Trouble with utm tracking

Hi,  There is a conflict between UTM tags and automatic markup. Data are forked by the cost / number of clicks and behavioral metrics.
 
I use the following template (below). What could be the problem? Tech support recommends using without UTM labels, but this is not an option

 

{lpurl}?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=585_Smart_test&network={network}&placement={placement}&adposition={adposition}&utm_content={creative}&matchtype={matchtype}&utm_term={keyword}

As long as you use autotagging you'll see the ad cost, clicks etc.   If you must use utm tags for attribution then you can ask GA to ingore the GCLID for attribution.

Good morning,

 

It's best practice to use Auto Tagging and not use UTM params for Google CPC traffic (only).

 

You can still use your value track variables like "creative", "placement" etc.

 

You can also use autotagging and ask GA to ignore the gclid and use the utm params by checking the tick mark in Admin>>Property>>Property Settings>>Advanced.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Best,

Many thanks but if we'll ignore gclid we shouldn't see the price of ad, isn't it?
