Hi All,

I know better than to use a URL tracking parameter on the Google + Local listing for many reasons. One of my clients has these tracking parameters in place and does not want to change them. I understand they like tracing the clicks from their listing but it could and I believe is, hurting them.

I'm 95% sure I came across an article of how Google came out and said not to do this this week. It may have ever been on the Google forum but I cant find it for the life of me.

Anyone know what Im talking about & how to find it?

Thanks All.

Jason

Thanks Keenan. This is what I was referring to.

Even though Google allows the parameters, it seems like it would be bad practice. Wouldnt you want your website the exact same url as it appears on the website?

If you're worried it would affect your ranking, I don't think adding tracking parameters is going to affect how Google sees the url.
