    Ok so i have a very minor problem i think , but i just cant seem to fix it . Actually there are 2 problems


    1.I am using a separate link per each image to get the tracking right , example if i am running a campaign for xyz.com ,
    then my first image link would be : xyz.com?trackingid=1stimage
    and second image link would be : xyz.com?trackingid=2ndimage


    and so on , Okay , so i can always go to power editor and change the links one by one , but it does take a lot of time , if there was any automated process to do this ? or any other way in power editor to change links together of all of them , ?


    I tried using adespresso , amazing tool to create combination of ads , but the thing is they dont allow links per image , if i were to try something like this in there , then i would get multiple combinations for each link , as in the first image would link to all the 5 tracking links and the 2nd image too , and so on ..


    SO any solution for me ? to save my time ?




    2. Ok this is a pretty basic problem , the FB pixel for conversions , i did exactly as said , pasted it in the thankyou page of my website , and added a purchase value of 1$ , which would show up in my ads manager after i enable the column for pixel conversions, however i tested going to the page , and it never showed up in my ads manager column , ok so then i thought , maybe it will work only if someone clicks on the ad and goes there , i let it running the whole night and the next day i did get a few conversions in my fb ads column , but the numbers are so far off , i get 6 conversions in my FB ads manager , and in reality its more than 15 conversions. Where am i going wrong ?


    I first thought the problem might be because i am using different ads which links to the same thankyou page , so if anyone visits the thank you page from any ad , it will show up as a conversion for all the ads , but then someone corrected me saying that it does not work that way ...So still puzzled!


    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!

    I'm not exactly understanding your questions, perhaps you need to write them more clearly?

    Anyways, I think you're trying to do something with the FB ads that is not directly available out of the box. While not change your method and use more of the build-in FB tools?

    Leave the first problem , my 2nd problem involves using FB ads tools , i am just trying to setup a basic conversion , like when a user visits my thankyou page after buying a product , i want the pixel to fire to FB , and show up as a conversion and the purchase rate [which i have set earlier ] in the ads manager columns , it just isnt working out no matter what i do!

    wow that is too technical...... are you trying to get your fb pages get the stats of the total transactions made?
