    • Values: search, newsletter, facebook, instagram, youtube, email, linkedin, twitter

  • Campaign Medium (utm_medium) – Identifies the medium which is sending the traffic (email, blog post, podcast, social, retargeting, etc.)

    • Values: email, blog post, podcast, social, retargeting

  • Campaign Name (utm_campaign) – Used to identify a particular campaign being run (an email campaign sequence, or a Facebook ad campaign)

    • Used to group links into an overall campaign. Name of a promotion (ie. indoctrination, chistmas_sale)

  • Campaign Term (utm_term) – Identifies any keyword terms used to refer to the traffic. Used mainly in pay-per-click ads where you’re bidding on keywords.

    • Only relevant when source = search
