About the tracking pixel

When you paste this story into your backend, you will find a snippet of javascript at the bottom that looks like the code below. This is the tracking pixel. It is a commonly used tool that will allow us to measure the reach of our work. If you prefer to copy the tracking pixel separately, here it is:


<script type="application/javascript"> 
    window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', (event) => { 
      var img = document.createElement('img'); 
      var src = 'https://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1'; 
      src += '&tid=UA-172916447-1'; 
      src += '&cid=1'; 
      src += '&t=pageview'; 
      src += '&dl=' + encodeURIComponent('https://nexusmedianews.com/plastics-are-sealing-the-planets-fate-fab0a73a1fe1/'); 
      src += '&dt=' + encodeURIComponent('Plastics Are Sealing The Planet’s Fate'); 
      src += '&dr=' + encodeURIComponent(window.location.href); 
      img.src = src; 
      img.width = 1; 
      img.height = 1; 
      img.setAttribute('style', 'display: none;'); 
      img.setAttribute('aria', 'hidden'); 
      img.setAttribute('role', 'presentation'); 
      img.alt	= ''; 
      document.body.appendChild(img); 
    }); 
</script>
