Yes, Split testing is a guaranteed way to increase the conversion rate of your website. In a split test, you divide the traffic equally amongst two versions of your salesletter to see which version produces the most sales.

Imagine if you are making $1000/week, and you change your headline and double your conversion rate. Your traffic stays the same, the amount of work you put into your business stays the same, but somehow, you are now making $2000/week!

It’s almost like free money. And the only way you can discover these things is by testing every little thing.

With Adtrackz, the process is extremely simple. Check your stats in the exclusive section dedicated to split tests and you’ll see one campaign’s conversion rate and R.O.I stacked up against the other, you’ll know right away which salesletter is pulling.

If you perform split tests regularly, there is no limit to how many more sales you can pull from your existing traffic, without doing any extra work.

Yes, if you don’t want to show your tracking url to your visitors you can use the Link Cloaking function.

With Ad Trackz Gold , you can:

Turn This:

http://yourdomain.com/installfolder/go.php?c=clickhere

Into This:

http://yourdomain.com/yourfolder/clickhere.html or http://www.yourdomain.com/yourfolder

When you advertise your affiliate program with your naked affiliate ID you are at risk of losing your commissions. People sometimes strip the ID off the end of the url, either to buy directly from the owner, or to replace your code with their own so they can order from themselves and get a commission!

Some specialized scripts were created to protect your affiliate links and they cost as much as $59! Well save your cash because with Ad Trackz Gold’s not only do you get built in link protection, but you get double the protection those other solutions can promise you.

The problem is, even if you hide your url behind a simple html redirection, or even, an encrypted redirection, some affiliate programs STILL show your ID on the landing page. But not so with Ad Trackz Gold, your affiliate ID is completely hidden from the visitor.

Here’s how it works:

When a visitor clicks on the cloaked url that Ad Trackz Gold generates, they are redirected behind the scenes, using special technology to your affiliate link. The affiliate link sets the cookie, tagging your visitor with your id, then adtrackz sends your visitor directly to the main affiliate website.

There’s no chance for the visitor to strip your code because they will never see it.

People have reported doubling their affiliate sales simply by using a cloaker.

Unlimited Domain license means that you can install the Script and WP Plugin on as many of your own domains as you want. There are no restrictions. If you want to install it on your customer or client sites you need to buy a new license key.

Yes, you can track your Affiliate Sales by using the Pixel Image tracking link. Ad Trackz Gold will automatically detect the purchase details like amount of price, order id and other details.

Yes, we use Clickbank for payment processing and you can use a Credit Card or Paypal.

You can also use a subdomain like tracking.yourdomain.com or sub.yourdomain.com. It’s not required to use a domain if you don’t want to move your site to our servers.

No, a domain name is not included. You have to point your own domain to our servers. But you can also use a subdomain like tracking.yourdomain.com instead of a domain.

Basically there is no difference. Both are stand-alone versions with the exact same features. If you run a single WordPress Blog we would recommend the WP Plugin. If you run multiple sites it’s highly recommended to use the Script Version.

Yes, you can use the Script and/or WP Plugin on client sites but you need a unique license for it.

Before you test the conversion tracking yourself make sure that you cleared your cookies. Please also check if you added the conversion tracking code in the body of your page.

We are sorry to see you go. Please submit a ticket to the Helpdesk along with your most recent payment receipt and your domain name and we’ll cancel your account.
