I have a QR code on my site that links people to the mobile app store. Since it isn't a click but rather a QR code scan done on the user's mobile device, what is the recommended way of tracking this action in Google Analytics?
I was thinking it would be an immediate meta refresh from a blank page on my domain to the app store, as in:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=https://example.com/">, with example.com being the app store URL.
content is set to
0;, would GA still be able to pick up the UTM parameters? Or would it need to be set to
0.5;? Or something else?
Or perhaps there is a more reliable tracking method entirely.
