I am currently working with a website using only HTML. I have variables being passed in the URL that are read by a javascript and I then take the parameter for each variable and populate it into a Google javascript.

JS reading the URL:

The variable to be written to the second JS:

The portion of the Google JS that is written to:

All of this has been working quite well for me. Those parameters are passed into Google ads but I still have several links on the page that do not have the '?pid1=' variable attached. I would like to be able to do one of the following:

1. Take the parameter from the variable 'pid1' and pass it into a link located in a < a > tag. ( NOTE: I do have multiple variables, example.com/index.html?pid1=abc&pid2=def&pid3=ghi )

2. Strip from the URL, starting with the ? and everything thereafter and attach it to one link or all links located in a < a > tag(s) on the page.

3. Strip from the URL, starting with the ? and only a selected set of variable(s) and attach it to one link or all links located in a < a > tag(s) on the page.

Very important note, my JS knowledge is limited to asking questions and taking what I get and trying to figure it out from there, which is what I am hoping to do here. Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Eric,

What you put together was perfect for what I needed. I made some minor modifications but ultimately I would not have been able to put something like this together myself.

Thank you very much!
