The Google Analytics standard parameters are all in place to track user actions. This is standard for all Google Analytics campaigns. But what you probably didn’t know is that the campaign parameters are embedded within the Google Analytics tracking codes. You can see this if you try to add a new GA tag to your site and you’ll see a warning message appear in your GA tracking code. The warning message is the standard Google Analytics “warning” message.

This is something most marketers don’t understand. They think that these GA parameters are there to track the user activity on their website. This is not the case. They arent there to track user activity. They are there to track the campaigns that your website has. For example, if you had a campaign with one item in it, you would not want to have a GA parameter for it.
You can read about exactly what the GA parameters are here.
People are interested in these GA parameter tags, but the tags you want to use are a bit off-topic. So we can never get the information that Google has provided about the campaign parameters.
If you want to know what the GA parameters are for you, Google Analytics offers a tool that allows you to edit your campaign parameters.
A lot of times we get so caught up in the design and aesthetics of our websites that we don’t actually know what’s really going on behind the scenes.
The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
One of the most important things we do in our life is to exercise discipline. When we’re on autopilot we do things that are not productive at all. It’s not because we’re lazy or careless. It’s because we’re busy and don’t have time to think about something else.
