    I was trying to configure this so I could track conversions by keyword. There are instructions on CB how to configure Conversion Goals but I just can't get this to work.

    Thanks man for your answer. But I already tried that and it's not working or maybe I'm doing something wrong. Thanks anyway!

    I was looking into the same thing about a week ago, but I had the same lack of success trying to figure it out.

    I am planning to upload few youtube videos and link them to my CB review website. And here is same question again, how can I track CB sales that came from youtube? Is really no one tracking their sales which came through review site?

    I have no idea about it, but if someone knows, it will be good sharing.

    Think about it, that's impossible to track.. The best you can do really is to monitor how much traffic you're getting from different sources to your CB review site, then split test by not using youtube for a week and see if you're still getting the same conversions.

    I know you would need to integrate your GA tracking code on sellers CB product page. But there is an option in CB settings where you can input your GA tracking code so I thought that if I enter code there it will automatically be integrated in header/footer on CB sellers website or something.

    Thanks, I use tracking ids for hoplinks. But this would work if linked directly from youtube to CB and I would use youtubevideono4 in my tracking id... But I need to track if someone comes to my review site and then goes to CB sales page... On my review site I use hoplinks with tracking ids like: widget1, header, etc...

    I think the tracking ids only show up when you make a sale. Hopefully somebody will let us know of the best solution.

    If you are using WP just install PrettyLink and your problems should be solved (if I understood everything correctly).

    I have all my cb links masked with redirects, so my hoplink with tracking id or without looks like myreviewsiteurl/recommended etc... But I would like to track with Google Analytics with "Goals". So I would see in GA, example:
    #1 Someone came to my review site from youtube, then he went to my masked hoplink and bought on CB.
    #2 Someone came to my review site from google organic search, then went to CB order form etc

    I know you can track each step separately but then you don't know which traffic source made sales through review site...
