    Setting UTM Source with Auto-tagging Enabled


    We have a URL parameter that will allow you to force our tracking script to recognize the UTM source and UTM medium you have set in Google Ads.

    Add on "force_utm=true" to your existing Final URL in Google Ads to override the auto-recognition of the source of Google and medium of cpc.

    Old URL

    http://www.example.com/?gclid=1234567_890&utm_source=charlotte&utm_medium=cpc

    Please note that the GCLID parameter is automatically added by Google Ads if you have auto-tagging enabled.

    New URL

    http://www.example.com/?gclid=1234567_890&utm_source=charlotte&utm_medium=cpc&force_utm=true

    If you have auto-tagging enabled for Google AdWords then the visit will be automatically tagged as Google CPC by our tracking script. Perhaps, you want to manually set the visitors UTM source and medium though. This can be beneficial if you have multiple locations and you want to show a specific number based on the ad that was clicked.

    We have introduced a new URL parameter that will allow you to force our tracking script to recognize the UTM source and UTM medium first.
    Add on "force_utm=true" to your existing URL.

    Old URL

    http://www.example.com/?gclid=1234567_890&utm_source=charlotte&utm_medium=cpc

    Please note that the GCLID parameter is automatically added by Google AdWords if you have auto-tagging enabled.

    New URL

    http://www.example.com/?gclid=1234567_890&utm_source=charlotte&utm_medium=cpc&force_utm=true

    With keyword tracking you will still be able to associate the visit with specific keywords and tie the visit back to Google AdWords conversions and Google Analytics.
