What are the tracking options?

There are a few options to track the traffic flow. Please choose the one that suits you best.

1. Standard UTM tagging.

2. JS Pixel.

This option only works when you have the access to the offer's page source code and you can implement the java-code into it.

Currently all our pixels work only with the visitor's cookies, so using the post-back url's (https pixels) is technically impossible for the time being.

The pixel will not activate if the visitor's cookies were overwritten during their way to the needed “thank you” page. As a solution we always ask to place our pixel on all landings (from the start page through the “thank you” page)

We have two types of such pixels:

  • <!-- MarketGid Sensor --> <script type="text/javascript"> (function() { var d = document, w = window; w.MgSensorData = {cid:106744, lng:"us", nosafari:true}; var n = d.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]; var s = d.createElement("script"); s.type = "text/javascript"; s.async = true; var dt = !Date.now?new Date().valueOf():Date.now(); s.src = "//a.mgid.com/mgsensor.js?d=" + dt; n.parentNode.insertBefore(s, n); })(); </script> <!-- /MarketGid Sensor -->
  • <img style="display:none;" src="//a.mgid.com/1x1.gif?id=106744&type=c&g=x&t=x&tg=&v=1&r=">

They should be placed in the source-code of the targeted pages.

We also need to register the URL of the targeted page in our system to activate the tracking.

In this case you will see all the stats in your dashboard.


3. Postback, S2S.

If you don't have access to the offer's page source code, you can use a third-party tracking system to control your sales/leads/conversions/subscriptions/registrations.

We need to pass the parameter c={click_id} in the tracking link. We use it to optimize the campaign's performance (increase/decrease the traffic from several sources) and you should apply that data on your side.

You can set a specific event in your system and pass the required data depending on the actions performed by the visitor. If the event is a "lead", we need to pass the following data to the URL http://a.mgid.com/postback:

c={click_id} + e=lead (event name) + r=amount of revenue (if possible).
