    I've seen this "pixel fires after blah blah" so many times in many offers descriptions. But what does it really mean? let's say in an offer description we have:

    Payout occurs when: User enters their email address, user-name, password on the first page. Pixel fires after the user completes an offer or survey in the members area.

    So when exactly am i being paid? after email, username password registration or when someone completes an offer in members area?

    Home Page:
    It just means they load a 1 pixel by 1 pixel image on the page. It's not noticeable to viewers, but it can be used for tracking purposes since they can track whenever that picture loads on a page.

    Thanks man, got the whole concept and of course I finally did understand why Google is so popular.

    So it means that I get nothing unless someone that I send from my tracking links fill a survey in members area, am I right?

    Keep track of your conversions, the pixel will fire when the offer is completed. Its for tracking purposes.

    armin64,

    Glad it helped you, and as you can see yes it keeps track of completed tasks. Sorry if I came off as a houses rear end. It was a bad night...

    The whole "use Google" thing makes it sound like questions are no longer welcome :(

    Jector82, questions are fine, but quite literally if your going to ask a question that can be answered within the first or second link of the first page on Google. It kind of comes off as wanting to be spoon fed rather than really wanting to know the answer to something.

    Before I ever ask a question I here I spend some time doing my own research, and only once I've realized I personally can't find the answer, then I'll ask others here what the answer might be.

    If you spend more than 10 minutes trying to find the answer in the obvious places, and can't find it, I don't think anyone would have any problems sharing their sometimes hard earned knowledge, but if you're just kind of looking for a general answer to a general question, you need to do a little of your own research...

    Just my thoughts...

    At BHW, you are learning great things about how to be successful in IM -- the methods can be BH or WH or AnyColorHat, but here you learn to find things and try to make those things work better for you. Here, members also help you if you're facing some difficulty while learning. Here, members provide you with tools and books to help you meet your goals, or to help you decide on which goals you should have in your sights. Here members also help you to find out what made your GF/BF run away from you...

    So ask question by all means -- but atleast, learn to use Google first if your answer can be found there easily. And if you find a great answer/solution to your question that may be also useful to other members here, then write about how you had a question and how you found a great solution (which you think would be useful to our members here also).

    So as a good member and the one who doesn't believe in getting spoon-fed on all types of petty issues, it would be better to try and find out the solutions yourself first.

    Also, if someone says use G first, then there is no need to shout "THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD!" (for another example, 'The whole "use Google" thing makes it sound like questions are no longer welcome'...)

    @ Him/her: Think about why the member is asking someone to use Google and understand... it is also one of the great processes that will help someone become a better online marketer and the 'doomsayer' who is helping no one will remain where ever he is...

    So you see, all questions are welcome here but ask it after you at least try to find an answer in the search engines first. You may even get a lot of great information in the process and that can make you a master over that particular issue and which would indeed be a great blessing in disguise... :)

    Scene I:
    You had a question first -- you did a proper research then -- got the answer easily and also got some insider information on how to use the solution -- you researched more, this time in a more focused way -- got more and more information -- would the knowledge help other and can it help you (and others) make more money?


    Scene II:
    You had a question first -- you did a proper research then -- got the answer easily -- problem solved!

    Scene III:
    You had a question first -- you did a proper research then -- didn't get the answer easily -- by all means, go ahead and put up your question here! Your question is most welcome! :)

    I have been trying to get pixel tracking to fire upon entering a thank you page and its not working with this iframe pixel code snippet my CPA network wants me to use. My rep told me he doesn't know how to get it to work with paypal cause 99 percent of the affiliates don't use paypal. Anyone here know if the pixel fire success rate is increased by using a preload image?
