Redirect Links and Tracking
Hello everyone - I have a question that I have researched but have not really found the answer yet and maybe someone can help. It is regarding redirecting affiliate links with tracking code.
Here is my example...
My website is at:
I am an affiliate and have the following content page promoting a product called redwidgets:
In the content, I want to have an affiliate link to:
I have created a redirect directory on my website:
and have installed a php file in the directory as follows
with only the following code in the index.php file:
I want to assign a tracking id to this destination URL in the Ad(s) for this Adgroup.
When a visitor arrives and clicks on the affiliate link redirect, I would like for the tracking id to be included thru to the vendors page and thru the purchase process to the thank you page (where I have google conversion tracking installed).
The vendor also provides tracking id analytics data...but only if the tracking id makes it thru to them.
Help? Maybe it is just a simple modification of the php code... But what if I advertise and sell 10 different red widgets in various sizes, each with a seperate landing page.
