Subid Help!

Discussion in 'PHP' started by DylanM, Sep 20, 2009.

    I'm trying to set up subid keyword tracking. Here is what I have done so far, but it does not seem to be working..

    I pasted this in my php file in between my head tags:

    <?php
    //grabs the subid and sets $OVKEY equal to it.
    if(isset($_GET[’OVKEY’]))
    {
    $cid = $_GET[’OVKEY’];
    }
    ?>

    <?php
    //grabs the subid and sets $cid equal to it.
    if(isset($_GET[’cid’]))
    {
    $cid = $_GET[’cid’];
    }
    ?>

    And then I altered my links on my CPA network as such:

    http://cpanetwork.com/xxxxx?sub=<?php echo $OVKEY; ?>"

    And lastly I went into Adwords Editor and changed my destination URL for each keyword as follows:


    http://mylandingpage.com/index.php?cid={001}
    http://mylandingpage.com/index.php?cid={002}
    http://mylandingpage.com/index.php?cid={003}
    etc.
    etc.


    001, 002, 003, etc are obviously relevant to my own keywords.

    Now when I log into my cpa network all that it shows in the Subid Report is:
    < No Subid >

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    In the first part I think you made a mistake :
    $cid = $_GET[’OVKEY’];

    You meant
    $OVKEY = $_GET[’OVKEY’];

    No?

    In fact I believe what you need is simply:

    <?php
    //grabs the cid and sets $OVKEY equal to it.
    if(isset($_GET[’cid’]))
    {
    $OVKEY = $_GET[’cid’];
    }
    ?>
    in order to grab the cid from the adword link and then in your page, you alter your CPA links like this:
    http://cpanetwork.com/xxxxx?sub=<?php echo $OVKEY; ?>

    That's the id
