    SID-like tracking
    Is there any option available to track specific products? (like the CJ SID)

    TIA!

    im not sure but i think if you are using a datafeed it would be possible....also you can generate a link to a specific product using the SAS create a link feature and then it should automatically be tracked if i am not mistaken that is....

    On SAS, they use the "afftrack=[whatever]" parameter.

    Thanks! I saw the "afftarck=" on the link, but thought it was like the PID instead of SID.

    Their help files on this subject are excellent - examples, size limit, char limits and more. Once you login, click help in the upper right hand corner - you'll see the 2nd section called Links and it's the first topic under that section (called "Affiliate/SubID Tracking").

    I use this feature at SAS extensively and it works great for me.

    Thanks for that Donuts, I love huge PPC campaings so proper tracking is a must.

    I like to use SKU, KW and Adgroup so 255 charactes is perfect

    The tracking string must be alphanumeric, and can not contain any spaces or special characters.
    Does a dynamic insert of an Adwords keyword work? (as in afftrack={keyword} ) With CJ it appears as keyword1+keyword2 on the reports. Are the "+" considered special characters?

    cj dynamically adds those +s when there's a space. You could always use regular expressions to replace spaces.

    I haven't used it dynamically yet, always use regex's to produce them on page.
