Default help with directCPV

Hi guys,

I just started using directCPV and I have a question regarding tracking the keyword or URL.

I have sent directCPV an email but with no reply, tried calling but it is either busy or no reply so I am seeking help here.

ok, when I set up an ad, there is the section where you insert your landing page link.
I am direct linking, so I am putting my affiliate link.

In this section there are the following options:
$esc.url($query.keyword) - Track the keyword that triggered your ad
${query.trafficProvider.key} - Track the traffic source that carried your ad
$esc.url($query.url) - URL that the visitor was on that triggered your ad to pop.
$esc.url($matched.categoryName) - Category that triggered your ad to pop


So if I want to track the keyword, it should be just adding my link + $esc.url($query.keyword) after it, right?

I have done this, but now the link points at the CPA network main page and not my offer! ( I am using a UK offer and checking it from UK, so it is not a offer/country issue)

Am I doing something wrong?

Your CPA network should provide you with a link as well as instructions on how to pass in a "SubID". You can use that subid to pass information to the network so you can see which subids convert or not.

The reason you are getting an error is likely because you are not using the proper format.
Generally you will need to add &subid=KEYWORDHERE to your link.

In order to do this in DirectCPV you would add &subid=$esc.url($query.keyword) to the end of your link aff link.

DO NOT: Do not send traffic to your link without testing this first. Go to http://blahblahblahyourlink.com/?&subid=test and make sure your subid shows up in your reports.

Btw, it is generally recommended that you have a more sophisticated tracking system in place like Tracking202/Prosper202.

I would not recommend starting without tracking.

Thanks Umdebaba

I am using tracking 202, in fact this is how I found the error to start with.

I got the link from tracking202 with '&subid=' to the end of it then added the keyword variable of DirectCPV

I was getting irregular feedback to tracking202 with no conversions at all after 1500 impression, and the results did not match directCPV onsite results.
so I went and clicked on the link to test it, and it is not sending me to the offer, but to the CPA network.

DirectCPV replied and said that the tutorials they have are for their old interface (so no help here) and that I should contact my CPA network, which I will do, but not very helpful from their end.

Thanks
Maher

Np Maher,

Right now you have your T202 setup incorrectly.
I went through the same thing once.

Stop running traffic asap! If they are hitting the CPA network there is no way you are gonna get a conversion.

Add me on skype if you want. I can spare a few mins to help you out.
