Stream Referrers: Social Media option vs. Google source vs. Subtype and Type

Follow

There are two ways how you can track visitors that come to your website from social media:

  1. Broadly
  2. Specifically

 

  1. Broadly - through selecting "Social Media - Network Name", you will be able to pick up anybody who comes from any social media, granted you choose "with any value"; if you choose "with any selected value" and then put down the name of your target social media platform (ie. Facebook), it will pick up people only from Facebook; however, with these rules, CANDDi will not pick up specific posts

  2. Specifically
    1. Subtype and Type - quite useful if you are looking for people coming from any social media BUT one (ie. looking for everyone who came from social media that wasn’t Facebook)
    2. Google Source - helps you track specific posts on your social media that brought visitors to your website. (more on how in Social Media Integration FAQ)
