Learn about the Cometly pixel (base code)
The Cometly Pixel is a small piece of code that gives you a clearer insight into your website visitors. It tracks the pages they visit and automatically updates their profile when they submit forms. Be sure to place the pixel on every page of your website, right before the </head> tag ends. And remember, it’s crucial to include it on every step of your customer's journey, whether that's within your sales funnels or across multiple domains.
What’s more, the Cometly Pixel is intuitive—it doesn't just recognize users across different devices, it also knows when the same person returns to your site. This means you'll always know when someone comes back, giving you a full view of each visitor's interaction with your site over time.
The Cometly base pixel will automatically updates the visitors profile when a form is filled out. You will automatically see the first name, last name, (or full name), email, and phone number inside Cometly if the visitor came from an ad.
