    I started with P202 and ended on CPVLab. Basically it was easier to use and less frustrating when needing to track and rotate my PPV campaigns between multiple landing pages, each with multiple offers. Easy to swap offers in and out and I like the ability to easily deactivate a LP or offer or change the weightings for the rotations. There's an import feature which allows you to import your campaigns from an Excel CSV file to save typing as well.

    I'm also testing BevoMedia right now and it seems easier to setup compared to P202. Not sure how it will handle under load as I run my own VPS server.

    Prsoper202 is free; the others will cost you something each month.

    Many people say CPVlab is the best.

    I use HyperTracker. There is also AdtrackzGold.

      I bought CPVLab at a discount through one of the paid forums last year, but I don't think that's running anymore. Currently listed at $297 but it has saved me hours and hours of time. Be interested to see if there are any others out there apart from P202 and Bevo.

      Easier to use than P202. You can setup tracking in a few clicks. Haven't used it enough to compare directly with CPVLab.

      CPVLab can be licensed for approximately $250 one-time fee. Does anyone know if there is a separate use charge (i.e. monthly fee)? And how expensive does it get?

      Also, anyone using CPVLab for banner campaigns? How effective is it?

    I love CPVLab and use it for pretty much everything. I am developing a custom platform but for now I say CPVLab hands down.

    I hear good things about Bevo but I never really got into it.

    Prosper202 is fine for just starting out. CpvLab is great however. I believe there is only a one time signup fee for CpvLab.

    Prosper don't work, no1 has posted in their forums for over a year. I downloaded it and installed it, didn't do anything. I just get a blank page. I tested by putting echo "test"; in top of the index.php and it printed to screen but nothing else worked.

    I went to the forums and a few other people had the same problem, I bounced the posts to top of the list saying I had the same problem, realized the posts were from over a year ago... check when the last post on the forum was: Nov2011...

    I sent support an email 5 days ago still haven't recieved a reply yet.

        Most tracking software are either subscription services that need no installation or they have to be installed on a server, ideally VPS or dedicated.

          Even then...

          Any idea what could be the cause of the blank screen? I'm using a brand new installation of Plesk on Hostgator VPS.
          I have extracted to root directory, and I put at the top of the index.php
          Code:
          <?php
          echo "test";
          ...
          It outputs test but does nothing else.

          Also on index.php there's no closing php tags. Possible there's a corrupt download?

          Can I start with Prosper202 on normal host, I would buy VPS later on?
          It is: Plesk /Windows.
          Any specific things if it can be installed?

    CPVLab is great for PPV. The only choice in my book.

    Prosper202 works great for PPC.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6844561].message }}
  • Just to chime in:

    Many of you don't know this, but Tracking202 is a one man show. So I ended the free support many months ago, because at this point it's impossible for me to support 40K + users.

    https://getsatisfaction.com/tracking...ing202_support

    At some point, there's a limit to how much free stuff I can give out.

    Even then, I occationally stop by the forum to help out on a problem if it's a quick fix.

    I give my time and attention to my paid users who currently have direct access to me via Skype, cell phone, email etc.

    I like prosper because it is really easy to use and there are some really cool features that let you see which ad and keyword is converting for which offer. You have to be a tiny bit technical to upload to your server.....but no biggie.

    CPVlab is the best for me, easy to change anything. If you don't want to wait 30 days for the coupon sent to your Paypal account, there is an other discount of a guy called Lee, 50$ off immediately.

    I would prefer CPVLab over Prosper202. Prosper202 didn't work well for my business and their customer service wasn't much help (maybe it's just me).

    Bevo i heard great things about it, would definitely give it a try, but I'm quite satisfied with CPVLab at the moment.

    CPVLAb is the best of the 2 as it has more ability to track data.

    If starting out most people say to use Prosper, however I feel CpvLab is worth investing in due to the simplicity of setting campaigns up, and the amount of campaign options you have available to track.

    You will need your own Server but if you go to any decent company like LiquidWeb they will easily set up your tracking for you for free.

    Like all tracking they have there issues, and take some time to fully understand but for me CpvLab is the one for newbies or vets alike. Though you may opt out of the yearly updates I wouldn't as it keeps you in check with what you need as a marketer.

    Saying that I will be moving over too iMobiTrax in the new year, as it is waaay more better and gathering Parameter Tokens and recording what is actually getting you the conversions plus the guys who own it over at IMGrind are really cool, and STILL in the CPA game so give constant updates which is great.

    Yeah, last time I mailed them they were building new features like mobile support.

    Anyway, how can I delete subid's from not converting subids.

    I thought I found the function but it deleted every conversion, F**#$&CK.

    I see you can use IP's to remove them but one of my affiliate networks doesn't provide the complete IP so it's a lot of work finding them all.

    If landing pages setup/split testing is what stops you to use Prosper202 than my multi-variate testing tool(http://www.warriorforum.com/ad-netwo...-feedback.html) will help you a lot. It has a built in custom weighted rotator and to setup tens of pages for split testing takes 3 minutes. You don't have to grab tracking link for each lander, you don't have to set up a new php page to track outbound links, you don't even need to upload the new page versions to your hosting, it will do it automatically.

    Prosper is very powerful, but it's not so friendly, but with the right tools, it becomes a very reliable solution.
