The ‘Page events’ metric shows the number of times any link tracking call was made. This metric is helpful when you want to understand which pages have the most engaging content. Measurement for this metric is most valuable when a visitor can perform an action on the page without navigating to a new page.
This metric counts all link tracking calls (
tl()) in a report suite. All link types are included (custom links, download links, and exit links). It does not include page view tracking calls (
tl()), and excludes page view tracking calls (
t()). Page views is the opposite; it counts the number of page view tracking calls, and excludes links.
