Tracking



MkBiz Tracking is a FREE service from Diskette, J. Heisig.

There are many benefits for you by using MkBiz Tracking:

  • You can check the effectiveness of your campaigns
  • You can compare the campaigns to know what action gives you value back
  • You can hide your Affiliate ID
  • You can check the traffic you are creating as Affiliate

How does it work



Normally you use a link sending visitors directly to the Target Page. The link can be pretty complicated. An example:

http://www.targetdomain.com/directory/page.htm?Affi=123&Add=A87

The link shows all the details and makes it easy to remove your Affiliate information (as many surfers are doing) and still come to the target page. And you have no knowledge to the traffic generated

Instead of using a link to send a visitor directly to a page and making it perhaps difficult to type the URL you create a Campaign link. The link is simple:

mkbizon.net/mkbiz?t.1234

What happens if the surfer removes the ?t.1234 information? He will be directed to the index page on mkbizon.net. If he changes the number, he will be sent to quite unrelated page from another campaign, if it exists. If not he will get an error message.

The possibility to track visitors is not the only benefit, you get. You can create 2 or more different advertissements with small (or big) differences and compare their effectiveness. You will get graphical and number comparison, up to the last second.

Campaign Management



From the Main Page of Tracker use Campains button. You get a page like that:

Name:   True Magazine Apr 04 CPC: 125.00 / 4 = 31.250
Target:   /mkbiz/ar.htm
Your link:   "mkbizon.net/mkbiz?t.1"
Name:   Spec Offer Apr 12 CPC: 29.95 / 12 = 2.496
Target:   /mkbiz/affi.htm
Your link:   "mkbizon.net/mkbiz?t.2"

The Name of the campaign points to the Editing Page.

The CPC (Cost per Click) of the campaign is computed using your Campaign Price and the number of clicks received. The currency is not specified, so it can be used in any country, but you should use only one currency.

The Target points to your final destination. Here you can use your Affiliate Information.

Your Link is the URL which you shall use instead of Target to get the benefit of tracking. The complete link can look like:

<a href="#">Your Link Text</a>

or

<a href="#"><img src="Your Link Image></a>

The Insert New Campaign button points to the Editing Page.

The Delete button removes your Campaign and all collected data.

Choose Campaign



  • March 2004

  • True Magazine Apr 04
  • April 2004

  • True Magazine Apr 04
    Spec Offer Apr 12

    You can choose up to 4 checkboxes. If you choose only one, you get results for chosen Campaign and chosen month.

    If you choose several campaigns in the same month, the results will be compared on day by day basis.

    If you choose several campaigns from several months, the earliest one will show the date scala. Number of days will be extended to 31, and the weekdays for other months will not be correct. But anyway it can be great for comparing the results of the same compaign in different months.

    You can see an example in Campaign Results
