    I used the search button. But nothing. prosper202, subids, conversion pixel. Too much! Can someone in easy language explain the subids and {keyword} token and how it tracks. I just dont get it when person searches on google, than clicking on my ad so google tells me what key got person to my landing page. Than hes clicking on the link, banner, image w/e and getting to the offer. Than putting his email (email submit) and getting on thank you page. Now Question: How the hell cpa network knows what keyword he used on google???

    Are you selling your own products? or affiliate products?
    If your selling your own you can find tutorials on Youtube how to set up tracking.... Most accounts what are selling affiliate links get banned, I have used prosper202, you can find zillion tutorials about prosper202.

    However now I'm using CPVlab, best tracking system I know of and easy to use.
    Hope this helps you out...

    Home Page:
    If you're selling your own product with control of your own landing page, it's easy. You install the Adwords conversion tracker code. You can use the same code for any URL, any site you own. The code is placed only on the conversion confirmation page.

    Once that done, it will increase the count on a conversion in your Adwords account any time that page is reached when a visitor clicked your ad. No need to add {keyword} or any other tokens. Bing's Adcenter and other PPC services have the same kind of thing.

    If it's an affiliate product, you'll need some other tool such as Prosper mentioned in previous post. As I don't do affiliate stuff, I'm not sure how that works exactly. A short-lived client used it a few years ago but as I recall, you will need to use tokens in your destination URL. I don't believe the granularity will be as good as using Adwords' tracker but better than nothing.

    The problem with a zillion tutorials is a handful are good and most of the zillion are garbage. I am also trying to figure out how to use prosper202 for affiliate products and am having a horrible time finding any helpful info.

    Well thats why I bought CPVLab, it's really the best out there. Just the price are is high. It's really easy to use, and loads of features which prosper202 didn't had at that time. Just soon after I bought CPVlab google banned me :y:
