Is the pixel there?

Where’s my Pixel?

Has the pixel been placed on the page? If the customer doesn’t know and the web developer can’t be contacted you can find out yourself. It isn’t difficult and this guide shows you how to do it depending what web browser you are using.

Using Google Chrome

Step 1

Go to the customer’s website and hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press the ‘U’ on the keyboard.

This will open up another browser window with a lot of scary looking code. Don’t panic!

Scary Code

Step 2

At this point you could patiently start scrolling through the code desperately scanning each line – or you could hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press the ‘F’ key on the keyboard.

This will open up a search box in the top right hand corner. Type ‘simpli’ in this box and press enter or return.
If the code is there the word ‘simpli’ will be highlighted. This will commonly be either toward the top of the page or at the bottom.

Using Internet Explorer

Will this definitely work?

Some sites use something called Google Tag Manager and in this case the Simpli pixel will not show in the page’s source code – even if it has been added.

You can check to see if the site uses Google Tag Manager by following the previous steps but this time searching for ‘googletagmanager’.

If the term ‘googletagmanager’ is there then you will not be able to see the pixel whether it is there or not and you will need to contact the website owner or the website developer.
If the term ‘googletagmanager’ is not there and you are still not seeing the Simpli pixel then it is just not there.
