UTM parameters, tags or labels are snippets of code which are appended to the end of a URL so you can track information about your website's traffic sources.
A UTM builder is a tool that allows you to simply and quickly add these snippets of code to your links.
It's important that your tags have a standard format so your analytics are correctly aggregated and recorded in Google Analytics. For example, if you assign a link a source tag entitled 'Facebook' and another the tag 'FB', these will appear as separate sources later on.
A UTM builder allows you to save standard labels to avoid this issue. Here are a couple of URL builders which are useful for marketers.
