Using Web Behavior Tracking


Web Behavior Tracking is a powerful advanced module that provides greater insight into how customers and prospects interact with your website, meaning you can deliver even more relevant and effective content.

A special snippet of JavaScript tracking code is added to the pages of your website that you'd like tracked. This enables the capture, collection and storage of browsing details against your contacts as Insight data records.

Capturing data

Web Behavior Tracking captures the following data:

  • Pages viewed by a contact (page title, URL, and date and time of view)
  • Duration of view
  • Total number of pages viewed in a single visit by a contact
  • Website visited (because you may be tracking more than one website)
  • Browser used by the contact
  • IP address of the contact
  • Google Analytics tracking information

It's also possible to send custom data to your account by editing the tracking code.

Using Web Behavior Tracking

Advanced personalisation allows you to directly use Web Behavior Tracking data in your email campaigns or in your landing pages - should you want to include the name of a page a contact's visited, for instance.

You can also use the data to segment your contacts and send them communications that are both personalised and targeted. Examples include:
