Sonar FAQs

A Referer URL comes from the webpage that led a user to your webpage. A referer URL takes information about the user from the page the link was clicked on. This works on your website as well and shows how users interact with the website as a whole.

Is it included in my plan?

Yes. Sonar is a free subscription available to all our SimplyCast users, so all the features of Sonar are fully unlocked for you. This does not mean, however, that the features of 360 such as email, SMS, and others are unlocked.

How do I use it?

When you open our application at app.simplycast.com and sign in, you will notice some tabs along the very top of the window. If you click "More" you can find Sonar in the menu that drops down. By opening Sonar and creating a new Sonar project, you will be transported to the editing page, where you can add rules and change settings and tracker types. Clicking the plus sign to "add additional tracking data" you can use the dropdowns to build a tracking rule with this feature in it.

How does this benefit me?

This allows you to gather information in order to see where your traffic is coming from, and which backlinks and locations to focus on.  For example, if someone clicks a tracking link I have posted on Facebook, then the data is generated based on the information given by the link click there, not the tracker when they reach my page.
