    Hi guys

    Currently my bing PPC goes straight to vendor sales page with tracking link relevant to each bing advert so i know where sales are coming from.
    i`m in process of having squeeze page built but thinking then i`m going to lose tracking info? any suggestions on how i manage to find out which advert has sent the traffic

    Also ive registered a domain to setup a MNS and want opt-in on different site. do i setup sub domain such as optin.mysite and install squeeze there or use mysite/optin and have it there.
    which will work and rank better

    Thanks

    You could do that in 2 different ways, the first one is using the conversion tracking bing ads provides, which is hosted by them. Here is a tutorial

    This is for the opt-in page going to the vendor page and tracking the conversion.
    Go to campaigns > Manage your analytics settings > Create Goal > Add 2 new steps > 1st step will have Land Type and the 2nd step will have a Browse Type, it should look like this http://prntscr.com/4df5qz

    After that go to Revenue to track down below > Select Constant (if you get a constant amount each time) and put the amount you get for each conversion > Go to conversion period and set it up to preferably 15 days (in case you have a follow up email sequence it will help keep the stats tracked for 15 days). > Click Save and Generate

    You will get 3 tracking codes (tracking pixels), the opt-in page, vendor page and conversion. Copy each of them and them to the appropriate pages, the conversion pixel will be added inside your affiliate network. Now you are done with everything.

    The second option is using a self-hosted tracking software like prosper202, cpvlab, or a tracking websites like voluum.com (it's currently in beta stage and costs nothing, till september). There are plenty of tutorials on forums and youtube so check them out.

    With the money site I would recommend doing it the second way, mysite/optin, in my opinion it looks a lot more professional but theres no difference, just preference.

    Hope that helped.

    Hi so i`d copy the code from bing into wordpress somehow? does google analytics have a widget?
    also can`t choose constant as varies depending on what "extras" people buy?

    appreciate your help greatly

    Here is a wordpress plugin that will help you with javascript, there's a tutorial as well: http://wordpress.org/plugins/css-javascript-toolbox/

    If your getting different payouts based on what people buy you can use the 2nd option, variable, in this case you won't get the amount of earnings displayed on bing but you will get the amount of conversions. You will have to track manually the amount of commissions earned, which is pretty enjoyable :p
