Why Use wt.dl?

The wt.dl parameter is the standard Webtrends parameter used to identify different types of web activity, including clicks to web forms, dynamic links, and other types of on-page clicks, by unique numeric values.

If you use the Webtrends tag with Webtrends Analytics 9 or SDC, you can use wt.dl as part of a larger strategy for precisely identifying and tracking your site activity. Using wt.dl simplifies Webtrends configuration and allows for more comprehensive reporting on page interactions.
