The performance section of the Clutch Vendor Dashboard and Google Analytics 4 are resources used to track profile views and website click-throughs.
Only Clutch+ and sponsored profiles receive custom performance tracking access with UTM codes.
Performance Section of Dashboard
The performance section of your Dashboard allows you to view historical click-throughs and profile views on an aggregate and per-page basis. You can also monitor real-time page position.
What is a UTM?
UTM parameters are special codes that can be added to the end of any URL to track clicks and the performance of marketing activities.

Step 1: Log into Google Analytics: http://www.google.com/analytics/
Step 2: Select Admin (bottom left of screen)
Step 3: Click 'Create Property'.
You will then see the screen below:
Step 4: Name the new property, 'Clutch', click next and then fill out the business size, industry, and goal questions.
Step 5: Input your Clutch profile URL into the 'Website URL' field, i.e., https://clutch.co/profile/company-x and name stream 'Clutch Profile'.
Step 6: Click 'Create Stream'.
Step 7: Copy the Measurement ID (G-xxxxxxx)
(Your “G-” ID appears at the upper right)
Step 8: Log into Clutch and ‘Update Profile’
