    Just that, how could I possible know whether a person or not has completed an offer?

    Say for example, if a person fills in a dating offer. How could I possibly know if this is actually true?

    Maybe copying the link after filling in the offer?

    Nothing like that, im not trying to generate fake leads or anything as such. just curious as to what kindda proof could you obtain from your customers who filled in such offer/made purchase/etc.

    If the offer has IP tracking you could check to see if the IP's match. If you are allowing access to content you could then allow just the IP's that completed the offer.

    Reyone,

    There could be a lot of different ways to track behaviors online. It could be that some sort of validation takes place and you get an email or maybe a cookie is set in the user's browser and you track them through third party software on your site using that. You could also potentially show them content that they would use to validate that they had completed the offer.

    Another idea is to track users based on a cookie you set in their browser when they arrive at the page and set up a filter in analytics to only register a goal from users who have the cookie set and also fill out the form or whatever you have them doing.

    Heres a post about excluding visitors based on cookies,

    Hope that points you in the right direction,
