Conversion tracking allows you or your advertisers to track the effectiveness of a campaign, by logging the actions visitors have made after clicking an ad. Examples include signing up for an account, purchasing a product or downloading a file.
This article explains how you can track conversions via your ad server.Conversion tracking can be enabled via the Conversions tab on the Campaigns page. See here below.
Server-to-server Conversion Tracking
Server-to-server tracking works by implementing a postback script at your (advertiser's) back-end. This script would ping AdGlare's endpoint with a unique identifier when a conversion has been made. Based on that identifier, the visitor and his click can be traced back and the conversion logged. If enabled, all Landing URLs of that campaign will get a key/value pair appended:
When a conversion has been made, re-fetch the agcid variable from your database, and
call the endpoint like in the following example:
By default, a single unique agcid can be recorded only once. If the same agcid is send more than once,
the endpoint will still response with "OK", but the second conversion is simply not logged.
This behavior can be overriden via the Deduplication Policy when setting up the tracker.
Customizing the agcid variable name
The standard variable name "agcid" (AdGlare Conversion ID) can be renamed. You can do so when setting up the Tracker.
AdGlare can calculate the Return On Ad Spend based on the total conversion value and the campaign spend.
Calculating this metric is especially useful in case you're an advertiser.
On the page Campaigns arrow_forward Conversions, enable 'Calculate ROAS' and enter the campaign spend (i.e. costs).
Then, upon conversion, tell us the value of that conversion by appending the key/value pair &conv_value=***
to your Endpoint URL. Use a dot (.) to separate decimals. Example for a $100.50 conversion:
