Commission Junction SID Tracking

Hey all

i have a question regarding the CJ sid tracking
i have a landing page that promotes 5 products that are similar to each other 5 different affiliate links

i want to track the convertion rate of all these affiliate links as what keywords they are converting for etc

how can i dynamicly track the sids

how does this work for example can i do something like this to my link
link from my ppc campagn goes to my landing page with parameters in the url for example ?www.mylandingpage.com?campaign=ppc1&keyword=mykeword
then use the $keyword = $_GET['keyword']; etc in my page php code to add these parmaters to each of my affiliate links therefore so when they click the affiliate link will take the user to
affiliatesite.com/affill3453?sid=campaign+ppc1&keyword+mykeyword (the sid of this link will be dynamic with my varibles)

if so how will i then get data to see my keywords conversion clicks etc ? where will i view this information ? i know it wont show in my ppc account

can some one please explain as i am very confused

need to start tracking my convertions ASAP

Hi,

You might also want to look into using something like the PrettyLink plugin for Wordpress or similar as you can setup your custom links with tracking, plus it also serves to clean them up for better clickthrough ratios.
