Track Keywords

Before you read this section, please make sure you read the section which explains dynamic campaigns.

This page will generate a tracking link for each one of your keywords so you can identify which keyword from which engine has generated a sale. The best way to go about doing this is to setup a campaign for each group of keywords that you have. For example, you might have a group of keywords related to selling baby toys, you can create a campaign called baby toys and then use this tool to generate a sub campaign tracking link for each keyword. When you pull up your statistic report, each keyword's activity will be listed in this campaign.

    Select a campaign from your list of pay per click campaigns. The subcampaign tracking links will be generated for this campaign
