How to track keywords if I use landing page?

If I use LP, how can I change TID= in link on my LP change to keyword that people search & click my ad on Google search?

my keywords: key1, key3 key3

If someone search with key1 on google & click my ad.
Then on my LP, link should be "http://---hoplink----?TID=key1"

and some question
If I use redirect for my link
How can I track keyword on redirect link?

Thanks :(

I'm assuming that LP means landing page.

What you have to do is make your landing page a .php page and then pass the keyword to your page and then from your page to your tracking id.

ie. You must have a php page set up that takes a url like:{keyword}

and then makes your tracking id in your links:[keyword]

Nick, can you give us the code for doing this?

Hey, are landing pages really important? Why don't we just send them straight to our site? What's the difference?

We wrote a big article on this in one of the earlier Affilorama update PDFs. Can't quite remember which month, but it's in the "your questions answered" section. Your question is pretty common.

Using a landing page is good if you use pay-per-click advertising because it gives a better chance that your ad will show up, plus it lowers down your cost per click. :P

try this for tracking down to keyword level and apparently not just for PPC landing pages they have a hosted and a self hosted solution, just come across it its free.
