Conversion Tracking through Redirects?
Hi - I'm having some trouble wrapping my mind around this -
I've created redirects for nice, clean links, i.e. ActivelyLoseWeight.com/recommends/AGreatProduct .
BUT - I would like to be able to use that link in a variety of situations - articles, twitter, youtube, PPC etc. (primarily trying to get them to my site, but I like the idea of putting in the direct link as well... don't want to lose impatient people)
How can I add a clickbank ?tid to a link that points to a redirect? Do I have to make a new redirect with a different redirect address for each referring location? I don't want to have ActivelyLoseWeight.com/recommends/AGreatProductYouTubeVid1 etc etc - that defeats the purpose of the redirect imho.
I know the conversion tracking on the vendor pages will work - but only if someone buys, I want to know where people are clicking through from as well.
Thanks to anyone that can clear this up!
