Can't create trackable URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello - Trying to create a trackable URL for my client to this website: https://www.titantool.com/sites/powrbeast/

 

Here's an example of it not working (and I have tried several variations): http://www.titantool.com/sites/powrbeast/ ?utm_campaign=APC_March_30&utm_source=apc&utm_medium=email

 

When I do my ordinary tags - it won't work and gives me a 404. We don't have back end CMS access. Any idea why this would be happening? I've had no trouble tagging URLs to other pages like this: https://www.titantool.com/rx-pro

 

Trackable URL that works: https://www.titantool.com/rx-pro/?utm_campaign=APC_March_23&utm_source=apc&utm_medium=email

 

Could it be how the page is categorized? I note that the one I can't create a tagged URL for has "sites" in the in it. Any help is appreciated!

Hi Erin,

 

I just tried your tagged URL https://www.titantool.com/sites/powrbeast/?utm_campaign=APC_March_30&utm_source=apc&utm_medium=email and it didn't give me a 404.

Also I don't see any GA tracking code on that page.

Hi @Erin F

The landing page https://www.titantool.com/sites/powrbeast/
If checked with Google Tag Assistant . and looking at the page source code via browser,

there is not google analytics tracking code installed on it

Hi Erin, 

This may just have been the way you shared the URL in the post to the forum, so sorry if this is not what you meant, but there is a space between you page URL and your tracking tags. That will always give you a 404 since spaces aren't allowed.
