  • Title (Required)
    Enter a descriptive title to identify the Tag instance.
  • Advertiser ID (Required)
    This is the ID of the source advertiser that is tracking the Floodlight activity. Enter the value of "src" key in this field.
  • Type (Optional)
    Enter the 8-character string that identifies the group/type of Floodlight activity.
  • Category (Optional)
    Enter the 8-character string that identifies the Floodlight activity being tracked.
  • Counter Type (Optional)
    Click the drop-down list and set the method to count the frequency at which the Floodlight activity occurs. By default, this is set to the "Standard" method.
    • Standard: This will count each visit to the Floodlight-enabled web page as a separate activity.
    • Unique: This will count the number of conversions by unique users within a 24-hour period.
    • Per Session: This will count only one Floodlight activity per browser session.

Place this tag at the top of the list in the Tags tab to give it a higher priority than other tags.

Load Rules
