  • Criteria type - To select a criteria type, click the Criteria type link: Metadata or the arrow in front. A list of available criteria types then appears.

Select a criteria type from the list. You will get different settings depending on the type you selected. Below we list all the different types of criteria:

Criteria type User agent

 With this criterion you can check if the visitor enters with a mobile device.


Criteria type Referrer

A referrer is a header that explains where the visitor came from. So if someone clicks on a link that goes to your page, you can find out where they came from.

If the visitor clicks a shared post on Facebook, the referrer will contain Facebook.


Criteria type Referrer parameter

A referrer parameter enables you to use the parameters in the referrer header.

If a visitor clicked on, you can create a criterion based on banner = mail.

Referer parameter

Our search modules use Ajax-based searches. Searches that are to show their results on the same page that the search is made are made using Ajax. Such searches are done without changing the parameters of the page. Therefore, a referrer criterion will not find such searches. However, if a search result is to be presented on another page, the page is called with a parameter and can be found by a referrer criterion. If the visitor has disabled JavaScript in their browser, parameters are always sent.

Criteria type Last visit

If the visitor has not visited the website for, say a week, a view can be displayed to them.

Senaste besök

Criteria type URL parameter

A URL parameter enables you to use the parameters in the URL. For example, campaign ID.


Criteria type JavaScript

Here you can enter a script to check that something is met, such as whether the user is logged in or if the user does not have an e-mail address in the directory service. It is the result variable that has to be set to true or false.
