I Guessed Wrong – What about You? TPT Marketing – UTM Links Part 3 – Episode 11

I thought I knew how TPT custom URL links worked, but I was wrong. Watch the question at the very beginning of this video – can you get it right? 

Oops. I call at 7:13 I call it “direct search” but really, I mean “direct traffic” – as in people directly typing in the website address (i.e. Educircles.org) into the web browser (instead of clicking a link in Google search or another website.)

I say, “I clicked on a link” at 9:44 but by this I mean, I copy and pasted a link into the browser and went to the link. Words. I tell yeah.
