Re: Linking Video Ads to Analytics
I recently had a similar problem with adwords for video and i found out a way to do this with manual tagging (UTM tags), but as there were problems with manual tagging as well so i did some ugly redirect solution as below
- I found out a gclid was getting added from youtube analytics and which was messing up the referral information, despite having UTM parameters in the URL
- To counter this kept destination URL as youtube.php which was practically invisible URL, which just stripped out gclid from the generated url and did a 301 redirect to the landing page where users were supposed to land with UTM parameters.
- This worked for me. I will try to post that PHP code soon.
Hope this helps
