OptinMonster makes it easy to show your campaigns only to visitors with a specific anchor tag. Use the guide below to set up the anchor tag display rule for your campaigns.
In this article, you’ll learn how to target a campaign to an anchor tag.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin:
- Anchor tag targeting is available with a Pro or higher subscription.
- When you see Anchor tag mentioned in this article, the anchor tag is a specific portion of a web page’s URL, but not the full URL. The anchor tag is the text after a hash mark at the very end of the URL.
- Anchor tags can be used to link a visitor to a specific part of your webpage, like a heading in the middle of the page. For example, in the URL ‘https://www.domain.com/page#heading’ the anchor tag is ‘heading’.
- You can include or exclude a campaign from showing based on whether a specific anchor tag is present, or if it matches a pattern using RegEx.
