Add referring URL information to your SharePoint links

In some cases, tyGraph Pages cannot capture referring URL information. For example, links to SharePoint that have been posted in Yammer or Teams are intentionally stripped of the referring URL information by Microsoft.

The tyGraph Pages Engine can capture referring URL by adding the following code to your link:

?referrer=<Referring URL Information>

A link to should be updated to

See the example image below.

tyGraph Pages will display the referring URL like the image below.

Important note, the "referrer" attribute can be any value but cannot include special characters like #. You could track certain campaigns from email as an example: ?referrer=emailMyCampaign

If you share pages using the "Send to" > "Yammer" button in SharePoint, be sure to append
?referrer=SendToYammer at the end of your url prior to clicking the Share to Yammer button. This will ensure the url that is shared in a Yammer post will contain the referrer parameter and all the page views from Yammer will be tracked.
