A look under the hood, Pt. 4: Data Capture

Task 4: Ensure that Codes are being Captured Correctly
The last task is the most important. Pristine codes, perfectly classified and placed within links, will never do anything if they are never received by the reporting system. A single typo in any URL will most likely send your link and its attendant tracking code into oblivion. But even a flawless link will not ensure capture. Think of it as the baton in a relay race; for the handoff to be successful, another runner must be waiting in the right place to receive it. That receiver is already in place wherever your analytics vendor’s machinery has been included. Unfortunately, the requirement to include this machinery (usually a Javascript library), is often forgotten when a marketing team creates a special landing page, or an agency creates a new microsite. The runner yells “Stick!” yet no outstretched hand receives the tracking code to take the victory lap home.
Claravine tests every landing page our users provide, not only for the obvious mistakes listed above, but for the more subtle issues that might occur. First we check to see if the page exists; then we verify that the page is equipped with the analytics machinery required to capture it. But then we keep going. We use a best-in-class technology that fully audits the tag, making sure that the code you just created is being captured into the destination report you just classified. With a green light from our system, you can now deploy the campaign with full confidence, knowing that the consistency standards have all been met, and that each data point will be sent and received without interruption from the first campaign click to the last.
Claravine is the solution. By shoring up every possible gap in the process, from the way codes are assembled and then classified, to the way links are built, and finally to the way this data will all finally find their way to your analytics reports, Claravine ensures that your reports mean exactly what they say. Use it faithfully, and it will restore your confidence in the reports you’ve long wished you could trust.
