Step 8 - Tracking Link


This step is required. You must generate a tracking link. This tracking link is the link you'll use to place as your destination URL in your traffic sources.

Simply select the option you're promoting whether that's direct linking or simple LP, advanced LP, or smart redirector (from Step 6). Then proceed to select all the appropriate options. Please the final generated link into your traffic source. Please do not enter your direct landing page URL as this would cause issues. ## Options For any optional step you skipped, you don't have to select an option for those. For example if you skipped step 5, there would be nothing to select under Text Ads. ## Cloaking As mentioned before we are looking to phase out this option but it shows up here again as a way to override the previous setting in case you chose yes and wanted cloaking on during the setup.
