Add UTM codes to a web push campaign to collect site statistics on it.

UTM codes are parameters that allow you to determine where traffic to your site is coming from. Thus, you can evaluate the effectiveness of different marketing channels.

Required UTM codes:

utm_campaign is a campaign ID, which helps find campaigns in Google Analytics.

utm_source is a traffic source, advertising system.

utm_medium is a traffic channel.

How to add UTM codes to a web push campaign

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

  • add codes by default;
  • set your value for utm_campaign;
  • set your tags.

Adding tags by default

When creating a web push campaign, click the settings button.

Setting your value for utm_campaign

Select the “UTM Codes” checkbox.

In the “utm_campaign” field, enter your campaign ID, for example, best50%.

The tags utm_campaign=best50%, utm_source=sendpulse, and utm_medium=push will be added to the link in the web push notification.

Setting your tags

To create a link manually, specify a full URL of a page to which the web push notification should lead.

At the end of the page, the link adds a question mark.

Specify UTM codes, connecting them with the “&” character.
