Set Up Statistics Collection

To collect site statistics on your web push campaigns, enable adding UTM tags to your mailing list.

How to Work with UTM Tags

UTM tags are parameters that allow you to determine your traffic source.

Required UTM tags:

  • utm_campaign (campaign ID using which you can find campaigns in statistics collection and analysis services).
  • utm_source (traffic source and advertising system).
  • utm_medium (traffic channel).

How to Add UTM Tags to Web Push Campaigns

The service provides three ways to use UTM tags in web push campaigns:

  • enable all service tags by default;
  • set your own value for utm_campaign;
  • set your own tags.

To enable all service tags by default, click the settings button, and select the "UTM parameters" checkbox.

When your notification is sent, the utm_campaign=digital value (id of the push campaign), utm_source=sendpulse, and utm_medium=push tags will be added to your link.

To set your own value for a UTM tag, enter your own campaign ID in the "utm_campaign" field, for example, best50%.

When your notification is sent, the utm_campaign=best50%, utm_source=sendpulse, and utm_medium=push tags will be added to your link.

To add custom tags to a link, enter the link with the specified UTM tags in the “Notification Link” field.

To create a link manually, specify the full URL of the page to which your web push notification should lead, and put a question mark at the end of the page link. Specify UTM tags by linking them with the "&" sign.

Example: 

https://best.com/?utm_campaign=best50%&utm_source=sendpulse&utm_medium=push

To create links automatically, use dedicated applications, for example:
UTM tag generator
URL Builder

Make sure the UTM parameters are disabled.
