Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I'm an affiliate trying to track sales of a Clickbank product. I have my own landing page, but when the user makes a purchase they get sent to the merchant's confirmation page, so I can't use this confirmation page to track sales.
What then is the best way to track sales if I don't have direct access to the confirmation page?
I could track clicks on the "Buy Now" links on my landing page, but this still isn't very accurate - what I really want to know is exactly what ads are converting to sales so I can optimize my PPC campaigns.
Thanks for your help :),
If so, you could strip out the search engine query on your landing page (see post #5 below) and add it to your clickbank URL as a tracking entity.
1) If you do enough business with the merchant contact them and see if they will add something to the landing page.
2) Open Multi CB accounts. Since they are free and you can set minimum payment to $10.00 this isn't a TERRIBLE alternative, but Clickbank does charge you $2.50 everytime they write a check, so if you had 5 clickbank accounts earning a total of $100 in a pay period, you would get $90 after the check fees instead of $97.50 if you only had one account.
Thanks for your help :)
