Default How To Track Keywords With TrafficVance?

Does anyone know how to do keyword tracking with TV?

I've tried doing this

PHP Code:
www.domain.com/tracker/a.php?keyword=%%keyword%%&z=0&b=
but it's not working.

you left out the $ in front of keyword

like this:

Code:
www.domain.com/tracker/a.php?keyword=%%$keyword%%&z=0&b=1

It's still not working, when I logged into my tracker, I only see this in the keyword column

%%$keyword%%

This is how my url looks like in TV

PHP Code:
http://www.domain.com/tracker/a.php?campaign=campaign01&keyword=%%$keyword%%&source=tr&z=12&b=8 
Any other ideas?

Anyone here using the bulk upload option and use a different creative for each keyword?

&KEYWORD=%%$KEYWORD%%

This is exactly what I use with my tracker reading in KEYWORD

Perhaps it needs to be all caps for their token. %%$KEYWORD%%

oh, but I have noticed that if you enter it wrong the first time.... that creative may never track. I spent days trying to fix one. Never could.
Start a new creative with the all cap version and it should work.
Since then I macroed the tracking code and everyone has been fine.

Oh.. right. I thought it was weird because some of the clicks were still reported as %%keyword%% and not %%$keyword%%, so it's still not tracking after I made the change.

Ya, I think you are right. I need to change it to caps and can only do it once. Thanks again
