Adobe DTM link confirmation on the webpage


I want to know how to tell if a URL/Link has a tracking tag on a webpage. For  i.e I three assets on my web page. A contact Us button, an article link and about us link in the footer. I am using the chrome browser. What is the simplest was to confirm that each link is tagged. I checked the source code and see that DTM and launch is enable but how can I tell if each link on my page is being tracked so I verify the number of clicks per link later on in Adobe Analytics.  Is there a search feature I can use?

Hi Dan,

The actual tagging is usually done by JavaScript when the page loads so beyond the initial code snippet you have, there's no way to search through your code files to say XYZ button is set up with tagging.

There is a browser extension for Chrome (and it should work in Edge, too) which is here:

....and it may help confirm that the tagging is set up properly by capturing the tagging activity in the JavaScript console (if you hit F12 in chrome/edge, it's the "console" tab).

If that extension doesn't work for you, I can help walk you through how to debug JavaScript events so you can see the DTM code running, but I think that extension might be what you need.

I am having trouble with the extension. Can you walk me through how to debug the JavaScript events?

Also, if you can share a URL where I could see a page that should have the events installed, and tell me which button should be tracked, I can see if maybe there's a simpler way to do it.
