Facebook Campaign Tracking (Prosper202)

Hello, i'm an active reader of this particular CPA forum and now i need some help regarding a big problem i have.

I recently decided to tackle the CPA world and started my adventure on Facebook (i have some experience in facebook ads regarding fanpages, been running it for a long time). I'm promoting registration offers, and i have a landing page that i've designed from scratch and to track the campaigns i'm using Prosper202. This is the Day2 and i'll make a profit today, it isn't much but it doesn't matter (haven't scaled yet).

My problem is on Prosper202 or Facebook, i don't really know, when i get a conversion the Prosper202 tracks it but it doesn't send any input to Facebook, so i don't really know which AD is giving me the bucks, and without it i can't scale it. I've created 4 different Conversion Pixels on Facebook using the category "Registrations" and then i created a new traffic source on Prosper and pasted the noscript url on the Pixel URL (using image pixel type). I haven't pasted any Facebook code on my webpage just the Prosper202 LP code.

Do you have any idea on what i'm doing wrong? I created 4 conversions pixels on facebook because i have 4 ads ATM, and on prosper i think if i do this i could have a better notion on which ad is performing well.

Thank you in advance for reading this wall of text lol.

    Each ad needs to have it's own unique P202 tracking link with it's own keyword and you need to place the Prosper pixel on the offer you are promoting. Then you will easily be able to see which ads are converting and which aren't.

    Give each of your ad a nick name and assign it as a C value. Then you'll know which ad is converting

    For each ad i've created a new pixel on Prosper202 for the traffic source i've created "Facebook". I think the problem is here, i might be placing the pixels on the wrong place.

    On the offer i have the Prosper202 pixel, but the problem is when i get a conversion it tracks it on the affiliate and Prosper, but facebook stays with a 0. So it seems the Prosper isn't communicating with Facebook. ( i also get an unverified status on the facebook pixels)

    Sandakelum, i didn't understood what you meant with the "assign it as a C value."

    Thanks for your help

      For now, don't worry about the Facebook pixels. What the others have suggested, is that you track your ad copies within Prosper. I agree that this is the best thing to do, and when you set it up correctly, you won't even need conversion data in Facebook.

      When you're on step 7, where you create your tracking link, have a look at "c1", "c2", "c3", and "c4" fields. These will allow you to track extra data points. You may use them if you wanted to split test between age ranges, genders, relationship status, ect. Since you're only concerned about tracking ad copy at this point, let's leave these alone for now.

      Just go ahead and create a single link. You'll use this link in all your ads, you'll just modify a little piece on the end for each one. The last part of the link will be "&202keyword=". This part of the link traditionally tracks keyword data, but you can use it to track ad copies. Just add some tag to the end of the link so you can match it to the ad you're using it in. For example, your first ad will have "&202keyword=AD1". Your second will have "&202keyword=AD2" etc.

  • FYI: Prosper202 is able to fire Facebook's or any other conversion pixel you want when the Prosper202 pixel is fired.

    You'll need to use the universal smart pixel, it comes in javascript or iframe format, so it may not work with all your networks.

    I have a full tutorial and video here for facebook, the the general setup is the same for all other types of pixels.
