BEFORE YOU START

There are a few things required for setting up tracking of Clickadu traffic:

  • An active Voluum account

  • An active Clickadu account

  • An offer, and, optionally, a lander

Once you have everything ready, you can proceed with the rest of this guide.

I. CREATE A TRAFFIC SOURCE IN VOLUUM

  1. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with the Clickadu traffic source template, so you can use it and skip most of the manual setup. In order to use this template, perform the following steps:

    1. Go to the Traffic sources tab.

    2. Click the New traffic source button.

    3. In the New traffic source - templates form, select the Clickadu template from the Other templates section.

    4. Click the Load template button. The New traffic source form will appear.

    5. You can change or adjust any option in the New traffic source form. Once you have done so, click the Save button.

II. CONFIGURE POSTBACK URL

Clickadu's postback URL is used to send information about conversions from Voluum. If you want to have this information in Clickadu, perform the following steps:


In Clickadu, go to the Tracking (1) tab.

Select Voluum (2) in the list of the tracking solutions

Click the Copy (3) button to copy the postback URL to the clipboard.


In Voluum, edit the Clickadu traffic source element.

Enable the Traffic source postback URL (4) toggle.

Paste the postback URL that you have copied from Clickadu in the Traffic source postback URL (5) text field. It should look like this:

http://sconvtrk.com/conversion/bcfa78da6ca18f569d0ce1295d3de8280176c5a7/?visitor_id={externalid}&aid=236486


! NB the value of "aid" may differ from the listed in the examples.

Do not forget to set the parameter for token ${SUBID} in the parameter field.

Click the Save (6) button.

Congratulations, the information about conversions will be passed from Voluum to Clickadu.
