How to view referrer for affiliate links?

6 replies
Just as the title suggests, how can I view the referrer url (the site my traffic clicks my link from) for my affiliate links? Is there a program or site that will allow me to see this? I am currently running Maxbounty offers if that makes a difference. Input is appreciated.

Thanks

      Thanks for the reply but this doesn't pertain to what I'm looking for. I want to see the referrer url for clicks and leads on my MB links.

    The referer URL is only available to the web site on which your link targets. For instance, a ClickBank link targets the CB web site. CB is informed of the referer URL, but typically does NOT forward that info to the affiliate.

    To overcome this limitation, some affiliate networks will allow the creation of a "tracking id" to be appended to each of your affiliate links, so that the affiliate can know source of the click. Unfortunately, Maxbounty is neither the merchant, nor the affiliate network so the best you can do (probably) is to use a different "tracking id" for each ad.

    Since that ad is probably posted on multiple sites... my guess is that "tracking id" still doesn't get you to a specific referer URL

    Two minutes on Google:

    The ClickMeter Integration for MaxBounty Postback URLs
    ClickMeter is already integrated with MaxBounty, so using the ClickMeter Postback URL builder to set up conversion tracking for MaxBounty only takes seconds.



    How to set up conversion tracking for MaxBounty
    In case you would like to set up S2S (cookie-less server-to-server) conversion tracking outside of ClickMeter, you can follow these procedures to create the postback URL.


    1. Add the following Click-ID (Sub-ID) to the offer's URL: ?s1=[s2sidentifier]
    For example, www.mb102.com/Web-Marketing?s1=[s2sidentifier]

    2. Use the following token in the postback URL you submit to the affiliate platform: #S1#

    3. For the commission amount, use the following token: #RATE#

    The following is an example of the code you need inside the "server-to-server conversion (postback URL)" section of your MaxBounty account:

    conversions.clickmeter.com/s2s?clickId=#S1#&id=CA30FB...B6E5DD41D1E6&value=0. 00&com=#RATE#

  • Do a Google search on "Adrian Ling", and buy his Clickbank affiliate program software. It's capable of doing what you're looking for.
