Forwarding URL Query String Parameters

Linkly can forward URI parameters to the destination.

For example, if you have a Linkly link like:

https://l.linklyhq.com/l/n5a?gclid=1234

Linkly can send the gclid=1234 onto the destination.

You’d normally use this if you’re integrating with another tracking solution, like Google Analytics.

How to Forward URL Parameters

  1. Create a Linkly link.

  2. In the form, click Forward parameters to destination.

  3. Save your link.

Linkly can automatically forward query parameters onto the destination.
Linkly can automatically forward query parameters onto the destination.

Now, whenever you append ?example=query to your Linkly link, Linkly will redirect the visitor to a destination and append the same query string.

Notes about Query String Forwarding

  • Queries have to be fully formed:
    You must enter ?example=1 and not just ?example.
  • You can use multiple query parameters (e.g. ?example=1&example=2).
  • Query string forwarding URIs. Linkly supports a wide range of URI formats, including mailto, SMS and tel links, support for query string forwarding is limited to proper URLs.
