QR Code Tracking

QR codes are used in various pioneering ways for such purposes like selling homes, shopping online, selling products and services, helping patients get better medical care, and others. QR codes can appear in magazines, business cards, buses or signs. QR codes can also be used to track business performance. Let’s take a look at QR codes tracking methodologies, and how they help websites to get hits.

QR code tracking helps to identify the location of the link to track. Methods for QR code tracking are designed in a way to be redirected to the QR code reader, which later redirects to the web page or the social networking site. QR codes are tracked by the owner of the web page to find out the number of hits on the web page, or it can also be tracked to get the vCard information. The most general method of QR code tracking is used to view the hits of the web page to which the QR code is linked.

For tracking QR codes, you first need to scan the QR code with the mobile scanner to get the data embedded in the QR code. The data can be a web address which can be opened as a browser so that’s users can get information on the page.

The method of tracking depends on the phone scanner or the software where the process can produce two outcomes. In the first outcome, the user scans the QR code but may not visit the page. In the second outcome, the user scans the page and also visits the page. If the user scans the page and visits the page, the user is redirected to your web page and there will be a hit. Once the hit is registered, the user is redirected to another page.

In the second option of QR tracking, the user uses the same QR code scanning app of the same provider. You can hope that the user uses the same service and scanning app to get you a hit. In the third method, you set up a web address for your site to track QR codes, in which you use various analytics to monitor the QR codes.
