    hi guys

    I am running a PPC ads - but i dont know how to track the PPC ads to my sales? I don't want to reveal my keywords to the VENDOR - so i am erasing all referrer info. Which makes me think using the CLICKBANK PPC tracking will not work I assume?

    HOW ARE YOU GUYS TRACKING YOUR KEYWORDS to SALES CONVERSION???
    :rolleyes:

    What I do is send the traffic to a URL that has pretty links installed so for example

    Let's say I am advertising a forex product the link looks like this:

    forexproduct.com/go.php?offer=myclickbankid&pid=50&tid=KW1

    I would take this url then run it through pretty link so that it looks like this:

    yourwebsite.com/KW1

    I would then keep an excel sheet with the data for what KW1 actually is e.g KW1 = "Forex Help"

    This way the vendor does not see what websites I was advertising on or what keywords

    Hope that helps

    I use CJ and they support the SID URL-parameter. Therefore, I give each visitor a unique ID and use it for the SID parameter and I fire a GA event with same ID. Then I can easily export and merge all the data from CJ and GA.

    I buy ad space on websites so I dont use keywords as such. I just need to track what adblock / site made the conversion.

    If you are serious about ppc then install prosper202 - it's rather technical but its perfect for what you are after. YouTube has plenty of how-to videos to help set it up.
