Question: Any good tutorial on using regular expressions? Some URL’s are dynamic, and I was told that we may need to use regualr expressions in setting goals.
Answer: That’s a good question, and you are right that you probably will need to use regular expressions for goal tracking with dynamic or cgi-generated URL’s. Try the Analytics help function and IQ center for help.
Let me know how it works out, as I have had clients really struggle with this as well.
