18 Details of Marketing Campaign Tracking with Google Analytics at: campaign-tracking-with-google- analytics/ Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

19 Create an Standard Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

20 Always create and standard for data consistency among campaign tracking Use a spreadsheet to keep a record of what you have already defined Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

21 Considerations Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

22 Google Analytics uses UTMZ cookie to keep campaign values UTMZ expires in six month Use _setCampaignCookieTimeout() to change the expiry duration Example: Cookie expires in a day _gaq.push(['_setCampaignCookieTimeout', ]); Cookie expires when closing the browser _gaq.push(['_setCampaignCookieTimeout', 0]); Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

23 Some link tags interferes with SEO Use _setAllowAnchor() and append URL tags with # instead of ? Example: Add _gaq.push(['_setAllowAnchor', true]); to GA snippet Tagged URL can be: se&utm_medium= &utm_campaign=Fall+em ail+offers Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

24 More technical details here: gaJSApiCampaignTracking.html#_gat.GA_Tracker _._setCampaignCookieTimeout Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

25 Be careful with Redirection, make sure redirected page persists the tag values to next page Third part redirections sometimes add your URL as a tag to their URL and campaign tags won’t be collected in GA Test encoded URLs with adding ?test=test before creating a campaign tagged URL Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

26 My Best KPIs Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved

27 Depends on your business size and nature, you need to look at different KPIs In general, look into three major areas: – Acquisition – Behaviour – Conversion Cyberlitix Technologies 2012 All rights reserved
