TikTok UTM Parameters

Leverage the UTM tracking template by AnyTrack in order to improve your data collection, reporting and attribution.

UTM parameters are tags that you add to a URL. When someone clicks on a URL with UTM parameters, those tags are sent back to your Google Analytics for tracking. AnyTrack automatically tracks UTM parameters from your TikTok ads and syncs them with your analytics and ad networks.

What are TikTok UTM Parameters?

TikTok UTM parameters are specific tags that you append to the end of your URL to track source, medium, campaign, term, and content for each visitor to your site.
