Introduction

Optimise Tracking URLs are broken down into 2 component parts:

Domain – our different networks use different domains so please check this carefully if creating links manually.
QueryString parameters – our tracking requires a minimum of 2 QueryString parameters but there are many optional values available for tracking additional metrics.

Domains

Optimise uses different domains for its different affiliate networks. Please check the table below:

Network Click Domain Tracking Domain Countries

Notes:
Each network also has its own Click Domain – Please note that these “Click Domains” can change. Any existing “Click Domain” will continue to function even if it is changed.
Click domains can be used with HTTP or HTTPS.

This is set by changing the target on the anchor to _blank for a new window or _top to open over the existing window:

<a href="http://track.omguk.com/?AID=XXX&amp;PID=XXX" target="_blank">{Link text goes here}</a>
