Capture · Tracking triggers

The Onesecondbefore JavaScript library is only built for tracking to keep it as tiny as possible. This page explains how to place triggers in combination with the Onesecondbefore tracking library.

/* Onesecondbefore Capture Start */
!function(){"use strict";var e,t,n,s,c;e=window,t=document,n="osb",e.$OSB_QUEUENAME=n,
e[n]=e[n] || function () {
        (e[n].q = e[n].q || []).push(arguments)
}, s = t.createElement("script"),
c=t.getElementsByTagName("script")[0], s.async = 1,
s.src="https://storage.googleapis.com/onesecondbefore/js/osb.min.js",
c.parentNode.insertBefore(s,c)}();
/* Onesecondbefore Capture Finish */

    </script>
    
  • Customize the tracking code as you see fit.
  • Add the trigger, by clicking on the section below Tag Configuration
  • Add the trigger: All pages

The tag triggers when a visitor clicks on a link leaving the website.

Put the code below in the source code of your page to track exit links. Replace the example domains in the regular expression for your own. Rule of thumb is that all domains with Factbase tracking should not be tracked as an exit link.

<script>
var comp = new RegExp('(www.mydomain.com|www.mydomain2.com)');
var links = document.getElementsByTagName('a');
for (var i = 0, i < links.length; i++) {
     if (links.[i].href && !comp.test(links[i].href)) {
         links[i].onclick = function() {
             osb('send', 'event', {
                 category: 'Exit links',
                 action: 'click', 
                 label: this.href
             });
         }
     }
}
</script>

Customize the tracking code as you see fit.
