Voucher Discovery & Tracking Process
Scrape sites as RSS
First we need to create RSS feeds from live sites. For that, you can use a lot of scraping techniques, but these were the best.
new one: http://feedhub.io/, ali baš liči na inoreader
Inoreader is most advanced. Supports rules (only 1 for free), teams, can filter out similar articles by title, has RSS export, has IFTTT channel, Chrome extension, etc. Also supports Yoke. Simply perfect.
G2Reader has an interesting option to create a RSS feed from starred items. Overall, it is very good and very nice.
The Old Reader is very nice.
Similar, but this time real, at around 30 minutes update interval is CNN’s feed found at this URL: http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss
Importing into site
Using starred vouchers and clicking on an URL’s in Trello.
We will use IFTTT Recipes for that.
Deep Link Generation
Structure of the normal tracking link
The normal tracking link on Affilinet is generated like this:
Saleduck.ch: http://partners.webmasterplan.com/click.asp?ref=723905&site=14636&type=text&tnb=2 Save-up.ch: https://partners.webmasterplan.com/click.asp?ref=662444&site=13039&type=text&tnb=2
ref is our ID (Publisher ID), and
site is Shop ID on affiliate network.
Our ID for site save-up.ch equals 662444, dok je neki drugi ()
Whenever you need an API access key on Affilinet, the Publisher Webservice Password can be retrieved from this menu: Solutions » Web Services » Access data
How to create deeplink?
On a normal tracking link, just append the following parameters (depending on network):
Affili.net (diurl): https://partners.webmasterpla...&diurl=http://www.someurl... Tradedoubler (url): http://clkde.tradedoubler.com/click?...&url=http://www.someurl... Zanox (ULP with double brackets): http://ad.zanox...&ULP=[[http://www.someurl...]]
Original deeplink generators: Zanox
Using SubID to differentiate sites
Affili.net: How does tracking pixel work?
The process of Standard Tracking
Advertisers simply need to insert the relevant tracking code on the confirmation page of your website or online offering. This contains the tracking pixel, which tracks whether a website visitor sees, clicks and buys.
When a customer views the ad.
The user visits the publisher website. As soon as the ad containing the tracking code is displayed, a cookie is dropped in a file on the visitor’s computer. This contains the publisher ID, advertiser ID and the number of the ad, but no personal data. You can monitor and track impressions and see which advertiser ads have been viewed on which publisher websites on the affilinet network.
Please note: You can monitor and track impressions, but not must or should.
When a customer clicks the ad
A customer click is immediately registered on the affilinet platform. The existing cookie is updated with additional information, such as a click time stamp. The user is also immediately redirected to the advertiser website.
When a customer completes purchase or registers
If the visitor then goes completes a purchase on the advertiser website or perform another action (such as registering to receive more information) this is registered on the affilinet interface, which will then determine where the user came from (i.e. which publisher and website) and the time of the click from the tracking cookie on the computer of the user. On completion of the transaction, the advertiser site forwards information to the affilinet interface specifying the level of commission to be paid to the publisher and other parameters, such as the order number and payment model used.
Publisher receives payment
As an advertiser you will need to confirm the successful purchase transaction of the shopper to ensure the relevant publisher’s account is then credited with commission for the transaction.
Advertiser (not us, we are the Publisher) must send an action to affilinet in the confirmation or thank you page of the order system. At least one affilinet tracking pixel / beacon needs to be integrated. With the Advertiser Container the different tracking script solutions are integrated into a universal, scalable tracking script solution, prepared for future enhancements. The Advertiser Container replaces the old tracking implementations via IMG pixel.
Create RSS on web pages
Feed43 is simple, free and working.
Wachete is absolutely the best. Free for up to 10 pages.
FetchRSS is nice, based on CSS selectors, 5 feeds for free.
Ftp2rss can create RSS feed from FTP directory.
Feedity offers no free plan anymore.
Feed Creator is interesting but too simple.
html2rss is simple.
Combine RSS Feeds
Filter RSS Feeds
Importing Vouchers with code
Scraping from other sites:
$url = 'http://frxcvee.com'; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_AUTOREFERER, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 5); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30); $out = curl_exec($ch); $url = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL); curl_close($ch); echo $url;
I tried with SaaS to detect page changes, but that was not reliable or elegant enough.
