UTM (Urchin Tracking Module) are special parameters that can be added to a standard URL address. Thanks to using UTM tags you can track traffic on your website from multiple sources.

Elements of UTM tags:

  • Source – identifies where the traffic is coming from; the only parameter that is required.
  • Medium – identifies the type of traffic; it means e.g. what type of link was used – cost per click or email.
  • Campaign – identifies a strategic campaign, e.g. weekend-sale etc.
  • Term – identifies search terms.
  • Content – identifies what exactly was clicked and brought the user to the site; such as a text link.

IMPORTANT: UTM parameters can be named as you wish but remember that UTM tags are used to provide precise and convenient traffic analysis on the website. That is why these names need to be understandable and not ambiguous. What is more, when somebody clicks the link which is tagged, UTM parameters are seen.
