Campaign General Settings

Creating a new campaign and editing a created campaign

Updated over a week ago

Campaign is an element in PeerClick that incorporates elements (offers, landers, flows, traffic sources) to create a campaign funnel. Some components are optional and not required for running the campaign.

  1. Choose Redirect if you track through the PeerClick's campaign URL. Within this option you can rotate both, landers and offers, in your campaign.

  2. Choose Direct if you track through direct tracking URL and pixel without an initial redirect. Lander rotation is not supported, but you can still rotate offers in your campaign.

  3. Choose Website Protection if you need to pass moderation with substituting of content that does not pass this moderation for sure.

2. Destination

Select your traffic destination: Path, Flow, URL, My Target. After selecting any of the four destination options, the settings for it will become available on the right side of the screen. Read more about Destination Settings.

7. Hiding the referrer

This setting is used to conceal your landing page from the affiliate network. If you do not use any special scripts to replace the referrer, we recommend selecting the Meta Refresh option.

8. Cost type and Number of cost

Specify the cost model you use to buy traffic in the Cost type section. CPC - cost per click. CPM - cost per mille (thousand clicks). CPA - cost per action. The cost of a click will be assigned after conversion. RevShare - the cost model which is calculated as a percentage of a conversion revenue. Choose the Auto option if the cost can be passed from the traffic source automatically.
Set the cost value and currency in the Number of cost section.

9. Traffic loss, %

While working with a traffic source, a certain percentage of traffic can be lost on the way to the tracker. It may vary significantly depending on the country. With PeerClick you can set the traffic loss percentage for each campaign.
Use the following formula to calculate traffic loss: new cpc = cpc / ( 1 - ( losses / 100 ) )

10. Multi-user

Select a multi-user to give access to your campaign if needed. This setting is available only for accounts without workspaces.

11. Tags

You can add tags to the campaign to make your search more convenient.

1. Unique period

A specified time period in seconds after which a click on your tracking link/pixel is considered unique again.

2. User session

Cookies lifetime period. After the period specified in seconds, postback pixel and click-through from the landing page to the offer stop working. Setting a cookie lifetime to 0 will disable the storage of cookies, the postback pixel or click-throughs from lander to offer will not function.

3. Postback URL

Postback URL lets you pass data on conversions to the traffic source or other services if required.
If you set a postback both in the campaign settings and in the source settings, the tracker will send both postbacks.
