Tracking pixels”

This page contains the essential information about S2S postback URL, click tracking options for your self-hosted landing pages, and tracking pixels.

S2S postback and secure S2S postback from this section are Postback templates that can be easily copied with the help of the “Copy” button, edited through the appropriate affiliate network settings and used on the side of the affiliate network. Also, the section contains such elements as a code for a one-offer landing page, Click URL, a code for a multi-offer landing page, a multi-offer Click URL, an iFrame pixel, Image pixel, JavaScript pixel provided by default.

If you use different domains in your campaigns, in order to learn the corresponding Click URL and pixel links, you can select a campaign from the drop-down list and generate Click URLs and tracking pixels for a given campaign.

If you want to display only basic information, you can hide the description and examples of using pixel tracking on this page with the help of the “Hide description” button.

Here are the basics of our postback and its parameters:

http://ххххх.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track?tid=YOUR_NETWORK_TOKEN&amt=REPLACE&txid=REPLACE&cdata=YOUR _CUSTOM_DATA&status=REPLACE

ххххх – your unique subdomain in our system.

adsbtrk – the AdsBridge system domain reserved for tests.

tid is meant to transfer the AdsBridge Click ID from the affiliate network back to the tracker. This is the only mandatory parameter in postback, without which the conversions will not be transmitted. In this parameter after the equal mark (=), you are supposed to insert the affiliate network macro instead of YOUR_NETWORK_TOKEN. The macro will be later replaced by the value that came in the parameter entered in the Token ID field during the offer set-up.

amt – transfers the dynamic value of the conversion payout.

txid is a setting applied to CPS offers only. It allows you to keep track of multiple conversions with a single Click ID.

status – transmits the conversion status.

cdata – with the correct settings, it passes any parameter directly to the traffic source, without saving and displaying it on the AdsBridge platform.

For the postback to operate properly, it’s necessary to replace the placeholders YOUR_NETWORK_TOKEN, REPLACE, YOUR _CUSTOM_DATA by the corresponding parameters of your affiliate network (you can learn them from the representatives of your affiliate network). As for the remaining part, which will not be used to send any information, you can delete it.

 

If you need to set tracking pixel for your own website on the “Thank you” page, then it’s possible to select one of the pixels of your preference (img, js, or iframe), and place it on your website. For example, let’s have a look at img tracking pixel:

<img style=”display: none;” src=”http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?tid=YOUR_NETWORK_TOKEN&amp;amt=REPLACE&amp;txid=REPLACE&amp;status=REPLACE” />.

In order for the pixel to work properly, you need to place it on the “Thank you” page as follows:

<img style = “display: none;” src = “http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?”>.

 

If you want to keep track of multiple conversions on your own website with a single user Click ID (for example, subscription + purchase), then enable the CPS option in the offer options (in this case, the website URL will serve as an offer) and place the following pixels on the “Thank you” page:

  • after     the subscription     – <img style = “display: none;” src =     “http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?txid=subscription“>,
  •   after     the purchase     – <img style = “display: none;” src =     “http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?txid=sale“>.

Subsequently, in the column for the transaction ID in the AdsBridge’s “Conversion Report”, you will see the value of “subscription” in case of a subscription and “sale” in case of a purchase.

 

If you want to keep track of the conversion statuses on your own website and have the option to add an automatic or manual substitution of certain values ​​to the tracking pixel, you can also set it up on AdsBridge. To do this, you need to create an affiliate network with the active “Conversion statuses” option, specify the conversion status that will be considered as confirmed, (for example, “approved”) and use, say, such pixel tracking formats as:

  • <img     style=”display: none;”     src=”http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?status=new“>     for a new conversion;
  • <img     style=”display: none;”     src=”http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?status=canceled“>     for a canceled conversion;
  • <img     style=”display: none;”     src=”http://xxxxx.adsbtrk.com/trackpixel/track.jpg?status=approved“>     for an approved conversion.

With this setup, all the conversion statuses will be displayed in the “Status” column within the “Conversion report” (provided that the Status checkbox is selected). Besides, the “General report” will display only approved conversions.
