  • Patent number: 9690868
    Abstract: A tag management system can include features to assist in developing a cross-vendor profile for individual visitors to content pages of a content site. The visitors to the content site can obtain universal identifiers usable by the content site to identify the visitors. The universal identifiers can be included in the content pages by the visitor end user systems so that browser tags that may not have native access to the universal identifier can access the universal identifiers. The universal identifiers may then be provided to tag vendor systems with associated visitor data, thereby enabling the tag vendor systems to provide processed or raw data that can be compared by individual universal identifiers. Using this processed data, the content site can prepare the cross-vendor profile of individual visitors and realize insights that may be unavailable using conventional systems and methods.
