Hello, <br /> <br /> Has there been any updates on this?<br /> <br /> ie. Is there the ability to use both UTM (for Google Analytic) tracking parameters<br /> <br /> AND<br /> <br /> the ?a_aid=000002<br /> <br /> ?<br /> <br /> Would something like this work?<br /> [I]<br /> <a href="http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1?a_aid=000002">http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1?a_aid=000002</a><br /> [/I]<br /> <br /> Would help a lot in tracking campaign sources...

the link you provided would not work , since '?' can be only once in a link.<br /> But if you replace the second '?' for '&amp;' then it will work...<br /> <br /> So you could use as a banner destination url:<br /> <a href="http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1">http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1</a> <br /> <br /> and the system would automatically attach the &amp;a_aid=referral_id&amp;a_bid=banner_id

Hi Laci,<br /> <br /> I'm trying to combine UTM Tracking with Affiliate tracking, and the code looks something like this:<br /> <br /> <a href="http://mestredaseducao.com.br#a_aid=ckl&amp;a_bid=3b2fbcf8&amp;chan=adex/?utm_source=AdEx&amp;utm_medium=MdS&amp;utm_campaign=CPC">http://mestredaseducao.com.br#a_aid=ckl&amp;a_bid=3b2fbcf8&amp;chan=adex/?utm_source=AdEx&amp;utm_medium=MdS&amp;utm_campaign=CPC</a><br /> <br /> But it's not working. Can you show me where is the problem?<br /> <br /> Thanks

in Banners manager, when adding a banner, setup a destination URL with UTM parameters.<br /> <br /> As Laci said on August 2011: <br /> <br /> So you could use as a banner destination URL: <br /> <a href="http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1">http://www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter4&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=campaign1</a>

Hello! Is there any News on this? I tried to add Google Analytics parameters and my Gneral Link looked like this (new style links method):<br /> <a href="https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links?a_aid=REFID">https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links?a_aid=REFID</a><br /> but the clicks aren't tracked correctly any more.<br /> <br /> Would it be a solution to change to anchor linking and set the links like this?<br /> <a href="https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links#a_aid=REFID">https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links#a_aid=REFID</a><br /> <br /> Would it work and would it have any Advantages/disadvantages?

Not sure from where you obtained the first link, but there is second question mark (?) in the URL, which is not a good syntax, therefore it can not work. Instead of second question mark, you should use sign of &quot;&amp;&quot;. <br /> <br /> Anyway the second link should work properly, since there is normal anchor link with &quot;#&quot;. <br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links#a_aid=REFID">https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links#a_aid=REFID</a>

Hi!<br /> <br /> You're right! The solution is that these links work properly:<br /> <a href="https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links&amp;a_aid=REFID">https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links&amp;a_aid=REFID</a><br /> https://www.example.com/?utm_medium=example&amp;utm_source=REFID&amp;utm_campaign=General+Links#a_aid=REFID<br /> <br /> Anyway, in my case the SQL Database on our server crashed the table qu_pap_visits2 . After the table got fixed by support the links got tracked fine again with using the UTM Tags.
