    Please HELP: Tracking question
    We want to test calls to action and see how people are clicking through to a merchant. We attempted to put a Sub ID within the link from each of the different calls to action but when we see the clickthrough on the SAS interface we can not see the link the clicker used. We only see a comma.

    Does anyone know what we are doing wrong or have a suggestion?

    Did you have the link up on a page somewhere or were you typing it into a browser bar? Can you send or post a page that I can go look at the code in order to troubleshoot it.... thanks!

    That first one will work, but it needs to be posted on a webpage in order for us to track the "Banner was clicked from" stat...

    I see the page the banner was on but not an afftrack from the call to action. Will that appear in the Affiliate Sub Tracking if an order is placed from the link with AffTrack=1 in the code?

    Let me state my question more clearly.

    I see the page where the clicker came from but the page as it appears in the interface does not include the afftrack (in this case AFFTRACK=1).

    Will the AFFTRACK=1 appear in the Affilitable Sub Tracking field if an order is placed as a result of that click?

    We really would like to see all CTR's if possible but definitely want to know which call to action results in more sales.

    Thanks in advance for helping.

    Can it be an alpha field or only numeric?

    You can put any code in there you like (I think).

    I use the initials of the site I want to track.

    If I wanted to track you I world put vom at the end of the link and I would know that it came from visitourmall.
