A lot of you have asked how to accomplish 2 level tracking, or “SubID” tracking so that you can track which of your visitors perform buy actions or lead actions. Using a standard ShareASale link I will demonstrate how to do this below:
First, taking a standard ShareASale link, and I have replaced all actual ID numbers with 4 XXXXs for the sake of this example.
In order to track on a subID level, all you need to do is add the parameter afftrack to the end of a link. For example, if I wanted to know that this particular link was being used on my homepage, I could code my link as follows:
Note that it is important to include the & symbol, as that is the sign to an Internet Browser that a new parameter is coming, in this case it is the afftrack parameter.
You can enter any information into that field – as long as it keeps the integrity of the HTML link, which means that I do not recommend using any symbols such as the ? or & or using any spaces…as these can interfere with your working link.
