How can I track reddit ad traffic?

I'm experimenting with reddit ads, they use this extension on the landing url:


Maybe this should be more of a feature request anything with ?rdt_cid should be a paid ad from reddit.

Hi - wasn't aware of that. Just added support for it now!

For future reference, if there's a parameter like this you want to track that we don't automatically support, you can create a goal or campaign that looks for a match. Of course we'd also like to know about it so we can support them, but while you wait for us, you can do that in the meantime.

Thank you for responding.

I can see now the reddit ad traffic is now grouped into an Advertising filter. but it doesn't help me much because now I click on Ads and it's all the different paid ads shown in one section and I cannot really easily tell the ad is a reddit ad becasue the tag is not showing in the url.

I can workaround it and I guess create a different landing page for all reddit ad traffic.

I use goals to mark sales so i do not want to pad the goal totals with just cpc traffic.

To clarify

When I click on Visitors who arrived via advertising

I see all the paid traffic, bing, google, reddit.

The reddit traffic does not show a referer, maybe 2 out of 50 clicks show reddit as a referer.

After what you've done, the ?rdt_cid does not show up in the landing page url so I can't really tell that it come from reddit now.

Only way for me to tell is to add tags in the url showing its from reddit.

If you just want to view visitors from, use the Links->Domains report.
