Track original source

When online publications drive traffic to your online store, seeing Publitas as the referrer in your analytics platform does not always tell the whole story. This is why we’ve made it possible to track the original source of your traffic (e.g. an affiliate site or one of your email campaigns). We do this by automatically taking the URL parameters (e.g. UTM tags) from your publication’s URL and adding them to all the links in your publication.
