    Absolutely, I’d be happy to help you understand how this works in Google Analytics 4 (GA4). GA4 has a new way of analyzing and reporting link clicks which makes it easier to monitor outbound links. To track clicks on a specific link like ‘/cgi-bin/abdl.cgi?abc.com’, you would set up a new ‘Event’ in GA4. This event will then record every time a visitor clicks on that particular link.

    To see how many people clicked the link, you would navigate to the ‘Events’ section in your GA4 dashboard and look for the event you set up earlier. There, you can see the number of times that event (the link click) occurred.

    If you want to know which day they are clicking the link, you can use the ‘Date Range’ filter at the top of the ‘Events’ page. This allows you to analyze data for a specific date, or a range of dates. Through this, you’ll be able to see how many link clicks happened on each day within your chosen date range.

    It might be worth considering asking a technical expert or doing a bit of extra research to help you with the setup and detailed analysis, but this should give you a basic rundown of how to track outbound link clicks and associated data in GA4.
