URL parameters - How to pass it to the destination URL

URL shorteners variable parameters - How to pass URL parameters (variables) to the destination URL 


You can pass URL parameter values to your tracking destination URL using the options available in ClickMeter
To do so, please follow the steps below:

  1. Create a tracking link using the destination URL as www.yoursite.com?myparam={id} 
    (Please note the syntax {id}. Here you will pass the value for the parameter "myparam". )
  2. Your tracking link will be (as an example): www.go.clickmeter.com/38w
  3. Now add (manually) a parameter to the tracking link: www.go.clickmeter.com/38w2?id=123
  4. After you click on this tracking link the destination URL will look like: www.yoursite.com/?myparam=123

You can also add multiple parameters to the tracking link by separating them with a "&". 
Here is an example: 
Destination URL: www.yoursite.com?myparam1={id1}&myparam2={id2} 
Tracking link: www.go.clickmeter.com/38w2?id1=123&id2=abc 
After click: www.yoursite.com?myparam1=123&myparam2=abc 

An URL (Uniform resource locator) is a set of strings to define a location in the World Wide Web (www). It can also be used to pass information to the destination. Any word after the question mark (?) in a URL is considered to be a parameter which can hold values. The value for the corresponding parameter is given after the symbol "equals" (=). Multiple parameters can be passed through the URL by separating them with multiple "&". Read more about passing parameter through URL. 

Note: This option is well suited for the advanced users who are dealing with complex application websites and links interacting with databases.
