Track Bibblio in your Google Analytics

The fast track

Whether you are using one or several modules on your site, you may want to track how users interacting with the recommendations behave across other key metrics such as bounce rate, pages per session or average session duration.

By adding tracking parameters to your modules you will be able to see Bibblio as a Source, Medium or Campaign in your Traffic Acquisition reports, and get more visibility over your most engaging pages in the Behaviour reports. Simply navigate to Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages, add Full Referrer as a Secondary Dimension and look for Bibblio there.

Add tracking parameters to the <div> snippet as a single string using the data-query-string-params attribute. For example:

<div class="bib--rcm-init"
data-recommendation-key="YOUR_RECOMMENDATION_KEY"
data-style-classes="YOUR_CLASSES"
data-query-string-params="utm_source=Bibblio&utm_campaign=Sponsored">
</div>

To apply the change, you must redeploy the code.
