How do I add UTM tracking to my campaign?

UTM tracking is one of the most important aspects of a successful campaign because it allows you to review your performance and to optimize accordingly.

Begin building your UTM string here

Our recommended tracking code is:

utm_source=Outbrain&utm_medium=Discovery&utm_campaign=your_campaign_name&utm_content={{ad_title}}&utm_term={{section_name}}

Replace "your-campaign-name" with the name of your campaign

utm_source=outbrain
This reflects engagement data per traffic source. Outbrain is sending you visits, so the source can be listed as Outbrain. 

utm_medium-discovery
This reflects engagement data per advertising medium. Outbrain is a content discovery network, so the medium can be listed as discovery.

utm_campaign=your-campaign
This reflects engagement data per campaign. You'll be able to drill down to the performance per each campaign to understand their engagement levels. Be sure to change 'your-campaign' to the actual name of the campaign you are tracking. 

utm_content={{ad_title}}
This reflects engagement data per the specific headlines in your campaign. You'll be able to view which headlines are driving the most engaged audiences to make accurate optimization decisions.

utm_term={{section_name}}
This reflects engagement data per publisher source. You'll be able to view which publishing sections are sending the most engaged traffic and optimize your campaigns with these insights.

Your UTM tracking code can be changed at any time during campaign creation or after submitting it. Locate the campaign and click the pencil icon to open the campaign’s settings. You may adjust or add a new UTM code in the "Tracking” section. 
 

 

Save your modification by clicking on the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the screen. Your tracking code will automatically append to all headlines within the campaign.
