things like this, I set up a “goal” on a destination page. This could be the “confirmed” page or the double opt-in page.
On Ghost, sign-ups are sent to
/subscribe/. Where is this page generated? How can I manage its content? (and format, for that matter) I can’t see it in the
hbs files. And most importantly: how can I set up GA to track opens of this page?
What I did: Set up goals for email sign-up to /subscribe (or /#subscribe), and got 0 data, both when testing it in GA, and when doing test sign-ups.
If it’s too beta for this… that’s fine. Let me know
