DNN comes with a built-in module "Google Analytics" for web analysis. You can find it under Admin > Google Analytics in every DNN installation. Setting it up is easy: Just enter your Google Analytics Tracking ID and your page views will be tracked. You can optionally disable tracking of admins (which is quite useful as you probably don't want to distort your reports). Evoq Content - DNN's enterprise version - comes with "Google Analytics Professional". In addition to DNN's standard module, the Professional version features options for segmentation.
However, DNN and Evoq are limited to page view tracking. Tracking events such as downloads, search requests, and dead links (404) is not possible with either of them. This is why we developed
DNN Google Analytics Advanced.
Below you can find information about how to install DNN Google Analytics Advanced in your DNN environment and a short introduction about the events that will (automatically) be tracked after the setup is complete.

That's it. All supported events will be tracked in realtime now. You can view these events under Real-Time > Events. Historical events can be viewed under Behavior > Events.

The following properties are sent to Google Analytics in the tracking events:
Tracking search requests
All search requests submitted from the search page and from the quick search in the header bar are tracked in realtime without configuration - independent from the site or module they are contained in.
Tracking 404 requests (resource not found / dead link)
All 404 requests are tracked in realtime without configuration - independent from the site or module they are contained in.
