    So I'm going through the steps to set up tracking on tracking202.com. I get to the final step and it gives me this:

    Global Tracking Pixel
    Here is the tracking pixel for your t202 account, give this to the network or advertiser you are working with and ask them to place it on the confirmation page. With the pixel installed on the confirmation page, everytime you get a lead or sale, it will fire the pixel and update your leads automatically when this pixel fires. If you are confused about which pixel you need, the secured or the unsecured, please contact the advertiser or network and they should be able to tell you which one you'll need.

    Unsecured http:// link
    <img height="1" width="1" border="0" style="display: none;" src="http://static.tracking202.com/gpx/d98kd9d9d8d7d7ss434"/>



    Is this just wishful thinking on tracking202's part? How many CPA networks will take the time to take YOUR lousy tracking pixel and insert it on their site?

    If this were the case, then nobody could bitch about the CPA networks shaving their profits. So how many CPA networks do or allow this? Has anyone done this?

    Some of the more advanced networks allow this on the fly/automated so just YOUR aff links have the pixel inserted on the payment page. I believe this is also a standard feature of DirectTrack based networks (COPEAC, Clickbooth, etc.)

    This is actually pretty standard; just ask your affiliate manager to place the pixel for you and they'll even help you test it, usually.

    if your network cant do this little
    thing, they are not worth your
    traffic,time, effort and money.

    OK, so if this can be done - then why are people bitching about getting their earnings shaved? If you have a tracking pixel and the stats, you've got proof that you made the sale.

    You guys sayin' that certain CPA companies will still fuck you even with your own tracking pixel in place?

    ..or anyone who is complaining just doesn't know how to set up their campaign properly?
