Track ZIP Code Searches as Events in Google Analytics

With Mapply, you can integrate it with Google Analytics to track your customer's searches.

This will create a new event every time someone performs a search. The Action will be ZIP-Search, and the Label will be the actual ZIP Code.

 Caution

At this time, Mapply is unavailable for new installations. If you are currently using Mapply, you will be able to continue using the app as your account will now be grandfathered.
