Event Tracking Not Working. Is it because of Traditional GA Code?

Discussion in 'Google Analytics' started by todawaladitya, Mar 7, 2012.

    I have traditional GA Code on my website. Recently I implemented event tracking code on image to track clicks on that image. Its a mailto link. Here is the event tracking code implemented

    <a href="mailto:marketing@kensingtonretirement.com?subject=Website Inquiry" onClick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Content CTAs', 'Click', 'Contact Us']);"><img src="images/contact_home.png" width="215" height="94" border="0" /></a>

    I guess there is no problem with this code but in my opinion it doesn't works with traditional GA code which is installed above closing body tag.
    It would be great if someone could point out the exact problem. Should I migrate to asynchronous GA Code? I searched a lot but there is no information if event tracking works with traditional GA code or not.

    Thanks in advance.
