Tracking Pixels Basics:
Tracking pixels play a crucial role in advertisers' ability to record how viewers interact with ads. There are two main types of tracking pixels: Impression and Click.
Most tracking pixels are passed along as URLs, such as https://a2.adform.net/adfserve/?bn=44054688;1x1inv=1;srctype=3;ord=[timestamp]
To add an impression tracking pixel to an ad item, follow these steps:
- Go to the Snippet page of your advertiser. This is where you can manage and create new creatives for your ads. You can access the Snippet page by logging in to your ad:personam account and navigating to the advertiser for which you want to add the impression tracking pixel.
- Click on “Add new creative” to create a new creative for your ad item.
- Find and click on “Additional Information” to expand the section. This is where you can add the impression tracking pixel link to your ad item.
- Paste the impression tracking pixel link into the “Third-party impression Pixel” field. This is where you add the link for the pixel that tracks impressions for your ad item.
- Click on “Upload” to finalize the changes. This will save the creative with the impression tracking pixel and make it available for use in your advertising campaign.
Please note that ad:personam only allows you to add impression tracking pixels to individual creatives. The pixel is usually a 1 pixel by 1 pixel image hosted on a server and is placed on a page using an HTML img tag, which loads the pixel whenever someone visits the page.
