Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
anyone have any good solutions as to how to track visitors from links without putting a tracking URL on them. we want to keep the URL clean to benefit from anchor text, etc
we track ppc listings using our own cookie-based system. i suppose i could set a cookie based on HTTP_REFERER, but that is such an non-exact variable.
is there another way?
p.s. we have excellent log analysis, but the sales are made offsite, so a cookie is the only way to track through to sale confirmation.
