Use of parameters

It is possible to add parameters to URLs. This can allow you to collect information about visits to your site.

In the context of advertising, they are often used to measure the effectiveness of your ads and campaigns.

Among other things, they will allow you to identify the origin of the traffic that arrived on your site.

These parametrers can:

  • Either be fixed and integrated directly into your redirection URLs (e.g. utm_source=Kwanko)
  • Or be dynamically replaced by our tracking system (e.g. utm_source={IDSITE})


List of Kwanko parameters

  • Parameters are always after the question mark of an URL.
  • They consist of 2 parts :
    • The first part is the name of the parameter. This name is unique to your site, and is before the sign "=". 
    • The second part is a "macro" which will be replaced dynamically by our tracking. It is located after the sign "=". 
    • Each parameter must be separated by an "&" to be correctly interpreted by your site.
