4. Set Up Clicks in the Clicks-Tab
Check your Integration Setup and Filter Settings directly with the Click Example Tracking URL and in JSON-View with the API Click Tracking URL. The URLs are updated immediately when changing the configurations below.
a) Click Tracking Configuration
Map your click URL parameter to match Clickshield's internal mapping. If no custom domain is specified the 24metrics domain will be used. Type in your individual values.
b) Approved Clicks/ Rejected Click Configuration
Fill in a URL to send approved Clicks to and select the parameters you need. It is also possible to enable/disable passing extra parameters. You can also define how to handle rejected Clicks. You can either enter a Custom Fallback URL to send rejected Clicks to. If there is no Fallback URL specified the fraudster will be redirected to the localhost. Or you can enable RTB monetization.
4. Set Up Conversions in the Conversion Tab
Add Blacklisted Sources or Whitelisted Sources. Blacklisted values are excluded from importing. If you enter a whitelisted value, only this value will be imported.
Edit the Postback URL to track your conversions.
5. Set Up the Connection to your Domain
Choose your Domain Provider and see the values for TXT and CNAME that need to be updated in the settings of your domain to create connection to the Clickshield integration. CNAME(SSL) is optional.
