Promoting an affiliate product on Clickbank that has very low gravity using BingAds. So far 20 clicks and 2 sales totalling over $116 commission. Problem is I don't know for sure which keywords have made the sales.

Is there any way to track which keywords are making sales because I'm using broad match so I can't simply create a different Clickbank TID for each keyword as each keyword is going to be different.

Is there a way of seeing the precise keyword phrase that has made a sale without having to contact the merchant to add code to his salespage?

    Depends on how you have configured the campaign. Are you using direct linking, using a landing page, or any Meta Redirect, Prospect202 use etc.?

    Get prosper202 - free option
    CPVLab - paid option but more advanced
    Thrive - also paid, more user friendly.

    Use prosper202.

    They allow clickbank tracking.

    I don't want to hold your hand here, but it involves secret key input to allow Clickbank to communicate with Prosper202 to track your sales.

    Do the rest of the research yourself.

    That's how I learn.

    Before using BingAds, you need to test... test... test...

    tid=1
    tid=2
    tid=3
    tid=4
    tid=5

    So you can see how it works.

      This will not work because this will only track your ad that made the sales, but not which keyword.

      If you want the free, but time consuming way you would make each keyword it is own ad group and in that ad you would to the TID tracking.

      For example:
      Ad Group 1: dog training
      Ad group 2: small dog training
      Ad Group 3: large dog training

      then in each ad group your ad would be the CB direct link with the TID #

      time consuming, but if you only have a few KW and ad groups you can do this quickly, and its free

        Hi all,

        I'm unable to use propser202, because i'm not self hosted, can anyone please recommend an alternative Free tracking software?

        Bevomedia has been mentioned by another warrior, has anyone used it or have experience of it?

        Thanks,

          Hi coolmoss,

          I already provided an answer to your question in this reply: http://www.warriorforum.com/pay-per-...ml#post9684875

          Clickbank has built-in support for applying conversion tracking code snippets. So if you are using Bing Ads you can apply the Bing Ads conversion tracking code, also you can include the Google Analytics tracking code snippet and track Google traffic sources as well as any others using the built in custom campaign feature in Google analytics.

          Since Clickbank added the Integrated Sales Reporting feature programs like prosper202 are no longer necessary for tracking affiliate transactions in Clickbank. Pretty much any analytical software can now do the trick. By using Google Analytics you get a lot of detail from the largest search engine on the planet, so you will definitely want to use that along with any other software you might select.

            In this scenario it sounds like the vendor will have to agree to put a tracking pixel for you on the order form.

            How reliable is that given that some of the offers when they optimize conversion will change up the order form URL's?

              Clickbank offers send users to clickbank to checkout. The order form is on Clickbank's website, so no need to get the vendor to agree to anything, nor for them to place a tracking pixel on their website, Clickbank takes care of that for you.

    There is also dynamic params you can add to link where u send traffic. Whatever tracking you end up using, you can get keyword visitor used with "{KeyWord}" on url. &sub2={KeyWord} as example.

  • Profile picture of the author Garret1
    i think the token is {Keyword}. You can place that in the url to pass the keyword through.
    You should use tracking202 and pass the keyword into that.
    Tracking202 is free

    Hey I know I'm late to the discussion but I have a question about this.

    If you get a vendor to place a UET (universal event tracking) code on their sales confirmation page do you still need a free tracking service? From what I know you shouldn't, because Bing should do the tracking for you right?

    What's the difference if I reply here vs start a new thread? I thought it would be better to reply rather than start a separate thread.
