    Hello experienced marketers,

    I am new into online marketing, have been cumulating as much knowledge as I could for past 2 months, started doing test campaigns on different traffic sources etc. Got my feet wet and now trying to optimize.

    I have a technical question regarding tracking in googleanalytics and optimizepress.

    Thing is, currently, when I want to check how my landing page performs on different traffic sources, I need to clone that page and prepare 2 new links for it - one that I paste in network interface (trafficjunky, exoclick, etc), and second one, that I paste everywhere on my landing page (in images, title, all objects on the page).

    In other words, i create 2 links (in linkbuilder) for each new network/landing page combination I am testing.

    Because of that, I can track exactly what campaign from which network gives me visitors, clicks etc. However, it is pretty time consuming when you want to test many networks.

    My question is : is it possible to simplify this proccess and track it without having to create new (cloned) landing page and relinking every object on the page?

    Well, I hope I presented my problem clear enough for You guys being able to help me (english isn't my native language, so I apologize in advance if it looks like gibberish lol).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kindest regards,
    Entreri

    Just trying to figure out, you are trying to split-test the landing pages? to see which one performs better?
    if thats what it is, there's a wordpress plugin called "landing pages"
    it allows you to drive traffic to one source, and show different landing pages.
    it has templates and easy to make forms too.
    out of interest, since i'm also new in media buying, what industry are you working on?
    cheers bud

    No, I am testing only 1 landing page, but on different networks.

    I just want to know if I need to clone this landing page, create new link and paste this link in all landing page's objects each time I want to test it on new traffic source, or is there a more simple solution that will still track all things properly.

    I am working on adult niche.

    Thanks for trying to help :)
