Tagging for Full Site Coverage Using Easy Tag

Quantcast prefers that all advertisers we work with fully tag their site, regardless of the nature of the campaign. The more tag coverage a site has, the stronger your custom audience model will be and the easier it becomes to leverage all Quantcast product offerings. As important as it is to understand what makes the users who are converting on your website unique, it is equally as important for us to understand different paths to conversion throughout your website and differentiate a browser from a serious prospect.


We offer a single tag solution aid in site tagging call Easy Tag. Easy Tag is an easy-to-implement asynchronous JavaScript tag (or pixel), and is an important tool for identifying audiences and building performance models. You can apply the Easy Tag to most pages on the site.
