I’m trying to understand UTM parameters in relation to Analytics and Tag Manager governance. I understand what the various parameters (utm_source, utm_medium & utm_campaign) are for, and that you append these as querystring parameters to a link that you want to promote in order to track where a visitor from your site came from. However, I’m unsure as to how this is governed. For example, if someone was running a campaign with a link like this:
…do those source, medium and campaign values need to be set up in Analytics or Tag Manager in order to ensure that they’re legitimate? What would stop someone spamming my data by using their own values?:
I have created a new view (a copy of the main one) and set a filter as follows:
However, if I visit any URL with that inside of it, nothing gets picked up on the real-time view. However it does get picked up on the main view, where there are no filters.
I can’t click on the verify link as it’s saying the service isn’t available

For the past 2 weeks, on analytics, I am seeing visits from recaptcha-demo[.]appspot[.]com . (I have intentionally added square brackets to prevent anyone visiting the URL.) When I visited the URL, I found a demo page for some captcha utility. Should I be concerned?
The number of unique URLs exceeds the daily limit in our Google Analytics. We tried to exclude URL Query Parameters in the View Settings but it doesn’t work, GA continue to accept all this unique URLs. Who knows how to solve this problem?
Is there any easy way to use the Analytics data of a website, for example on google analytics, and query it to get the % of users with a browser resolution of X or larger?
It’s good to know the top used resolutions but for example I want to know if I can drop support for very small resolutions so it would be nice to know the % of users using 1024 or smaller for example.
I was wondering if there was an easy way to achieve this somewhere in G-Analytics or an external tool. Right now I’m parsing the raw data and doing this on a custom program I did.
Which hacking tool makes a request and does not show up on web-server logs?
/en/latest/ has been requested over 116, we don’t have this URL on the website at all!
The request to that URL does not show up on web-server logs but I setup google analytics to track ad-blockers by loading the script on a different URL that ad-blockers don’t know . But ever since i setup this google analytics it has trapped lots of hacking request on none existing URL?
How comes google analytics captures the request(The Hackers don’t actually know) and the request seems not reach the web-server because no logs are shown?
The thing is there is a deliberate request to none existing URL, that don’t show up on web-server logs, but my secrete google analytic scripts captures the URL
Which tool should be preferred between Webmaster and Analytics?
I was going through stripe.com’s source code and noticed pretty much all their links have these attibutes:
data-analytics-action="" data-analytics-source="" data-convert-cta=""
Obviously these are used to track where the user is clicking from, however I can’t find any information how to use them within Google Analytics or another Analytics software.
How do I actually set something like this up?
