Conversion tracking for affiliates

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hello everyone. I am searching for the best ppc software that can help me with tracking and optimization. I am affiliate so the conversion doesn't happen to my site so I cannot use the traditional tracking (adding a code to my thank you page) and I need to combine the information so I can make more informative decisions.

You can upload conversions or you can track using valuetrack parameters. It really depends on what your merchants offer in terms of custom values.

Unfortunately, if you don't control the process, it's going to be difficult. Impossible to get normal conversion tracking even.

If the purpose of your site is to send visitors to another merchant site, you're going to find it very difficult to advertise on adwordsAdWords. I'd recommend that you read all the policies before advertising.

Hi, we have tried PPC affiliate campaigns and it is ok to advertise vie Google AdWords, we managed to follow there requirements. We used third party software Voluum to track the conversions and then upload them in Google AdWords but right now we are searching for better solutions. Even a platform where we can easily manage all the ppc campaigns ( bing,,,,).

Hi Nora,
If you're uploading transactions, you really won't get a better solution. That's as good as it gets I'm afraid. You'll have to ask your merchant to add your tracking code if you want more.

I am trying to find a better more optimized solution. The affiliate tracking if you advertise a lot of offers ( i am a gambling affiliate) can be a very complicated.
