    Hey guys,
    I have a problem.

    I have this client of mine for whom I am doing SEO for quite some time.

    I got his site to very good rankings and everything is going good.

    He however is interested in switching to revenue sharing for which I need to figure out a way on how to configure traffic to be tracked properly, because he has other channels of traffic (including affiliate network).

    Problem is that he is in the browser based games segment and his games are free. Users upgrade eventually after some time. Might be even after the 3rd month.

    I am not sure if analytics can be setup to track for so long on such goals and relate them to organic traffic.

    Anyone experienced in setting up such tracking?

    Much thanks in advance!

    How does he track his affiliates? Could he set you up with your own customized affiliate account to track the paying customers that you bring in?

    Affiliates are being tracked through their unique Aff IDs.

    Organic traffic has no such aff IDs.
