Google Analytics Goal URI in Wordpress

In self-hosted Wordpress, the URL of a page that I want to designate as a Goal in Google Analytics is www.mydomain.com/index.php/goalpage in the address bar.

The documentation for Google says that you should not include the domain in the setting for a Goal page. All of their examples however are like /goalpage.html of /goalpage.asp, with a file extension and actual page as opposed to mine which would be /index.php/goalpage or maybe just /goalpage, but that just doesn't seem right.

My question is what do I use for the Goal Page URI in this situation. Does this have anything to do with permalinks?

Thanks a ton.

use /index.php/goalpage

you actually have a file extension php at the end of the filename index.php - you just have extra querystring information after it

So, what is the answer to my question - what do I use for the Goal Page URI in this situation? It seems that /index.php/goalpage may be working, according to a test I just did.
