UTM Clutter Killer

When you copy a URI from Twitter or your feed reader to create a hyperlink, better remove Google’s UTM clutter before you ruin your HREF attributes:

Cluttered URI:

 

Enter the cluttered URI in the input field, press the button, then copy the clean URI from the textarea below. This tool removes all GoogleAnalytics “utm_” parameters that various Google applications add to URIs. More on Google’s URI spam.

    Static URIs

    With static URIs like http://example.com/page.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:Somefeed it’s easy to remove the sneaky UTM query string. Actually, you don’t even need a tool for that.

    Dynamic URIs

    When Google has abused dynamic URIs like http://example.com/script?variable=value?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:Somefeed, the tool comes handy. It rescues the original query string, and handles even appended fragments like in http://example.com/script?variable=value?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:Somefeed#fragment.

    http://example.com/page.html

    I’m working on a fix for the iPhone - would there be a way to use your UTM Clutter Killer as a bookmarklet?

    [You could reengineer it, that’s better than a bookmarklet.]
