Tracking ad campaigns and sub-campaigns
You can create your own custom ad campaigns and track them via our affiliate system. To create a campaign, you decide on a keyword that best describes your campaign and specify that keyword and append it to your affiliate URL by including it with the variable “campaign”. For example: Your ad campaign keyword is “Christmas”, then your affiliate URL would be: http://secure.lunarpages.com/tracking/cgi-bin/clickthru.cgi?id=example &campaign=Christmas In addition to being able to track the campaign, you can also track your sub-campaign if you have one. Let’s say that your ad campaign keyword is “Christmas” and you are running a sub-campaign campaign in Google. So your sub-campaign reference word can be “Google”. To track this sub-campaign, you will have to modify your affiliate URL as shown: http://secure.lunarpages.com/tracking/cgi-bin/clickthru.cgi?id=example &campaign=Christmas&reference=Google Please note that you must name the campaign and the reference keywords as “one word only” and no spaces are allowed.

Tracking your top referrers
Clicking on the “Top 100 Referrers” button in the navigation bar will display a page that lists the Top 100 referring URL’s along with a count of the raw and unique click each URL received. A screenshot is provided.
