Campaign group uses

Separate paid and non-paid traffic

Creating a group that excludes paid traffic—when a visitor lands on a piece of content from a paid promotion like a display ad, Facebook ad, or affiliate link—lets you see what content is garnering attention organically.

Fix mistakes in campaign values

Adding campaign parameters to a URL is a manual, and often error-prone process. Campaign values are case sensitive, so if you tag one article with “utm_medium=Social” and another with “utm_medium=social”, they’ll show up as two separate mediums in Parse.ly. By creating a group of multiple campaign values, you can eliminate variations and attribute traffic to the right campaign.
