  • Auto-tagging
    The "Auto-tagging" adds "YCLID" parameter to URL of ads when clicked by internet users. It works when the tagging is "Set" on account level.
    Some websites do not allow any URL parameter. Therefore an error may occur when Auto-tagging is "Set" for those websites. Please ask the administrator of the website or test the behavior by clicking ads with Auto-tagging "Set".
