    Hey guys, hoping to get some help. I'm wanting to track where my leads (aweber) are coming from with Google Analytics, i.e. social media sites, search engines (and what keywords), referring sites etc.

    I have set this up as a Goal and followed the basic set-up instructions to do so. In checking though I'm finding it's tracking information BUT there is no information for where the leads came from (i.e. facebook). I can see Visitors Profile and Browser Profile, but no traffic sources.

    Could anyone tell me how to get this part working with my Goal?

    Also, if I have my Aweber sign-up form on 10 different landing pages on the SAME website, do I need the Google Analytics tracking code on every page, or just the index page to track all leads?

    Thanks guys - hope someone can help.

    GA goals are meant to monitor specific URL's on your site. So for example checkout.php -> payment.php -> confirmation.php, you would define 3 pages in a goal and if the last page hits then the goal is completed. I'd look to customized reporting in GA to get the info you need.

    I'd put the tracking code on all your LP's. You could use a goal to track an aweber thank you page, then probably build a customized report to show the traffic sources for your LP's with another showing if the goal was met.

    Thanks bitmanx, I'll look into creating the custom report instead.
