    Hi,

    I have a question about tracking conversions and hopefully you guys can help me out...


    I'm promoting several offers with Facebook Ads, and currently, if I'm promoting an offer via a landing page (not direct linking) and want to track the individual performance of each & every ad, I need to use a different landing page URL & affiliate URL (w/ a different SubID) to be able to know which ad converts, which doesn't, etc, anyway, my question is, is there an easier way to track the individual performance of ads, considering that I'm promoting them via a landing page? I can't think of anything at the moment & am not sure that Prosper202 can help here...

    Let me know if you have any ideas!

    Thanks!

    P202 is the best way to go ..you can easily setup tracking links for your landing page(s), and for each adcopy use different subid

    P202 is the cheap way. You can track almost everything provided that you setup everything accordingly.
    From referrer to conversion.

    It is a basic requirement if you are serious in making money.

    ps: you don't need to assign subid with p202 bcos they can be track automatically i.e. you know which ad and where did the conversion come from from the statistic data (provided that you setup everything accordingly)

    You need to setup everything accordingly or you'll end up with half-complete data.

    Utilise the c1= , c2= to gain more insight/ properly structure your tracking.
    You'll end up with something manageable like this

    @goines: So basically I would need to create a simple campaign, and than at the end of the generated link (for instance http://txxxxxxx.com/redirect/dl.php?t202id=551&t202kw=) I should add SubID's which identify the ad & other information I want to track (so something like: http://txxxxxxx.com/redirect/dl.php?t202id=551&t202kw=1-2535, where 1 identifies a particular ad copy and 2535 means that that ad is targeting people aged 25-35), correct? If that is correct, in what cases do I need the c1=, c2=, etc?

    @r4ys--: Thanks!

    idk if u ask me or goines but here is the answer anyway

    c1, c2, c3, c4 is helpful when you want to view your data by group
    (http://p202.com/tracking202/overview/group-overview.php)
    You can use keyword too of you want.

    The example that I attached above is from my backpage testing data, which I use c1 for state and c2 for server code, adcopy # as kw
    It depends on your creativity and the way you want to populate your data.

    You can use e.g. c1=ad copy, c2=exact age, c3=state, c4=gender
    or c1=exact age and kw=adcopy
    Just make sure there are no "space" between the words or you'll end up with incomplete url
    Some say u can use %20 to replace space but idk, never tried it.

    Meanwhile for subid, I think someone need to learn more bout subid before giving advice to other.
    you should add sub-id when you create a link in "Campaign" Tab under Setup.
    In the Affiliate URL, add [[subid]] to the end of your tracking link
    e.g. http://offerlink.co/?a=25&c=69&s1=[[subid]]

    It will be helpfull to do that. When there is a conversion, you just need to copy the conversion id to your p202.
    P202 will update your stats automatically and show which ad brings in conversion.

    If you setup your tracking properly, you will know which link/age/city/demo brings in conversion.
    The question is not "Can p202 track?" but more to "To what extend I want to track?"

    p/s: you can use postback to automatically detect conversion
