Tradedoubler tracking system “G2”, uses both persistent cookies and session cookies to track the traffic generated within the network. Session cookies are used when users don’t allow persistent cookies. By combining both session and persistent cookies, set by both Tradedoubler and the advertiser, we get very reliable tracking solution.
The user arrives at the Kelkoo website and carries out a search and your product is displayed.
The user clicks on your product and is redirected to the Tradedoubler server where a persistent cookie called “TRADEDOUBLER” is placed on the user’s browser. This cookie contains the TDUID (set in the Tradedoubler database – unique per user) and provides information about the click.
The server also sets the TDUID as a parameter in the redirect URL and sends the user to the advertisers redirect page.
On the redirect page the TDUID from the request URL is picked up and set in a persistent cookie and a session cookie, on the user’s computer. The user is then sent to the destination/product information page.
The page may be called http://www.your-domain/tradedoubler_redirect.html
This page should contain code to pick up the TDUID and set this value in a persistent cookie and in a session cookie.
Code examples can be found here: Relevant code examples.
When the page is ready and stored on your server you should send the URL to your technical contact.
No, the redirect page is only used as an intermediate page in the Tradedoubler tracking process.
Parameters which need to be set:
