This feature is only available on our Business and Premium Plans.

This documentation will explain in detail how to use the Tracking Links feature.

Overview

The Tracking Links feature allows you to create unlimited tracking links for your campaign, in order to track any and all marketing initiatives.

Tracking Links

  • Track entries coming from an email blast.
  • Track entries coming from a Facebook post.
  • Track entries coming from an Instagram post (link in bio).
  • Track entries coming from partners.
  • Track entries coming from paid ads.
  • You do not need to use long Google UTM links.
  • See a full breakdown of traffic and entries from each source.

Setup

Once your campaign is setup, hover it in your dashboard and click on Analytics. Next, click on Tracking.

To generate a tracking link for our campaign, we simply need to name the link (what the source of traffic will be) then click Generate URL.


Once the tracking links begin accumulating data, you'll be able to see the amount of page views and entries coming through each tracking link.

Append UTM parameters to links

If you are looking to pass through UTM parameters on the tracking links generated within our system, you can!

Simply generate the tracking link within our system first. Then, appened the UTM parameters to the link, or use Google's UTM builder to do it for you: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/

When a user visits the link, it will go to your URL and append the parameters to the end of the URL.

For example, this is a tracking link that has been generated:

http://swee.ps/EmQXBJoCN

it redirects to our campaign at:

https://app.viralsweep.com/sweeps/full/2c5dc1-26139&framed=1

I can now take that link and append some parameters, like so:

http://swee.ps/EmQXBJoCN?utm_source=docs&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=elevio

and it will redirect to:

https://app.viralsweep.com/sweeps/full/2c5dc1-26139&framed=1&utm_source=docs&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=elevio
