    PPC Tracking
    This has probably been answered before, but I have looked all over and haven't found a solution. If you can either help point me in the right direction or help me with a solution that would be good.

    Basically, I have a site that I send click's to from both Google Adwords, and Yahoo Search marketing (and a few other sources). I'm wondering how I can setup my site so that I can track in avantlink if it came from a ppc ad (and if it was from adwords or Yahoo) when I get a sale.

    Thanks.

    Logan,

    Thanks for your post. For packaged campaigns (like banner and text ads), there is a field right in the ad configuration where you can add your own custom tracking code.

    Also, you can append a "&ctc=" parameter to most any of the URLs generated by our tools. The value that you specify for that parameter will be tracking in any resulting click-throughs or sales (and shown in our reporting tools).

    Let me know if that answers your question. And Happy Holidays,

    Gary M

    I'll also add..

    For building links to accommodate your PPC ads I would suggest using the Custom Link Builder tools.

    There it is. Easier than I thought. I will just set a cookie on my site as pass that value to my link depending on my variable "&ctc=". Easier than I thought. Thanks Gary. I'm still loving AvantLink. It's great.
