Looking for a session pageview count. Is there already a utag* cookie or option for knowing when a visitor is on the 1st page of a session (or nth page)? If not, best practice for counting PVs (will we need a new cookie)?

Hi John, cp.utag_main__pn will give you the pageview count and cp.utag_main__ss will be set to 1 when the session starts and 0 otherwise, cp.utag_main__sn is the # of sessions. Here is an article on the utag_main cookies https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Tealium-iQ/Tealium-Cookies/ta-p/138 Does this give you what you are looking for?

Hi John, The value you're looking for is utag_main__pn (double underscore between "main" and "pn"). Just add this as a data source with type "First Party Cookie", and it can then be referenced directly in mappings and extensions. Craig.

Looks like Jim and I both hit reply at once. Fortunately we both agree on the solution :-)
