Sub ID question with CPA Networks

by Ron Diamond 5 replies
Guys, my CPA Network allows me to use up to 4 sub IDs but I need more than 4 for tracking purposes. I think I have a way around this but just wanted to check if I was correct...

Basically, when I choose for example, 'facebook' for Sub ID 1 it puts 'facebook' into my link, right? So I use that link for all my FB advertising.

Now, my question is, can I also put 'bing' into Sub ID 1, get a brand new link, use that for my Bing advertising and then track people who clicked that link or would it interfere with the fact I already used 'facebook' for Sub ID 1.

I mean, they would both be separate links right so I assume not.

It seems ok on my dashboard but didn't want to start running the campaigns and then have trouble with tracking.

    Yes, you can do what you are asking.

    If you need to track more in-depth than what you are allotted, you can use a third party tracker.

    From what you've explained it should work.
    Really it would be easy and better to just use a third party tracker and then just use the one subid and let your tracker track everything.

    You can pass value only in one subid dynamically and it will get tracked in the panel.

    for ex: - xyz.com?subid=facebook
    xyz.com?subid=bing

      It all depends on the network, many will accept this, but some wont.

      The AM of each network will be able to answer these questions if anyone has any confusion.

        Yeah, true that depends on network. Nut, still 3rd party tracking makes east for you add more number of sub id according to traffic source.
