Firstly I have a question about cost data for PPV at the keyword level, whats the best way to get this accurate? I understand that you can go and change your cost ‘estimate’ (even then only over a date range and have to do it daily?!? murrrrr) in Update but not at a keyword/url level? Is this not possible in prosper because I would have thought that accurately tracking your cost vs revenue is kinda the most important thing when trying to make a profit lol let alone switching off potentially profitable keywords too early/late (you might be paying 0.015 for some kw’s and .903 for others at an average of say 0.04 for the campaign, but having 0.04 will throw cost/ROI waaaaay out % wise for a lot of KW’s!)without having to go back and forward from the ad network to prosper to compare everything manually? Am I correct on this and if so does CPVlab have this problem or can it accurately track your costs without manually changing things?
Secondly not a big issue but in most of my campaigns my keyword tracking shows up with the variable in front of it ie. (leadimpact) %keyword%blah.com and on a couple without (the way I want it) ie blah.com. Why is this?
Prosper can’t update exact costs out of the box , but here is a mod I’ve created to fix this :
Any mods to track at keyword level.. ))))))))))))))))))
What do you exactly mean? Doesn’t P202 track at keyword level?
not sure what i’m doing wrong with the install but i’m not getting anything else show up under "Update"? the config/update folders/.DS_Store file in the downloaded tracking202 folder go in the tracking202 folder in prosper202 right? I changed the stm-data.php and made the uploads/reports folders writable but nothing is showing up in the "Update" tab. I retried step by step 3x but i’ve stuffed something up somewhere???
You sure you uploaded all the files?
Looks like you didn’t overwrite P202 files since the menu is not showing.
pretty sure ha there is only the 2 folders(_config & update) and 1 file right(.DS_Store)?
