I am using manuel tracking codes to deliver information to GA. We would like to run a leadsource code along with the URL. which is: ?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=android&utm_campaign=US_Branded_Display, how & where would I add the new code?  leadsource=10194

Thanks

Hi Paul,

If you are doing this taggng just for GA, may I suggest simply linking your GA account to your AdWords account and having auto tagging switched on. Heres how to to this:

If you go ahead with this, tag your URL with your lead source number and for the AdWords part of the tagging leave auto tagging on...

This gives you a lot more data than your tagging would give.

If you still want to go ahead with your tagging, you need to append leadsource=10194 to the end of your URL like this:
?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=android&utm_campaign=US_Branded_Display&leadsource=10194
Cheers,
Shweta
