Introduction

Beacon evaluates traffic from your adverts to detect bot activity and provide suppression of bots in your digital campaigns. To enable us to do this, you will need to make some small changes to current and future digital ads; these changes depend on which ad networks you are running ads on.

You will need your Beacon dynamic link tag. This may be found in the Beacon app at https://insights.thisisbeacon.com/dynamic-links. (login required).

Changes required for Meta

Beacon requires that you add a minimum of 2 required URL parameters to any that you have already set; with the option to add up to 3 more for more advanced analytics.
