Deconstruct JavaScript Page Tags

Page tagging and the hosted data collection model are relatively new, but becoming more popular. Learn how JavaScript page tags work and make better decisions about deploying them on your site.

JavaScript is a scripting language that is used in web browsers to enable an HTML page to communicate with the visitor’s browser. By understanding JavaScript and how it interacts with variables, you can pass in friendly information like page names, product information, campaign data, or anything else.

How Do Web Measurement Tools Use JavaScript?

Not all web measurement tools collect data the same way, but many use JavaScript to collect information from the visitor’s browser and act as an API to the web server that displays the content. All the popular web browsers on the market use JavaScript, so it is a good medium to use to interact with the browser application and any server-side technology you may have deployed (Active Server Pages, Cold Fusion, etc.).
