Setting Up a CustomID and UTM Parameters
Skimlinks provides Publishers with the ability to set up a CustomID. The CustomID can be used to capture and report on information crucial to your commerce content strategy. Some examples of ways to use the CustomID include:
- Author Name/ID
- Publisher’s own vertical classification
You can find out more about setting up a CustomID here.
Publishers who use UTM parameters in their content distribution don’t need to do anything. For these publishers, Skimlinks automatically picks up UTM attributes fromURLs and adds them into the Revenue Source Report.
The Revenue Source Report is currently in BETA form and we’d love your feedback as we develop it further. Simply click on the “Send Feedback” link in the report and let us know what you think.
