I'm using Google Analytics utm_source, utm_medium, and utm_campaign to track some paid links on referring websites through to my site.

Typically a person will land on the site, visit a few pages, and hopefully submit a lead.

When they submit a lead, I'd like to be able to get the utm_source, utm_medium, and utm_campaign values from Google (if present) and send them via hidden form fields.

Is it possible to grab these variables from Google Analytics on the form page?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the solution, that's great (the site is in PHP).
