    How to add utm source to an link so i can track number of visitors comming?



    QUESTION

    Hello,

    i found some people adding "?utm_source=XYXY" after their banner links or other links. I assume it has to do with Google analytics visitor tracking, so I want to ask how i can use it to track number of visitors who clicked that link? Thank you

    UTM URL BUILDER

    Update: here is the UTM url builder: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?rd=2

    EXAMPLE UTM URL

    According to above article, when i add link to external website, it can be like:

    http://mydomain.com/subpage.php?utm_source=site_from_which_im_linking&utm_medium=websitelink&utm_content=textlink&utm_campaign=2015campaign

    &utm_campaign= IS NOT REQUIRED URL PARAMETER

    MORE EXAMPLES

    Another example Analytics UTM URLs:
    ?utm_source=site_from_which_im_linking&utm_medium= websitelink&utm_content=textlink
    ?utm_source=yoursite&utm_medium=postfooter&utm_cam paign=product
    ?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=profile&utm_campaig n=website
    ?utm_source=newsletterdate&utm_medium=productimage &utm_campaign=product
    (above examples are maybe wrong as they do not contain utm_content parameter which is required on Google UTM builder page mentioned above)

    WHERE TO FIND STATISTICS

    Probably in Google Analytics -> Webite name -> Traffic sources -> Campaigns

    Is this useful / helpfull? Yes | No
    I dont know why you would go into all this. Google analytics offers a very user friendly guide even adwords does in which you can set your own conditions for tracing it supplies you with javascript that will report back any triggered event to your analytics database. You paste it , they verify it and you are done.
