Traffic Details and UTM Parameters

On Outgrow, you can review the overall performance of your interactive content and understand where and how you can improve its performance.

You can open the Analytics tab in the header. Now you can choose any content piece from the dropdown and click on Overview on the left panel.

Here, you will be able to view details on geographies, devices, traffic sources, browsers, etc. in a graphical format.

UTM Parameters and attribution

To capture data related to source, medium and campaign which is sending sweet traffic to your calculator or quiz it is recommended to use UTM parameters in the calculator or quiz URL. For example- https://democo.outgrow.co/Grammar-Quiz?utm_source=help&utm_medium=bklink&utm_campaign=supportlink.

When user lands on a calculator or quiz with UTM parameters appended to the URL, we capture these parameters. You can map utm_source, utm_medium, utm_campaign data to the respective fields in the third party app your are integrating with.

You can use following 5 UTM parameters in the calculator or quiz URL:

Parameter

Purpose

Examples

utm_source

Identifies which site sent the traffic, and is a required parameter.

utm_source=Google

utm_medium

Identifies what type of link was used, such as cost per click or email.

utm_medium=cpc

utm_campaign

Identifies a specific product promotion or strategic campaign.

utm_campaign=spring_sale

utm_term

Identifies search terms.

utm_term=running+shoes

utm_content

Identifies what specifically was clicked to bring the user to the site, such as a banner ad or a text link. It is often used for A/B testing and content-targeted ads.

utm_content=textlink

{gclid}

Gclid, short for Google Click Identifier, is a unique tracking parameter that Google uses to transfer information between your Google Ads account and your Google Analytics account.

redirecturl.com?gclid={gclid}

We recommend building a URL using a standard campaign URL builder like Google's Campaign URL Builder.

Please note only higher tier plans like Business and Enterprise plans can map the UTM parameters to respective fields in the third party apps using Native integration.

UTM in integration and analytics

After you have added the UTM parameters, you can also pass these variables during integration with your marketing tool. Simply map the utm source or medium or whichever variable you need to pass with the name that you have provided.

Once you have mapped these UTM variables, you can also find the data associated to these in the exported spreadsheet. To view, go to the ANALYZE tab and then export the data sheet. Now open the sheet and find these variables -

Other Supported Parameters

You can use the below-mentioned variables and add them to the URL, and you will be able to download these using Export functionality from the User Details section in Outgrow.

In case you want to further pass those variables in the redirect URL from Outgrow, then you can reach out to us.

Passing Custom URL parameter(s)

You can also pass custom URL parameters to the content URL and pass them to integration, e.g. Assume you want to pass AccountId in the URL and then pass this value to your integration mapping.
https://premade.outgrow.co/?accountid=

Since accountid parameter is not available as a standard field, you need to create a custom variable with the same name.
