Tag tips

Use mapping to override the standard config values dynamically.

Tag configuration

Navigate to the Tag Marketplace to add a new tag. Read the Tag Overview article for general instructions on how to add a tag.

When adding the tag, configure the following settings:

  • Tag ID: Yandex Tag ID
  • Click Map: Detailed recordings of user activity on the site: mouse movement, scrolling, and clicks
  • Track Links: Setting tracking of outbound links and download links
  • Accurate Track Bounce: Enable the accurate bounce rate, with a non-bounce event registered after 15000 ms (15 s)
  • Webvisor: Webvisor reproduces user actions in video format and lets you know what they do on the site: how they move around the page, how they move the mouse cursor and click through links.

Load rules

Load the tag on all pages or set conditions for when your tag will load. For more information about load rules, see the Load Rules documentation.
