    Absolutely, I can guide you on how to accomplish this with Google Analytics 4 (GA4). You’ll want to create an event that triggers when someone clicks on that specific link.

    Firstly, you’ll go to your GA4 property and select ‘Configure’ in the bottom left, then click on ‘Events’. After that, click ‘Create Event’ and give it a clear name like ‘Outbound Click’. Next, select ‘Add condition’ and in the parameter name, put ‘page_location’ and for match type, select ‘contains’ and finally in the value string, put ‘/cgi-bin/abdl.cgi?abc.com’, this tells GA4 to fire this event when that specific link is clicked.

    Once you’ve created this event, you can then go back to your main dashboard and go to ‘Engagement’, then ‘Events’. Here you should see the event you created and when you click on it, you can see data such as event count and engaged sessions. To see on which days the link was clicked, select ‘Dimensions’ and then ‘Date’.

    Remember, due to data processing times, there may be a delay before you start seeing data for new events. I hope this helps! If you need any more guidance, don’t hesitate to ask.
