Discover AnyTrack core concepts and features so you can quickly and easily start tracking your traffic and build a clean data pipeline.
How AnyTrack works
The AnyTrack platform allows digital marketers to orchestrate the collection, tracking, attribution and distribution of traffic and conversion data across any marketing ecosystem.
Once the data is synced, it allows the marketer to take advantage of ad networks optimization engines, build custom audiences, measure campaigns and traffic ROI, or even build email marketing sequence based on subscribers' engagements and purchase history.
A true "plug & play" environment that not only solves huge tracking challenges, but tears down the frustrations created by tracking complexity and lack of data standards across affiliate platforms, tracking software, landing page builders and eCommerce platforms.
When a visitor lands on your site, the AnyTrack TAG will perform two main tasks:
- 1.It will generate a unique Visit ID which will allow AnyTrack to identify the user
- 2.Records traffic attributes such as:
- 1.URL parameters
- 2.Page path
- 3.Page URL
- 4.Campaign attributes
- 1.UTM parameters
- 2.Other URL parameters such as Click IDs, Campaign ID, etc...
- 5.Client info
- 3.User Agent
- 6.Google Analytics Client ID (the cookie set by Google Analytics to track individual visitors)
This information is stored so it can be used later to attribute conversions.
On-site engagements events are actions such as Clicks on Call to Actions URLs and Form submissions that your visitors do on your site.
Those events are sent to Google Analytics as Events.
