Analytics tracking

Asked by: tdiaz 517 views User Questions

My scenario:

We are a network – we’re taking ads from advertisers and placing them on sites of our clients sites based on the desires of what the advertiser wants.

We would desire to have analytics data from said sites. Is it possible to place, say- an urchin code in the smallest AdvertPro offers is 31×88, and either change the image size to 1 x 1 or just loose the imgsrc part of it, and have this actually serving the urchin code as it’s html content?

AdvertPro may collect this data already for us, but this allows us a standard, consistent method of data collection. That way when we tell our potential advertisers, “we can offer you as much as xxx unique visiters per day/week/month/whatever” when we collectively compile all the urchin data.

    You could create a new 1×1 size if you go to Settings > Basic > Sizes.

    Alternatively you could just create a dynamic media to run the whole Urchin code. It is designed for serving up raw HTML code and doesn’t actually have to visibly display anything.

    Ah, ok- thats a better idea. :)

    I’m still trying to get the hang of the flow with this. After having suffered through the hairpin learning curve of OpenAds.

    Can these then be used by just creating a code by selecting the media? (code wizard) and not be tied to a campaign?

    You can generate code for a single media. Make sure you are in the correct code wizard. By default, you get jumped into the banner code wizard because it’s the most frequently used. You have to select Dynamic Code > HTML in the navigation menu on the left to generate code for dynamic media/campaigns/zones. However, if you’re trying to generate code for a publisher, the interface won’t let you select a media — though you could just add &pid=123 (where 123 is the publisher’s ID#)to the URL in the generated media code to link it to a publisher.

    Is there a way to have different content serve based on browser type?

    This is working except IE6 (and probably 7) is giving an
    error: ‘_gat’ is undefined

    Safari and Firefox don’t seem to care.

    ..and thats not gonna matter, because using the legacy code gives off a different error.

    Appears to be IE only, as Safari shows no error on the Activity page and Firefox shows no error on the error console log.

    Yes, edit your campaign and select Software Targeting from the Change View drop down on the right. You can select which browsers to deliver the campaign to. You could target different content to different groups of browsers by setting up multiple campaigns that way.
