    I know they all use scripts for conversion tracking whereas AdWords is a lot more advanced -- but would having three scripts (one for each) mess up any statistics reporting? What about conversion tracking for other ad networks -- e.g., clicksor, adbrite and all those?

    Directaccess,

    This is a very thoughtful question. Browsers execute scripts as they appear on the page. As long as users are not redirected before a script is allowed to execute, there should be no issue with having three different snippets of tracking script on your landing page.

    You will want to make sure there are no similarities with variable declaration, function name or event handler access. These can cause one script or all scripts on your page to become inoperable. While this may be unlikely among major online advertisers, it doesn't hurt to check.

    On this same note, it is a good idea to have all of these types of scripts installed in the head section of your HTML so that users who bounce before the page is fully loaded are still counted.

    Hopefully this helps you,
