    I always just use aweber and clone my web forms and then clone my squeeze page too

    Doing things this way you can see at a glance in your aweber account all the different solo ads and the different opt in rates

    I have found this to be the easiest way

      I agree with you Paul, but in my experience it doesn't really matter with some vendors. They'll claim they delivered all clicks and stand by their own BS even if you set up reliable tracking on your own and can prove that they haven't been delivered. I know that's anecdotal but reading this thread kind of made me LOL. Oh well, live n' learn.

        I know what you mean, this is why it's so important to only use proven and tested solo ads

        There is a lot of garbage out there but there are also solo ads that have worked awesome for me

        One solo I purchased cost me around $45 and I made back almost $90 just on the front end :-)

            Been using for a year, and love it, especially using with WordPress

            That and Quality Click Control, which is a much needed upgrade to ATG depending on if you sell solo, swap, or bank clicks

    The best way to track solo ads by far is hyper tracker...

    And it is very important that you do, becasue knowing wich solo ad provider gave you better results is a BIG deal!

    With hyper tracker you can make custom links that shows the amount of clicks that your solo ad got... this way you can create 2 separate links for each solo ad and then just see which solo ad gave you better results.

    Hyper Tracker... it is one of the main tools you will need if you plan on becoming a master of solo ads.

      The only problem with this is that you don't have control as to when the solo ad goes out.

    I personally use Adtrackz Gold and I have happy with it. I am able to track my squeeze page conversion from the different solo ads that I am getting. If you are selling your own product, you can even use this script to track the sales so that you will know the sales is coming from which solo ads.

    I use the "pro" version of ClixTrac - Free Banner Tracking, Link Tracking, Ad Tracking and Click Tracking to track conversions and unique/raw clicks and the referring traffic source (helps a lot when buying solo ads).

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Coby

    hi i have just been reading your post. I have just started with solo ads and have signed up with adtrax gold. At the moment they are offering to install the software free. They have set it up on my website and it is working well. I know other online marketers who are using them as well with great results. Hope this helps

    Just started using Adtrackz Gold over the last couple of weeks. I got it because I'm about to purchase several solo ads and wanted to make sure I kept up with which vendor yielded the best results. If you're going to spend money, it is VITAL that you track your results or else you're just throwing money out of the window.

      I'm sure the OP has found a solution.

      What i found useful is bevomedia. I'm able to track solo ads and not have to go into another platform to track my ppv/ppc campaign.
      Everything on one platform.

    You can use notlong.com which is a free link shortener with tracking included.
    Simply use tags at the beginnning of the shortened links to distinguish between the two different solo ads.
    Tracking stats include total hits and unique hits.

    I'm using CPVlabs for all my tracking because it does everything. rotates landing pages, rotates offers etc... You can get pretty sophisticated if you want or just use it for direct linking too. It's amazing. You can track just about anyting with it.

    Adtrakz gold is limited but I hear it works great if you're just going to do solo ads.

      Hi Nics, may i know what do you mean by it "rotates landing pages and rotates offers"?

      Does this mean cpvlab automatically rotates this for you without you having to manually change the offer or the links?

    I see that Quality Click Control has not been mentioned yet

    It's a bit like Adtrackz Gold but pricier and has a few more features

    For example you can cloak an affiliate link and limit who can see the offer based on the country they are in. You can re-direct the rest of the traffic to something else. Useful if you want traffic from certain countries only

    There is also a feature where you can set the maximum number of click for one link. After that your traffic is taken to a different link. Used a lot by solo ad sellers. Or if you want to split test a sales page / squeeze page you can set it up as a rotator so you each version of a page gets an even amount of clicks.

    You can generate tracking codes to embed in thankyou/download pages to track optins and sales

    Hi

    Is there any way you can see who is behind the
    click and if it converts on the confirmation page.

    Like johndoe@dooh.com clicks the ad on list ABC.
    He comes to the page He fills out the form. Now
    I can see that johndoe clicked my ad from list ABC
    and also opt-in?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    I use click meter. There are a few wordpress plugins you can use also. Pretty Links being one of them. If you want in depth information like location of the clicks and IP address to be sure you are not being scammed by your solo ad provider, I would go with a plugin that captures the information or a service like click meter.

    The tracked link provider I use is: Track Your Links


    If you would like to track your own links (highly recommended), you can sign up for a free id there.

    Or you can plug in a cloaking WP plugin that not only counts the clicks but keep detailed stats where the click is coming from... I use MaxPress NINJA Affiliate.

    Created yourself a tracking link with somebody like clickmeter and you can create one for each list provider. Another way is to create a second landing page and you can track the results on each individual landing page with somebody like analytics and really monitor what your visitor is doing and for how long. Learn from what your viewers are doing and make changes to increase your roi.

    I use Ad Tracz Gold, track the clicks, the action (optin) and my sales funnel also.

    The good news it's you only pay for the software one time (not recurring service) and really easy to use.

    I used to mentor IM and spoke with lots of new marketers... one of the biggest issues is nobody tracks their marketing. Please do this, for YOUR sake. You will make many costly mistakes when you assume which traffic is working for you.

    One time, someone was buying traffic and thought it was making them lots of money. I had them install tracking and we found out the traffic had 0 conversions, it was all SEO! LOL!

    So please get a legit tracking setup going on. I promise you it is worth the time, effort and money it will take to get it setup correctly.

    If you are selling a product DIRECTLY to them, it is pretty easy.

    I used to do this through Clickbank. You can do that from there and know which vendor got you what sale.
