"Ad Tracker (where did they come from?)"

Recommended Posts

Good job! I just figured out the same thing!

 

But I have the "BLANK REPORT" problem too.

It shows the ad in the database, it shows on the customers page, but not when I try to look at the 'Ad Results' report.

I'd imagine that the problem is in the query in stats_ad_reports.php

but I can't grasp it. Any one else solve this problem???

:-j.

 

Have a look at this thread:

May provide some answers?

Can I assume that this contribution simply doesn't work with MS2?

 

I have tried a few times but each time I solve one error eg. missing files, duplicate sessions etc. another error pops up.

 

I'd love to hear from anyone who managed to get it working.

 

Thanks

David

I just installed the latest version of this Contribution and it does not work for me at all. If I go into the Database and manually enter a value for the referrer and advertisement, then the correct values are pulled to the Ad Results page. As of now, though, when a user registers, the Database does not get populated with any info for referrer or advertisement. Any help?!

I just uploaded new version of this contribution. I'm not using customers_referer_url and I suggest you do the same. If you want to see your referring urls, use Supertracker that will give you much better information and breakdown of referrers.

 

Enjoy and I hope that this ad tracking (probably the only available one) tool can be further improved. :thumbsup:

I have installed this great contribution - thanks Mr. Absinth - but it seems to be giving me inaccurate reports.

 

I had one sale, which did not come via a PPC ad and the stats show two orders for a value of ?100. Even if I allow for incompleted sales which have been abandoned during checkout I still cannot come up with two sales that add up to this amount.

 

Any ideas anyone?

 

Thanks,

 

Paul.

Only subtotal is being recorded, ie. excluding shipping thus the difference in amounts.

Not much traffic on this thread... anyway.

 

Would it be interesting to display on the report the referer URL that bring customers without PPC campaign? Like search engines and directories? I have done this on my site and now I can see how much google.com has bring me orders.

Blank pages are usually due to errors on a page with error display turned off.

Find in includes/applicaion_top.php

// Turn off all error reporting
error_reporting(0);

replace with:

error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED);

 

you've chosen a v old package, likely using commands no longer supported.
