GET parameter "gclid" (AdWords) will be excluded again


#1

Hi,
in the new version the GET parameter “gclid” which I need to track AdWords ist excluded again.

In the old version I could change the action.php. But now there’s a GET list in the admin to configure.
But since list is empty, the glicd exclude must still be hard coded…

Thx for a hint.
Matthias

you can delete it from core/Tracker/PageUrl.php line 33

Why do you need the gclid btw?


#3

I use it as a goal to track AdWords visitors (gclid as a pattern in the url)

Thanks for the tip, I created a ticket at when &gclid= parameter found, mark visitor as Adwords · Issue #4468 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
