Default Laser URL Questions

I've been using Laser URL to generate my URLs because I like that you can target it by country and it has a lot of nice sorting abilities.

Is anyone else using this program? I noticed that it has export options for most of the major networks. My question is that when I choose to export should I choose the subdomain, domain, tld, document & path?

Thanks!

I came across this question today as well. Should we just be targeting the TLD, or is it better to target a very specific page on each domain?

Depends on the offer and the domain. All I can say is test.

As an example you wouldn't want to target both Amazon.com and amazon.com/canon-cameras.html if you were doing a Camera offer.

But for something more specific like, getcheapcamerashere.com, go ahead and bid on all the variations.

If you bid on a TLD like amazon.com, for example, does that mean that if someone goes to amazon.com/cameras.html or any other page on amazon.com that your ad would show up? Or is it just when someone goes directly to amazon.com?

I've tried to get an answer from the networks about this with no replies yet.

That would depend on how you target the URL. In MT they have options for how you want your URL target to trigger.

Complete URL
Enter your target without any precision match syntax if you want to trigger a destination view when your target is found anywhere in the Internet address visited by a user. Ex: Your target could be matched anywhere in this address 'wwwdomain.com/page.html?query_argument=data'
URL Without Query String
Enter your target within quotes to signify that you want your target to be matched only in the bold part of this example Internet address 'wwwdomain.com/page.html?query_argument=data'
Query String Only
Enter your target within brackets to signify that you want your target to be matched only in the bold part of this example Internet address 'wwwdomain.com/page.html?query_argument=data'
Search Engine
Enter your target within asterisksto signify that you want your target to be matched only to search engine queries. Ex:
'www.searchengine.com/results.html?search_query=search string'

Right, complete url means any piece of it to my understanding.
