URL UTM Builder

Get more from Google Analytics with UTM codes.

This form helps you create a URL with UTM codes. UTM codes provide better data in Google Analytics. Ceate as many variations as you'd like.

Follow the steps below to create your URL + UTM Codes.

Important Rules:

    do not use spaces between words, use a '-' instead. E.g. use "banner-ad" not "banner ad". only use lower case letters.
    do not use any special characters in the form fields. E.g. /, $, *, &, # or @.
    be careful with typos. Data is collected once you put a URL into the world with UTM codes.

Your URL will update as you go and display at the bottom of the page.

*Step 1 - Enter the url for this initiative:
This is the URL of your page. It can be any web page. For example, www.xoominternet.com/ or www.xoominternet.com/p/privacy.html.

*Step 2 - Select your campaign medium:
This is the medium such as social media, another website or a television ad.

*Step 3 - Enter your source:
This is the source of the campaign. It is one step down from medium. For example, if the medium is social, the source could be twitter.

*Step 4 - Enter your campaign name:
This is the name of the campaign. Your campaign name MUST start with your department acronym. Only use one department code - if more than one, use the lead agency's code. We also recommend using the mmmyy date in the name. E.g. dtmr-aug15-roadsafety.

Step 5 - Enter any paid search terms:
If you're using paid search, enter your search terms here with a + separating words e.g. road+safety. If not being used, leave blank.

*Step 6 - Enter your campaign content:
This is where you differentiate ads or links from the same source. E.g. brisbane-ad1.Press 'enter' once you're done.

Press 'enter' once you've finished typing.

All done? If not, you can go back and edit the fields as much as you like.
