We record Visited Site once for each visitor’s browsing session. After 30 minutes of inactivity, the next time the visitor comes back will trigger a new Visited Site event, and they will also have the KM Returning Property set to "Returning".
A number of other properties also get recorded along with the Visited Site event, including the following:
KM Referrer: the URL the visitor came from
KM Landing Page: the first page a user visited at the start of session
KM Returning: whether the user is new or returning
KM Device Type: the device being used by user
KM Device Category: the type of device the user is operating
KM Screen Resolution: the size of the user's screen
KM Operating System: the operating system of the above device
KM Operating System Version: the version of the above operating system
KM Browser: the browser that being used by user
KM Browser Version: the browser and version the user is running
KM City: the city where the user is located
KM Region: the state or region where the user is located
KM Country: the country where the user is located
KM Continent: the continent where the user is located
- If you set up an event to log a form submission (either through the API call trackSubmit or the Event Manager’s ‘Submits a Form’), then we also capture the data from the form’s fields.
<input>field will be saved as Property; we use the name attribute of the
<input>’sto name each Property.
- Hidden fields and sensitive fields (passwords, credit card numbers, and social security numbers) are NOT captured.
Triggered if a visitor reaches your site via a Google Ad Campaign (eg. paid search). We detect this by checking the URL for ?gclid or ?utm_ parameters, which indicate a URL tagged for ad purposes.
All the UTM variables will be captured as Properties if they are present in the URL:
Campaign Source: corresponds to utm_source
Campaign Medium: corresponds to utm_medium
Campaign Terms: corresponds to utm_term
Campaign Content: corresponds to utm_content
Campaign Name: corresponds to utm_campaign
- Triggered if a visitor reaches your site via a search engine, through organic search.
- The Property Search Engine - indicates which search engine was used.
- The Property Search Terms - indicates the search terms used.
- (disabled by default!)
- Triggered every time a visitor views any page on your site.
- The Property Viewed URL - indicates the page viewed.
- The Property KM Previous Page - indicates the page last viewed.
There are three additional settings that are not tied to specific events:
With this option on, the Event Manager can differentiate URL-based events that come from two or more of your subdomains (for example, www.example.com/pricing and subdomain.example.com/pricing are treated differently). With this option off, we don’t use the domain to determine a URL hit (so the previous two URLs would trigger the same event).
Enable or disable the use of our URL API.
