    it has been at least a year or two from the time I was using adwords and overture. Somehow I was successful in it, but I never used keyword tracking on anything.

    Now I have some simple questions...

    How do you track your traffic?

    1) For an example how do you track adwords/overture traffic? I know that there is a possibility to see which keyword brought the traffic to your website, but how to determine, when it converted and etc? How do you to this with clickbank, I know you have the possibility to use tracking codes, but do you set up 10-100 landingpages made specially to this one keyword and then change the links for clickbank tracking accordingly?

    All pieces of codes and ideas are welcome - also what problems did you encounter, if any!

    2) What more you use for typical CPA landing page tracking, example for Polls and others? Since I dont know, if it is possible to see what keyword converted CPA offer to a lead?

    The reason why I am asking this is that, times have passed since I last used overture and adwords and I have learned that TRACKING IS REALLY IMPORTANT...

    I hope that this thread will help me and everyone else who has yet to overtake overture/adwords!
