This post gives an outline of all CoreMetrics parameters and their meaning. This will help in the QA of the CoreMetrics tag.

 

Overview

 

CoreMetrics has a lot of parameters in the server calls and some aren't very clear on what they are. This post will outline the meaning of most parameters, which will hopefully make QA of the CoreMetrics tag easier. Below is a "kitchen sink" list of all the parameters. If you want a breakdown of the main CoreMetrics server calls continue to the next section.
