If you want to find the value of your lead generation campaigns, then it is important to track form conversion.
Track form conversion, hmm🤔, but “how can I track form conversion in Google Analytics?”
That’s why in the article, I will show you how you can track your form conversion in Google Analytics.
Setting up your Google Analytics for form submission tracking can help you figure out where your form users are coming from, so you can make data-driven decisions that increase your conversion.
How to track form conversion in Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a free web analytics service, but there is a catch. For using Google Analytics, you need to set up some tracking code on your WordPress website and if you are not familiar with coding, it may be difficult sometimes.
If you have one or more forms on your site and all the forms are placed in different locations on your site, then it can be even more tedious.
That’s why we here we are going to use MonsterInsights, the best Google Analytics plugin for any WordPress website. It will automatically track all your form conversions as events without messing with code and manual goal setup.
Read my MonsterInsights review to learn more about its advanced features.
Their Pro plan starts from $199/year, which is a great deal if you compare the price with the features you get with it.

Step-1. Install and activate MonsterInsights
After the purchase, log into your MonsterInsights account and download the plugin. It will download as a zip file.

That’s about how you can activate MonsterInsights’ premium license. So, let’s jump to the next step, where we are going to install the Forms Addon.
Step- 2. Install the Forms Addon
For tracking your form conversions, you will need to install the Forms Addon, which you get from Insights > Addons, and install the addon.
Once the plugin is installed, the button will change to say Activate. Go ahead and click the Activate button to make sure the addon is active and ready to use.

Step -3. Knowing the source of your form’s lead
We already set up form conversion tracking in Google Analytics using MonsterInsights. But if you want to know which source drove the most leads to your site, then you need to go to your Google Analytics account.
Once you have logged in to your Google Analytics account, click on Behavior > Events > Top Events and then you can see your forms as an event category, so click on that.
Next, click on the Event Action button to view the number of impression and conversion.
Since we want to view the source of people that have completed the form, click on conversions. And after doing it, you can see all the forms filled by your users. Click that form if you want to know its source.
Once you’ve selected a form, the next thing to do is use the secondary dimension.
You can do that by clicking on the Secondary dimension dropdown menu and then select Source / Medium.
Now it will show you all the sources from where your visitors come from who submitted your form.
Here you could see where your traffic comes from like they come directly on your site or someone refers them.
If you want, you can also use the advanced filter option to filter your data, like if you only see the source of your traffic from referring, simply click on the advanced button.
After, select Include > Source / Medium > Containing and then enter referral in the last field. Once you’ve entered these details, click Apply.
The filter will now only display referral sources for your completed forms.
Now you know how you can track form conversion and also the source of your completed forms.
