Customizing Tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a site that is advertising the same product, but made by different vendors.  For example, Item A is made by vendor #1 and Item B is made by vendor #2.

 

This site is running ads on web sites that will be placing the vendor number (rather than the company name) in the utm_term field.  For example, a fake URL with tracking might be:

 

http://www.fakedomainname.com/search.aspx?utm_source=source+name&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=campaig...

 

Is there a way to program Analytics to know that upon tracking this URL that if the value for utm_term=1, to replace that 1 with the vendor's name? (as far as the reporting goes)

Hi Joesc230,

If you don't want to publicly show internals in your campaign URLs, you may use Campaign Data Import [1] to specify a utm_id parameter that is internally replaced by the proper designations.
