Click Tracking with Mediaplex Tags

Asked by: redbob 1633 views Third Party Ads

I’ve altered the Mediaplex tags per instructions in the manual and the ad shows up fine but when clicked it says:

Error Information
The request could not be completed because the requested resource could not be found.

If I remove %%CLICKTAG%% and %%CLICKLINK%% it works fine.

Here is the TAG format I have entered

    If you use %%CLICKLINK%% instead of %%CLICKTAG%% does that make any difference? Try also using %%CLICKTAG2%% if that doesn’t work. It is sometimes necessary to do this if an advertiser is serving the ads with their own server into the Mediaplex server and they have different requirements for how click tracking URLs should be encoded.

    Excellent Mike, thanks. %%CLICKTAG2%% worked just fine.

    Just to follow up on third party tags. I also have an Atlas contract and found that the instructions in the manual didn’t work.

    In the manual it says change this line to:

    I too have an advertiser who is using Mediaplex, and they are claiming that they are not able to get impressions delivered yet they are getting clicks delivered.

    Some additional (possibly important) info. This advertiser is displaying in an e-mail zone. AdvertPro is reporting deliveries and clicks.

    Lastly, all I was able to include in the media creation screens was the IMG SRC code, which generated a %%RANDOM%% tag for cachbusting.

    Did we set something up wrong on our end?
    Does Mediaplex not work with e-mail zones?
    Is something wrong on the advertisers end?

    So … I shouldn’t have used the creative that they sent us, which I loaded into AdvertPro locally. I should have used the portion of their tag to invoke the image?

    Yes, by hosting the creative locally you made it so their server cannot track impressions. You should use the URL from the in their code for the Image URL. That URL will make a request to their server every time the ad is served so they can track impressions and serve the image.
