Google Analytics - exclude from stats if user clicks on a particular link when visiting home page

by Andy   Last Updated October 12, 2017 09:04 AM

I have a website for a web application which our company has built. Let's say the domain is https://www.example.com/

Many of our customers have bookmarked this. The navigation for the site features various URLs (all relative to https://www.example.com/). However, one of the links in the navigation is a URL to the web application login page, which resides on a subdomain, https://app.example.com/login.php

We have Google Analytics tracking code on www.example.com (but not on app.example.com).

What we're trying to do is figure out a way to exclude traffic in our stats for www.example.com if the user goes to the home page, and then immediately clicks on the application login link - in other words if the user visits https://www.example.com/ and then immediately clicks the link in the navigation that takes them to https://app.example.com/login.php.

Does anyone know if it's possible to do this?

The reason we want to do it is because it skews our statistics - for example it looks as though we get thousands of visitors to the home page of our site each day. Whereas in reality we think people have bookmarked it, go to it, and then immediately go to the login page on the subdomain.
