Internet Marketing Tracking
One of the most important things you need to do when marketing on the Internet is to track your results.
Tracking your links, will show you
Which pages work best giving you optins
Which places work best to produce those optins
Now by the last one I mean the places that produce optins as opposed to the places you like
For example lets use
to illustrate the point.
There are over 1 billion active users on facebook, but its also a very distracting social network, where you can easily waste several hours on non productivity
Now compare that with using a safelist or viral mailer which has thousands of potential prospects, that you can mail to 3 times a week taking only a few minutes to mail your message
Unless you were using tracking, you would not know which of the above 2 worked best and potentially could waste a lot of time using facebook when your focus should have been on the viral mailers which were productive
Tracking also tells you which
Landing or Squeeze Page/s
Work best and again work in similar principle to the tracking links
For example you might get told by the company you are promoting that their top converting landing page works really well, however you prefer another one because it looks better, for many different reasons
You decide to split test them and find that actually the page company X advised was best… Was!
Bearing in Mind that Internet or online marketing is all about building a business and list of your own you can perhaps see why tracking is so important and vital to your Internet Marketing efforts
Using tracking means that you can plan your day, and work for a few hours productively, instead of hit and hope advertising. Yet despite all this you would not believe how many people still don’t use it
Where do you find an Internet Tracker
There are lots of internet trackers available for free, some examples which spring to mind are
The above two are okay as free trackers, but all they do is track where your traffic is coming from
So bearing in mind that you are running an online business and one that you want to be profitable, you need a tracker which is going to do a bit more than just show you where the traffic is coming from
You need to exactly which advertising resource and landing page give you the opt in/s
Until it stopped, I was using and promoting extensively a tracker called vitalviralpro ( sadly it no longer exists.
Two Brilliant Internet Tracking Tools
There are two brilliant internet Tracking Tools you can use
1.The Real Tracker from LeadsLeap

Unique Traffic, people looking at your link more than once
Real Traffic, as in real humans and not bots
Responses, which is the leads you have got.
As you see its pretty detailed as well
The Second way is a little bit more simple than this
Though the results are the same
2. Your WordPress Page or Post
As you will see from the picture below
It details the pages visited by visitors.
Given that Google and other Search Engines, are moving against Trackers
The second method would seem to be more favourable really.
It is easier to build a WordPress post or page with Text
This can then be used where you want it too.
The search engines will look on it more favourably as well.

Whether you’re a blogger, social media maverick, or affiliate marketer, managing your links is challenging.
In the past, your choices for link management have been to either give up all control over your links to a third party link shrinking service, roll out your own PHP script, or use Apache directives to hack together URL redirects.
Using a third party service and rolling out your own URL redirection software both have serious drawbacks. Using a third party can hurt your credibility. There's also no guarantee you’ll always have access to your links. Rolling out your own solution requires technical know-how, is time-consuming and tough to manage, and is difficult to track.
Managing your social links, URL redirects, and affiliate links much easier with Pretty Links. It's a link shortener and manager WordPress plugin, so all you have to do is upload and activate it, and you’ll be able to create links using your website instantly.
