Yahoo Analytics

Web analytics service offered by Yahoo that tracks and reports website traffic.


Web analytics that tracks traffic coming from LinkedIn to our site.


This is set to identify a new user’s first session. It stores a true/false value, indicating whether this was the first time Hotjar saw this user. It is used by Recording filters to identify new user sessions.


Tracks traffic data for the website in the site's CMS - Sitecore.


When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.


This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that visitor is included in the data sampling defined by your site's pageview limit.

 Hotjar cookie that is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.
