Let's start

You can also use Click All Elements matches CSS selector in GTM to Target those clicks using other attributes like alt text, href or any other attribute along with any attribute from the ancestors to track clicks.

Matches CSS Selector can be used with any click or form submission to easily track by moving up or down of DOM. If you wish to track any element or link clicks that contains a specific attribute like href or alt, you can use matches css selector to easily track click on them.
