    Hello BHW!

    I've been busting my balls to find more info about tracking pixels...I understand the function but here's my question.

    Can 1 tracking pixel that I provide to my CPA network...Neverblue, be used to track multiple traffic sources? Such as adwords, trafficvance & adbrite?

    I've been using subids but it's getting out of control. Thought a universal pixel, if such a thing exists or can be created, would be a much better solution.

    And can a tracking pixel give as much data as a subid?

    Thanks Everyone...I appreciate any assistance with this.

    Yes, yes and yes. A pixel will basically pass the subid to your tracking software.

    THank You for your help!

    Would you happen to know if there is some sort of univeral tracking pixel script?

    Some of my traffic sources don't offer pixels and also since I use multiple tracking sources...and the affiliate networks in most cases will only place 1 pixel on an offer page, a universal pixel would be the best solution.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you again for your Help!

    You can always use google analytics - place one tracking pixel on your convert page and they will tell you where it came from.

    Hello JMH,

    I was thinking about that, but I use multiple traffic sources. I looking into Google Cross Channel tracking, but from what I read, it appears that isn't very accurate when using sources such as TrafficVance.

    Have you any experience with the Cross Channel tracking in Google?

    Thanks

    Go with prosper202 (the one I'm using) or extreme tracking.
