Christian Ebernickel discusses why UTM parameters are are not suitable for tracking internal campaigns and proposes using ITMs instead.

ITM Parameters At A Glance Link

Drawing on the UTM parameters, we’ll use the following ITM parameters to track internal marketing campaigns:

  • itm_source
    This identifies the source of the traffic. In the case of internal ads, this is usually your own domain. However, if you employ cross-domain tracking or different ad servers, different traffic sources can appear in this field.
  • itm_medium
    This is the medium of the internal ad; for example, a banner or product recommendation.
    itm_campaign
    This is the name of the internal marketing campaign.
  • itm_content
    This is a parameter to differentiate between similar content, or links in the same ad; for example, text_link or banner_468x60.
    itm_term
  • This is the search keyword that triggered the internal ad. Alternatively, it could be a keyword to categorize the ad by content.
