Google Analytics Link Tagging & URL Builder Tool
Easily tag multiple links to track PPC, banner ads, and other marketing campaigns
Google Analytics will automatically track data from many sources – for example, most major search engine visits, direct traffic, and Google-based visitors are identified and labeled automatically. However, without making use of Google’s link tagging mechanism, things like banner ads, non-AdWords PPC traffic, & other paid links will be identified within reports as "referral" or "organic" traffic.

To generate more than one link tag, please edit your fields again and press "Generate Code." The new code will generate below the last code.
In this example, we’re tagging a keyword in a web design-oriented PPC campaign running in Yahoo!
|Source (required)||utm_source=yahoo||Indentifies the website, search engine, or other point of origin|
|Medium (required)||utm_medium=cpc||The medium or context of the link|
|Name (required)||utm_campaign=web design||The specific campaign|
|Term (optional)||utm_term=ecommerce web design||Usually indentifies the specific PPC keyword|
|Content (optional)||utm_content=textad1||Differentiates between ads, placement, or other characteristics|
If we were directing traffic to http://www.beminteractive.com/web_design.htm, the complete link for this specific keyword would be:
http://www.beminteractive.com/web_design.htm?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=ecommerce web design&utm_content=textad1&utm_campaign=web design
That’s a long link! Only use what’s necessary – source, medium and campaign are required, but content and term are not.
