UTM URLs

  • Never add UTM tags to internal links
  • Try to add UTM tags to all your campaigns in a consistent manner
  • Be consistent with the case. It’s best to use lowercase to avoid any confusion.
  • Use a Campaign URL builder to make sure that your URLs are built correctly
  • Use the same values everytime. For example, if you use twitter , then don’t use tw or Twitter or other variations. A UTM generator tool can help you keep track of this.
  • Don’t use spaces. Use dashes or underscores based on complexity and your own specific analytics needs. It's not that simple!
  • Clearly define your UTM strategy and follow UTM parameters best practices
  • When you have multiple data points in a single UTM, use dashes to separate them. For example, weekly-2022_12_31 uses a dash to separate weekly and 2022_12_31
