Hi Uku and Marko,
I started a newsletter on Substack that complements my blog on which I am using Plausible Analytics.
Do you have any recommendations or best practices on how I can best track referrals coming from the newsletter via users clicking on links to my site? Right now the newsletter can be consumed in one of two ways: as an email sent directly to the subscriber or on a substack hosted page (also, substack’s current dashboard stats are pretty weak). I can see the latter category of referrals from the substack domain, but I want to see if I can track clicks from the email.
Would adding a url parameter work (e.g. foo.com?source=substack)? Will plausible track http://foo.com and http://foo.com?source=substack as separate pages or will it aggregate both as foo.com? Or is there some other approach you would recommend?
Thanks for any suggestions.
