Google Analytics can attribute a visit to nearly any type of media, so long as the URL that the visitor lands on has "campaign tags"1Use the template from Template gallery to get the latest version of this file. Select "Use This Template" to get started.
7
Campaign tags can be used for nearly any type of link: paid search, display ads, social media links, affiliates, links within emails, etc.2Use the sheet, called "Link Tag Generator", to create destination URLs for your campaigns
8
These campaign tags are extra parameters that go on the end of your destination URL, after a ? (example: www.website.com/landingpage.html?utm…)3After you're done with the urls click the menu "GA TagBuilder" and click option "Minify All Tagged Urls". The first time you use the GA TagBuilder menu, you will need to authroize the script to run, and then select the command again.

There are 5 types of tag parameters in Google Analytics "utm_source", "utm_medium", "utm_campaign", "utm_content", and "utm_term". When using tags, source, medium and campaign are required. 4Always test a tagged URL first by simply pasting one of the tagged URLs into the address bar of a browser and pressing "Enter" to navigate to your site. If your page does not load as intended, or if the tags disappear upon arrival, you may need to contact your webmaster.
