    23 Ways To Use An Ad Tracker


    (Page 1 of 9 )

    The ad tracker was originally developed to provide a record of all hits to a site resulting from ad placements. This article shows a host of different ways to utilize an ad tracker.FOR AFFILIATES

    #1. The Long Url Problem

    Have you ever seen an ad where you are asked to click on an affiliate URL so long that it stretches over 2 lines, like this

    http://www/anysite.com/cgi-bin/dir1/dir2/.cgi?code=123RT&type=102
    35&subid=89715

    Do you think your reader will bother to do the necessary cut and paste to put it in a browser?

    Probably not.

    And that's probably one lost sale.

    And even a one line affiliate link may exceed the permissible length for some ad posting requirements.

    The solution: use a short tracking URL.
    #2. Losing Your Affiliate Code

    As an affiliate you may have your affiliate code embedded in a link something like this:

    http://www.abc.com/123

    Some customers will bypass the affiliate code and just type in the home URL http://www.abc.com (possibly because they think that they will be paying extra for an agent's commission)
