I know this is a basic question but I looked through the search and couldn’t find anything. I used the same settings that were in the screenshots in the email course to set up my ppv campaign, I am direct linking with this campaign.
I’m using &keyword=KEYWORD for the url append token and keyword for the keyword token. I also have the keyword pass through checked within leadimpact.
Looks like views are showing up, but when I click on stats it shows nothing.
Also I just started this campaign today but it already has almost 400 views.
I set up the offer and the only other thing I did was add the pixel to the network. Is this all the necessary steps?
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Yes, in LI, you need to tick "Keyword Pass-Through". I miss that sometimes.
In CPVlab, the url under the heading "Campaign URL" is rather long — the one that looks like this:
Just to make sure, when you pasted it into LI (under "Landing Page URL", sometimes also called "Destination URL"), did you remember to first cut off the tail? ("keyword=%KEYWORD%")?
About getting it to show up in CPVlab: here’s a neat trick I use to make sure that the stats/the targets are recorded properply in CPVlab.
1. Open a new tab in my browser, paste the Campaign URL into the browser’s url field.
2. Replace the "%KEYWORD%" with the word "Testing". (After the "=" at the end of that campaign url.) Like so:
3. Hit Enter.
You will arrive at one of your LPs, if you have one, or at your offer, if you have direct linking. And — this is the cool thing — the target "Testing" will show up in CPVlap. It provides a sort of confirmation, which is important to me. Since AM (including PPV) is all new to me, I need these affirmations so that I know for sure that all is as smooth and functional as possible, atleast technically. Then I can focus on optimizing and perhaps get more than just an occassional conversion/lead 😉
I’m not sure what you mean by first cutting off the tail? Do you mean submitting the url first without the &keyword=%keyword% at the end? I tried using the "testing" at the end of the url and it did lead to the offer page but nothing showed up within cpv lab that said testing. Should I submit a support ticket or am I doing something wrong?
At first I had the token set to &keyword=keyword, but changed it to &keyword=%keyword% however I unchecked the keyword pass through because I read within the cpv user guide that it is unnecessary to have that checked with the second keyword token.
Thanks a lot for your help Bakaleto.
