Is there some significance to the name of the page parameter you're including in the event object? I don't see that parameter documented anywhere and you don't specifically reference it when creating your trigger.

I tested without including the page parameter and it works the same. It seems like page isn't necessary.

Well the property it self is not required but I think its important to include it. The reason for it is to know what pages the user visits. Without it you are just (unless GTM can figure out this automatically) you only get the counts.

More info regarding the page you can find here:

Oh, nice find. I couldn't find documentation on that parameter; I assumed it wasn't an actual GTM param. Yeah, if you leave it empty GTM figures it out. I was thinking that might be a better option, since it reduces the chance that you set it incorrectly.
