We recommend Chrome for testing, but you can use any browser in a similar way.
- Load any article page on the site.
- Open Chrome DevTools (F12)
a?in the search box to filter all requests on the page
The tracker triggers two types of requests:
p request triggers a Pageview.
p request triggers after 10 seconds and it gives Article Read.
One a request is triggered on every 5 seconds if there was any user activity on the article page (cursor move, click, scroll etc) and it tracks Attention Time.
This means that if a user chooses another tab in a browser or just leaves to do something else, attention time will not be measured until they come back and perform another reading activity.
Click on any of fired requests and look for the Query String Parameters at the bottom of the Headers tab.
Another option is to just type
_ain in the DevTools Console tab and hit
Enter. You will see how the
_ain object is filled.
