Hey there, Sorry for the newbie question but after searching I still could not figure out Subid with Prosper. When I Set up a campaign I type in all the info. and i post the affiliate link. Here’s were I don’t understand There are 5 options [[subid]] [[c1]] [[c2]] [[c3]] [[c4]]. I do not know what to do with these for it to properly track. Also after you set that up do I then use the new link with all the added stuff or the old link?
You place "[[subid]]" where your affiliate network wants the subid.
That’s not a real URL so you’ll have to modify it with your offer’s affiliate url. Prosper202 automatically inserts the subid into the [[subid]] variable.
Edit: Not sure what you mean by use the link with the added stuff… that’s stored internally in prosper. To get the link yo use in your ads you have to go to Setup -> Get Links and use the link you generate there.
How do i Track specific things when i get link. I want to add keywords to track.
You add the "keyword" variable to the end of your tracking link. like
you get the tracking link by going to Setup -> Get Links
Ok so i understand how to add subid to my link to track it but i do not know how to coreectly set up the keywords for mobile. Does anyone know were i could find a guide or somewhere that explains how to set up the keywords correctly for mobile?
Ok so I thought maybe showing a picture would help show you guys what i don’t understand.
How do i use these correctly to Track important Mobile data like Carrier, Handset, ect.
Well I don’t know much about mobile but I do know every traffic source has their own way of inserting those variables, so it depends. I’d search the site of whatever mobile traffic source you’re using and see if you can find it there.. or ask your account manager there. Check out the mobile forum here there’s lots of info for the most popular traffic sources.
Also from what I understand, it’s advised not to use tracking software like p202 with mobile. Reason is mobile networks are much slower than regular internet connections and a ton of clicks get lost with all those redirects. Some networks with a lot of mobile offers like Neverblue have built in tracking that’s suited for mobile traffic.
