Monitor the clicks and visits your Linkin.bio page generates over time with Later or Google Analytics
With your Linkin.bio page helping you drive more sales and traffic from your Instagram to your product pages, it’s important to monitor the clicks and visits your Linkin.bio page generates over time. That way you can see if your audience is engaging with your posts and interested in learning more about the products and content you host on your feed.
Start by tracking the total number of visits, clicks, and average click per post coming from your Linkin.bio page with your Instagram Analytics. Then use Google Analytics to track the revenue and sales coming right from your Instagram!
Step 1: Go to Instagram Analytics Dashboard
Go to your Analytics Dashboard from Later on the web and select the Instagram account you'd like to view analytics for.
Step 2: View Linkin.bio Engagement Overview
See your Linkin.bio analytics for the last 3 months.
From your Analytics dashboard, you can select a date range and get an overview of the performance of your Linkin.bio over time. From the dashboard, you can see:
- Linkin.bio clicks: The total number of times someone clicked on any post in your Linkin.bio page
- Page Views: The total number of unique times your Linkin.bio page was viewed
- Click-through %: The percentage of clicks on your Linkin.bio page against the number of page views
You can also see Linkin.bio clicks for your 5 best performing posts from the last 30 posts, in the last 3 months.
Step 3: Track Total Number of Clicks Per Post
To take a deep dive into which of your posts are performing the best, toggle to the Post Performance tab of your Analytics Standard. Track the total number of clicks each of your posts get on your Linkin.bio column. (Free plans will see Linkin.bio clicks for the last 30 posts only.)
Important: If you have multiple links set up for one Linkin.bio post, this will display the total number of clicks those links have received!
Tip: Look at the post with the most clicks and see if there’s a correlation between the number of clicks and the product/content you shared or the type of caption you used. This information should give you some guidance on how to optimize your future Instagram posts to get the most engagement.
Tip: You can also see your Linkin.bio clicks on each post on your Linkin.bio management page. Only linked posts from the last 3 months will show Linkin.bio clicks.
With Google Analytics you can also track your eCommerce sales to see how much money you’ve made from your Instagram account. To help you do this, Later will automatically generate a unique UTM Campaign parameter to track your clicks, sales and conversion rates coming from your Linkin.bio page.
Your Unique UTM Campaign parameter will be composed of:
Example: later-linkinbio-burrardbeauty for the Instagram handle @burrardbeauty
