How to make your RedTrack work for you: step-by-step quide

Step 1. Adding a Traffic Source

Traffic Sources in RedTrack

 

Source is the traffic origin from which advertisement is bought.

When you create a source in RedTrack, you can specify subs - special parameters that help transfer specific data for analysis. For example, you can add an {{age}} sub that transfers the clicker’s age value to subID. Some of the other common subs specify GEO, location, device and cell phone provider. 

Subs can vary depending on which traffic source you are using.

 

We recommend you to make the most out of your subs. With this setting you will be able to analyze among which target groups the offer is most popular and disconnect other groups from this offer, maximizing your profit with minimal investments.

 

In RedTrack, you can use a pre-set catalog of Sources or add your own Traffic Sources. 

 

 

Pre-set Traffic Source

 

 

To add a new Source from a pre-set, go to the Sources tab and click New button. Choose a necessary Source from the Catalog and click Add. The information about the Source will be filled in automatically. In case the Postback URL or some of the subs are missing, you can add them manually.

Please mind that some of the Sources include the parameters that should be modified at the moment of their inclusion based on specific campaign (e.g. goal for Exoclick or ap_key for Go2Mobi).

Custom Traffic Source

 

 

If the necessary Source is missing from the list, you can add it manually. To do that, click the Add new button. Fill in the Source's details: Name, Postback URL and the list of available sub-ids.Save the changes. This information can be obtained from your Traffic Source website or their support team.

Feel free to contact us if you want a specific source to be added as pre-set. We will try to help you by writing a step-by-step integration manual.

From the Sources list you can either edit or delete selected Source. You can also Export the list of your Traffic sources.

 

 

Configuring S2S Postback URL

 

 

If you want to postback your conversions to your Traffic Source automatically, you will need to setup Postback URL in Campaign section. We always recommend using the postback URL option as opposed to the img or script pixel option as it's safer and far more accurate.

The Postback URL needs to be obtained from your Traffic Source and needs to contain RedTrack clickID macro {ref_id}.

If you're using a pre-set Traffic Source,  Postback URL will be auto-populated from a template when you click the Add button.

4.png

For Postback links for custom Traffic Sources, please contact your account manager or take a look at Help files and insert the Postback URL manually. 

 

 

Configuring Tracking Pixel

 

 

If your Source only supports the Pixel Postback method, you can add the script into the corresponding field of the Campaign setup/creation window:

5.png

 Please do not paste the entire script, just the URL part.

 

 

Statistics

 

 

You can sort your Traffic Sources by date and campaign. Statistics allow you to track the performance of each source.

6.png

  • Campaigns - the amount of Campaigns from each Traffic Source
  • Impressions -  the number of impressions that came from each Traffic Source
  • Clicks - the number of clicks generated by each particular Source
  • Conversions - the number of conversions that occured for each Traffic Source
  • CR - the number of conversions that occured for each Source
  • CPA - cost per action (acquisition) - a fee for a certain action (form submission, registration, download, etc.
  • EPC - earning per click - the amount received for a click bought from a traffic source. EPC can be calculated as Revenue divided by Clicks
  • CPC - cost per click - net cost of a click bought within a traffic source. Calculated as Cost divided by Clicks
  • Revenue - the amount received for the payment of conversions within all Campaigns from each particular Traffic Source. Revenue can be found by multiplying campaign’s conversions and payout
  • Cost - the cost of all clicks from each particular Source
  • Profit - net income of all Campaigns from each Traffic Source. Profit is a difference between the campaign’s Revenue and campaign’s Cost
  • ROI - return of investment - profitability level of all clicks from a Traffic Source. ROI can be calculated by the following pattern: Profit/Cost *100%

 

Cost models

 

 

Upon creating a Campaign, you are able to choose the cost model used by your Traffic Source to enable the most accurate tracking.

Currently, RedTrack supports the following cost models:

  • CPC - cost per click - net cost of a click bought within a traffic source. Calculated as Cost divided by Clicks.
  • CPA - cost per action (acquisition) - a fee for a certain action (form submission, registration, download, etc).
  • CPM - Cost per thousand
  • RevShare - revenue share - a set % of commission fee paid upon conversion.

For Offer Payout value to be tracked correctly, make sure that RevShare value in Postback isn't set to "0".

Personal website traffic

 

 

If you wish to track your own website's performance, add it as Traffic Source and the products you're promoting as Offers. 

 

Please complete these steps to receive performance report in RedTrack:

  1. Open the Traffic Sources tab and add your own website as a traffic source.
  2. Add the offers you’re promoting in the Offers tab. You may also add Landers.
  3. Create New Campaign with your web-site as a traffic source and the offers you promote listed as Offers.

 

If you wish to run A/B test on your offers, it can be done right from the Campaign creation tab. You can also do the same with Landing pages or combination of Offers and Landing pages.

Upon creating a Campaign you will receive a tracking link called Campaign URL. Place it on you web-site directly or through built-in redirector. Now, you will get the data on all the clicks in the Campaign report.

You can create several Campaigns / tracking URL is you want to track different placements across your web-properties.

 

 

Organic traffic

 

 

Being a feature-rich tracking solution, RedTrack allows you to track organic traffic alongside the paid traffic. 

This means that, even if there was no initial redirect, such traffic is still recognized by our system and can be monitored as part of a Campaign report. 

Now, let us present several ways to execute organic traffic tracking within the RedTrack interface:

 

Option 1: Organic Traffic Campaign

 

 

This solution is perfect for those who uses several traffic sources for each Lander. Organic traffic stands out in this scenario and you may want a separate Campaign to keep track of your statistics. 

 

Here's how you set up an Organic Tracking Campaign:

Since you do not know what source your visitors may come from, your own website serves as the Traffic Source.

  1. Open the Traffic Sources tab and add your own website as a traffic source.
  2. Add the offers you’re promoting in the Offers tab. You may also add Landers.
  3. Create New Campaign with your web-site as a traffic source and the offers you promote listed as Offers.
  4. Click Save and copy the LP Pixel associated with this Campaign. 
  5. Paste the LP Pixel on your website.

With this setup, your Organic traffic statistics will be accumulated within a specific Campaign. 

 

 

Option 2: Tracking Organic Traffic as Part of a Regular Campaign

 

 

If you're using a limited number of Traffic sources, it might be convenient to track Organic traffic within an existing Campaign. 

In order to make it happen, complete the following steps:

  1. Open Campaign creation/edit window.
  2. Copy LP Pixel that is populated upon saving a Campaign.
  3. Edit the LP Pixel so that one of the subid parameters is appointed to track organic traffic. eg. <img src="http://rdtrck2.com/5af182632c822c0001186242?sub1=[campaign]&sub2=[zone]&sub3=[udid]&sub4=[advertiser]&sub5=[organic]&sub6=[ban]&sub7=[country]&sub8=[packcpm]&sub9=[org]&ref_id=[clickid]?format=img" height="1" width="1" />
  4. Insert the LP Pixel on your website.
  5. Open Campaigns tab, select your Campaign from the list and click Report. Group your statistics by subid (in our example, choose sub5). 

 

This way you will see full report on your organic traffic.

Step 2. Adding Affiliate Network

 

 

Affiliate Networks in RedTrack

 

 

An Affiliate Network acts as an intermediary between publishers and merchant affiliate programs. It allows website publishers to more easily find and participate in affiliate programs which are suitable for their website (and thus generate income from those programs), and allows websites offering affiliate programs to reach a larger audience by promoting their affiliate programs to all of the publishers participating in the affiliate network

 

 

Pre-set Affiliate Network

 

 

In RedTrack, there is a catalog of preset Affiliate Networks.

To add an Affiliate Network from the the catalog, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Networks tab
  2. Click the New button
  3. Choose the necessary Network from the list and press Add
  4. The information about the network will be populated, including Offer and Postback URL templates.

9.jpg

 

NOTE! Postback template need to be modified accordingly if you are using a custom domain. rdtrck2.com shoud be changed to your domain.

 

 

Custom Affiliate Network

 

 

If your preferred Network is missing from the catalog, you can manually add your own Network, too.

In case you need to create a new Affiliate Network, simply click Add New. Fill in all the details about the Network and save the changes.

 

If there are any Networks you'd like to see featured, just email us at support@redtrack.io

 

 

Postback URL for Affiliate Network

 

 

If you want to track your conversions automatically you will need to setup Postback URL on your Affiliate Networks. We always recommend using the postback URL option as opposed to the img or script pixel option as it's safer and far more accurate.

Upon adding a new Affiliate Network you'll find postback URL section that consists of two lines: Postback URL template and Final Postback URL.

 

Common Postback URL template looks as follows:

http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid={replace_me}&sum={replace_or_remove}

10.png

Make sure to add actual clickID parameters to the Postback URL. The necessary macro needs to be be obtained from your Affiliate Network as they may vary for each particular Network.

For pre-set Networks correct macros are already filled in.

Once you've generated postback URL, you can add it to your affiliate network either as global Postback, or on individual offer level if you plan to use different macros for different offers.

NOTE! Postback template need to be modified accordingly if you are using a custom domain. rdtrck2.com shoud be changed to your domain.

 

 

Duplicate Postback

 

You can choose what action should be taken upon receiving duplicate Postback (several conversions created by the same clickID). Depending on the option you've chosen, RedTrack will:

 

  • Create a new conversion: duplicate postback data will be added as a separate conversion
  • Ignore duplicate Postback: no data will be added to your tracking report
  • Edit conversion with new data: the original conversion will be edited with new data
  • Keep original data, increment payout: only conversion payout will be edited (for example, tracking subsequent sales for the same conversion)

duplicate_postback.png

 

Whitelisted IPs

 

 

if you wish to only record conversions that came from a certain IP, or IP range, you can enable Whitelisted IPS. The conversions that aren't included in the IP range will not be accounted towards your events limit.

whitelisted_ip.png

 

Additional tracking parameters

 

 

If your Affiliate Network supports additional tracking parameters, you can add them in the SUBID fields:

 

2.png

 

Upon adding subID parameters, your Postback URL will be edited automatically and appear in the Final Postback URL section:

 

1.png

Be careful with SUBIDs as many Networks do not support them at all.

 

 

Managing Affiliate Networks

 

 

To manage your Affiliate Networks navigate the Networks tab. There you will see the list of all networks that you have already added. You can either edit or delete the networks from the list. Also, you can export the data and see statistics based on a time period using the time filter. 

 

List_of_AN.png

 

 

 

Network Statistics

 

 

 

You can sort your Affiliate Networks by date and campaign. Statistics allow you to track the performance of each Network. 

You can sort your Affiliate Networks by date and campaign. Statistics allow you to track the performance of each Network. 

 

network.png

The following information can be tracked for each Affiliate Network:

  • Offers - the amount of Offers from each Network
  • Clicks - the number of clicks generated for each particular Network
  • Conversions - the number of conversions that occured for each Network
  • CR - conversion rate - the percentage of clicks that resulted in a conversion
  • CPA - cost per action (acquisition) - a fee for a certain action (form submission, registration, download, etc.
  • EPC - earning per click - the amount received for a click bought from a traffic source. EPC can be calculated as Revenue divided by Clicks
  • CPC - cost per click - net cost of a click bought within a traffic source. Calculated as Cost divided by Clicks
  • Revenue - the amount received for the payment of conversions within all Campaigns from each particular Network. Revenue can be found by multiplying campaign’s conversions and payout
  • Cost - the cost of all clicks on Offers from each particular Network
  • Profit - net income of all Offers from each Network. Profit is a difference between the campaign’s Revenue and campaign’s Cost
  • ROI - return of investment - profitability level of all Offers from a Network. ROI can be calculated by the following pattern: Profit/Cost *100%. If the ROI > 0%, that means that Offers are profitable.

Step 3. Adding Offer

 

 

Offers in RedTrack

 

 

Now that you added and configured your Affiliate Networks, you can obtain specific Offers provided by those Networks. 

Offer is a description of a product or a service that needs to be advertised as well as all the aspects of the advertising process (payments, sources, etc.). Without Offers, you cannot properly track and monitor conversions.

The tracking process requires setting up Postback URL to receive {clickid} parameter and transfer the required conversion data when a lead is converted and you receive payment for a specified acquisition (eg. purchase, registration, sign up etc.)

 

 

Adding New Offers

 

 

The steps below describe the process of creating a new Offer. Before creating a new Offer, please make sure to add a relevant Affiliate Network that you took this Offer from:

1. Open the Offers tab and click New

2. Enter the name of the Offer

3. From the Affiliate network drop-down list, select a Network to associate the Offer with

The network will appear on the drop-down list only if you have previously added it in Networks tab

4. Specify Offer Payout, if necessary

5. Set an Unique visits cap (optional). This feature affects how many times the same Offer will be displayed to the same user. 

6. Specify Conversion cap (optional). You may choose to get notified per e-mail when the conversion cap is reached. 

Tip: make sure to add several Offers when setting a daily cap so that RedTrack has an alternative Offer to send traffic to when the cap is reached. It can be done in Campaign section. 

7. The Tracking and Postback URLs will be filled-in automatically with the data from the template. You will only need to add a valid Offer URL to the tracking URL.

Conversion tracking will only be possible if you modify the offer URL and manually add clickID macros to the link. For RedTrack, the correct clickID parameter will be {clickid}

 

Example of the modified offer link:

http://www.mb102.com/lnk.asp?o=9643&c=918271&a=286398&l=9216&s2={clickid}

 

8. In the Country field select the countries from where traffic is accepted for this offer.

Please note that Geo is for reference only and not used for traffic filtering or distribution. All Traffic filtering and distribution settings are done in the Campaign tab.

As soon as you have completed the form, save the changes.

Tracking Offer Payout 

 

 

In RedTrack, there are 2 different ways you can track payout for conversions: Dynamic and Static.

  1. Dynamic. This method offers you an effective and accurate method of tracking using a dynamic payout token or fixed value in your S2S postback URL or Tracking pixel.

    Here’s how to set payout tracking to Auto: 

  • If your Affiliate Network supports a dynamic payout token, it will send it back to RedTrack via your postack URL / pixel for each registered conversion via our supported sum parameter.
  • Upon adding a Network, edit the Postback URL template with the payout tracking macro. It will vary for each particular Network, so please contact your account manager for the right parameter. 

 

postback_url.png

 

Here are some examples of postback URLs with dynamic tokens:

AFFISE PB URL example:

http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid={sub1}&sum={sum}

HasOffers PB URL example:

http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid={aff_sub}&sum={payout}

CAKE PB URL example:

http://rdtrck2.com/postback?clickid=#s2#&sum=#price#

 

  1. Static. This provides you with an alternative solution if dynamic payout macros aren't supported by the Network. You can also record payout by using a fixed payout value in the Offer settings; to set it up, do the following:

  • When creating or editing an Offer, navigate the Payout tab

  • Set the unit payout value (in USD) per each registered conversion

 

 

 

Managing Offers

 

 

 

All your offers are displayed on the list by default. From there you can check the statistics for each offer, e.g. number of clicks, Conversions, ROI, etc. You can use the fields in the Filter panel to adjust the items you want to view. You can filter the offers by Network, Time period, custom Tags as well as by Status (Active, Archived or Deleted).

 

 

Changing Offer status  

 

 

The following statuses are available: edit, delete or archive the Offers

 

campaig_status.png

 

By applying the status filter, you may change the visibility of Offers based on their current status:

campaign_status.png

 

 

 

Exporting Offers

 

 

Upon clicking the Export button, you will be able to download a .CSV report file with Network/Offer performance statistics.

networks__.jpg

 

 

A/B Testing of Offers

 

 

To get your Campaigns up and running, you need to select Landing page (if applicable) and Offer in Streams section of a Campaign.

Sophisticated affiliate marketers can leverage this feature to provide more granular testing and optimization of their Offers.

  1. You can add more than one Landing page to the Stream. Traffic will be distributed between landing pages according to the specified "weight".
  2. You can add more than one Offer to the Stream. Traffic from landing page to Offer will be distributed according to specified "weight".
  3. You can add more then one Stream when creating / editing Campaign. Clicks will be distributed between streams according to specified "weight".

 

In each campaign Stream you can add several offers or Landings to run split tests, that can depend on weight you set to selected Offer.

 

Streams.png

 

 

Offers from own Website

 

 

If you own Offers that are being promoted on your website, their performance can also be tracked with the help of RedTrack.

 

In order to do that, you need to create a Campaign and get a tracking URL. When you get some clicks - you can access instant reports:

 

1. Add your own website as Traffic Source.

2. Add the Offers you’re promoting as Offers.

3. Create new Campaign with your web-site as a Traffic source and Offers that you want to be tracked.

You can also do the same with Landing pages or combination of Offers and Landing pages.

Upon creating a campaign you will receive a tracking url. Place it on you web-site directly or through build in redirector. Now, you will get the data on all the clicks in the Campaign report.

 

You can create several Campaigns / tracking URL is you want to track different placements across your web-properties.

 

 

Multiple Offers from the same LP

 

 

If you wish to use a Landing page that contains links to multiple Offers with separate button each, make sure that you add different tracking links for each Offer accordingly. 

 
Use this link structure if you want to link multiple offers simultaneously. Please make sure that number of offers in Campaign Stream is equal to a number of Multi-offer click URLs in Landing page.
 
Offer Link Template:

http://your_tracking_domain.com/click/1

Step 4. Adding Landings (optional)

 

 

Adding Landing Page

 

 

Once you have your landing page ready and uploaded to your hosting service, you can add it to Redtrack. Navigate the Landings tab, click New and fill in the New landing form.

Besides, you can copy the LP Protect code that allows you to prevent unwanted entries to your Landings.

 

 

Landing Page tracking tokens (macros)

 

If you wish to receive extended reports about your Landing Pages performance, you can add tracking macros to your Lander's URL.

 

The list of supported tokens is available upon adding a new URL from the Landers tab:

Landing Page Code example

 

 

It makes no difference which part of the page source code you will add your scripts to. Normally, users prefer to add them to the document body.

Here's an example of a Landing Page that includes tracking scripts. If you wish to inspect this test page further, you may access it here: http://nativus.io/rdtk/lpurl.html 

 

lp_scripts.png

 

 

 

Landing Page click tracking URL

 

 

The http://rdtrck2.com/click  (or http://your_domain.com/click if you are using custom tracking domain) link is called your click tracking link.

 

You can use this single URL for all your landing pages. Redtrack will know where to redirect a user by reading a cookie that was set during the initial redirect to a landing page. In the rare case when a user disabled cookies, Redtrack also passes the same information from the campaign URL to lander URL and reads it from the referrer during the click redirect.

 

Make sure your landing page has this script: 

<script type="text/javascript" src="//%your_Redtrack_dedicated_domain%/track.js"></script>

 

Default tracking domain is http://rdtrck2.com/

 

 

 

Multi-offer click tracking URL

 

 

If you wish to use a Landing page that contains links to multiple Offers with separate button each, make sure that you add different tracking links for each Offer accordingly. 

 
Use this link structure if you want to link multiple offers simultaneously.
Please make sure that number of offers in Campaign Stream is equal to a number of Multi-offer click URLs in Landing page.
 
Offer Link Template:

http://your_tracking_domain.com/click/1

  

 

 

Direct traffic to Landing Page

 

 

If you want to track direct traffic to your Landing Page please add the following script to it:


<img src="//%your_tracking_link%?format=img" height="1" width="1" />

 

 

LP Views

 

 

If you wish to track Landing Page views separately, add the following script to your Landings:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//your.trackingdomain.com/track.js"></script>

The statistics will appear in your Campaign report. The dedicated column is named "LP Views"

 

3.jpg

 

 

LP Protect

 

 

Upon adding a Landing Page, you have the ability to copy a script that protects Landings from direct entry. Please keep in mind that your Landing should have .php extension. Here's an example of the LP Protect script:

 

<?php $key="5a742266e1ee4213c33dbd32";if(isset($_GET["lpkey"])){ list($hash, $hashTime)=explode('.',$_GET[ "lpkey"]);$genHash=md5($key.$hashTime.$_SERVER[ "HTTP_USER_AGENT"].$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]).".".$hashTime;if($genHash!==$_GET["lpkey"] || time()>$hashTime){ exit(0);}}else{exit(0);}?>

 

 

Editing Landings from Campaign section

 

 

If you wish to make changes to your landings, it can be done directly from Campaign section. Click the pencil edit button next to your Landing and you will be directed to the Edit landing page.

Shopify Landing Pages

 

 

If you are using the "Add To Cart" button for your Shopify store, here's how to track the orders with RedTrack:
 
Make sure that landing pages receiving traffic through redtrack.io have additional parameter
added:
 
For example:
 
https://www.yourshopurl.com/pages/ironed-clothes-2mins-ppt-ob?campaignid={campaignid}
&sourceid={sourceid}&tracker=redtrack
 
Then add following JS to this landing page
Parameter that we it will look for in the URL is highlighted pink
Your tracking domain is highlighted green
Your “add to shopping cart” button class is highlighted blue
 
 
script.png

 

----Script start
 
<script type="text/javascript">
function getParameterByName(name, url) {
if (!url)
url = window.location.href;
name = name.replace(/[\[\]]/g, "\\$&");
var regex = new RegExp("[?&]" + name + "(=([^&#]*)|&|#|$)"),
results = regex.exec(url);
if (!results)
return null;
if (!results[2])
return '';
return decodeURIComponent(results[2].replace(/\+/g, " "));
}
window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
if (getParameterByName("redtrack", document.location.href) != null) {
var btns = document.querySelectorAll('.amazon-aff');
for (var i = 0; i < btns.length; i++) {
btns[i].href = "http://t.yourshopurl.com/click";
}
}
}
});
</script>

Step 5. Creating a Campaign

 

 

Campaign works as the combination of an offer and a traffic source you have set up during previous steps.

The system generates an individual link for the campaign that then needs to be transferred to your traffic source.

Within each campaign, you can add one or several landings and offers, filter them, distribute traffic according to various GEO parameters, providers, etc as well as set up the system to send you notifications on selected conditions. Each campaign has additional postbacks to use when conversion data should be sent somewhere else.

You are able to set a daily cap for each specific offer. If you add several offers, the traffic will be distributed based on specified "weight" of each offer. You can choose to get notified vie e-mail when a daily cap is reached.

333.jpg

 

To launch a Campaign follow the next steps:

 

1. Navigate the Campaigns tab and click the New button. Fill in the Campaign's details:

 

campaigns_int.jpg

 

2. Enter the Campaign name.

3. Select a Traffic Source associated with this campaign.

4. Specify the Cost per click amount and currency

5. Define the Streams for the Campaign:

   a) Select an Offer to associate with this Campaign Stream

   b) Select a Lander for the Campaign (optional).

   c) Define the stream Weight and apply Filters if necessary. To select multiple filters, click down the arrow in the Filters field and enable the filters you want to use.

   d) If you want to add more streams to the campaign, click the Add button. 

6. In Postback section, click Add and the link will be filled-in automatically if you're using a pre-set traffic source.

However, some traffic sources require you to edit the Postback with specific parameters for each specific campaign (eg. goal for Exoclick or ap_key for Go2Mobi).

If the field remained blank, you need to manually define postback conditions. The Postback link can be obtained from your traffic source. Make sure to to add {ref_id} tag to your Postback link. Specify additional subs if needed. 

 

Example of a Postback link:

http://main.exoclick.com/tag.php?goal=REPLACE&tag={ref_id}

 

postback.jpg

7. Your Campaign URL will be available directly from the Campaign creation form after you click Save to complete Campaign creation. Copy and pass it to your Traffic Source.

Example on how to obtain a custom domain URL

 

 

Now, let's figure out how to obtain a custom domain URL from an internet domain registrar. In this example, we will be using GoDaddy.

In order to add a custom domain to RedTrack, you will need to point your domain CNAME record to the following domain: rdtrck2.com.

 

1. Open your registrar website and select your domain. You will need to configure DNS settings. You will see a list of available records. Click ADD to create a new entry.

 

 

2.jpg

 

2. Select CNAME as the Record type and click SAVE

Screen_Shot_2018-02-21_at_10.50.53.png

 

 

3. Fill in the required information as follows:

Type: CNAME

Host: track

Points to: rdtrck2.com 

Click Save

 

Screen_Shot_2018-02-21_at_10.51.45.png

 

 

The main domain will be used to generate your campaign and click URLs. After you complete the set up, it will appear on your list of DNS records:
