In this video, I show you how to create an automatic meta redirect from one page to another in ClickFunnels.
You may find this useful if you are sending traffic to a page you don’t control, and so want to track how many people actually visit that page. With this redirect page, you will be able to add a pixel to it, therefore notifying you that someone clicked through to the next page via a pixel.
I am using a meta redirect here though, which isn’t recommended nowadays, however if you don’t have access to the website builder files, this is an acceptable way to redirect, especially if you add a button saying something like ‘click here if you aren’t redirected in 3 seconds’ or so.
Going straight to my redirect page in ClickFunnels, I first show you the code that needs to be added to the page so the redirect occurs.
That code is:
meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”3; url=https://yourusernamehere.clickfunnels.com/optinoy372n7g”/
(You need to add the triangle brackets to both ends as otherwise it’ll end up being an actual part of the code and this page will redirect you!!).
You can leave everything except 2 parts – the number and the URL.
The number indicates after how many seconds the redirect will take place.
So if you want to redirect the user in 5 seconds, set that number to 5 instead.
You would probably also want to have some sort of button or linked text below the progress circle image to allow users to click ‘here’ if they still aren’t redirected, just in case. So make sure the number you write down here matches the number you enter in the code.
Next, you need to enter the exact URL you want to send people to after they land on this redirect page.
Pretty straightforward, but make sure to set the URL exactly how you see it as and don’t get creative here – so if the URL you see says ‘http://mysite.com’, put THAT exactly in the URL spot – don’t write ‘www.mysite.com’ for example, or the redirect won’t work.
That’s pretty much it for the code part of it.
Now you just need to find some standard image indicating that they will be redirected soon, and so clients don’t get impatient and leave the page.
You can just type in ‘loading circle gif’ into Google images and pick up an image you like best. You may notice that they aren’t moving at the start, but when you actually click on these images, they will.
Just click on them, select ‘save image as’ and then upload it to ClickFunnels and use that image.
If you want more images, you can check out these two sites I mentioned in the video:
That should give you some more ideas and you would just follow the same process to get them added to your site.
