What purpose does UTM tracking serve?

UTM tracking is used to track the performance of campaigns and content. You can use UTM to track the source of traffic to your page.

It allows you to determine the source of your website traffic and further strategize the efforts bringing you the highest revenue.

A UTM code is a snippet of code that you add to the end of a URL. There are 5 different UTM parameters that you can add to your URL.

Traffic Source

Example: &utm_source=facebook

What type of traffic did the visitor come from?
Example: &utm_medium=email

Campaign Name
How did this specific campaign perform?
Example: &utm_campaign=example-name

Which link was clicked? (Only if there are multiple links)
Example: &utm_content=navlink

Keyword Term
Which keyword term drew in a visitor? (Specifically for paid ads)
Example: &utm_term=UTM+tracking+howto

Once used, check your UTM stats via Google Analytics to determine the source of your website traffic.
