The ObservePoint Custom Tag is a virtual tag that can be used in an Audit or Journey to access data that cannot ordinarily be accessed easily. For example, it can help find missing links, inspect HTML on the page, determine the byte size of all cookies on a page, look for SEO keywords, and much more.

The tag must be inserted onto each page of the Audit or Journey using a JavaScript Execute action. As the Audit or Journey progresses through the pages, the OP Custom Tag executes on each page, delivering content that you've defined to the ObservePoint reports.

The data captured with this tag will show up as ObservePoint Data in the Variable Summary Report.

Click on the number of unique values to see each value as well as each URL the value was found on. You can also find OP Custom Tag Data on each page under the Tags ribbon in the Page Details report.

The tag itself is a JavaScript snippet, but it can be expanded with additional functions to allow it to collect much more content. Many of these functions can be customized.


Here is a guide to help you create your own OP Custom Tag and help you customize it to meet your own needs.
