    Hello

    Kinda new to PPC, Ive found a cash positive venture and Im tying to refine to make more money. I was wondering, how can I track conversions if Im sending them to a 3rd part site?

    If yall have any free or very cheap suggestions I would really appreciate it.

    Also my click thru rate is .53 is this decent for search engine PPC? My conversion rate at this point is .05, is this decent? Obviously I want to do better, just wondering thats all.

    Unfortunately there's not a simple way to track conversions if you don't have access to the website on which the conversions are made. You are either going to have to request access to the site's statistics or trust them to be honest with you about the number of conversions you bring.

    Basically, what needs to happen is that the person to whose site you're sending people has to place your "tracking code" on their "thank you" page, or the equivalent of that. That way you will know that a person got to a landing page, and then went through the conversion process, and landed on the thank-you-page, thus letting you know that the conversion took place.

    PPC = pay per click, so you used a slightly wrong term, as far as I understand.

    Ask the 3rd party if you can have a tracking code on the landing page - some may let you, some may not.

    if its third party site you can either do via tracking the goal urls or ask them to have a provision to return goal notification.
