In case you didn’t know already, Tracking202 Pro is finally out of beta and released to the public. This is the hottest tracking system for search marketers and if you know the reputation of Tracking202/Prosper202, then you should know that this is a quality tracking system.
What is Tracking202 Pro?
Tracking202 Pro is a fully automated tracking system that pulls in data from the 3 major search engines as well as CPA networks to reconcile the revenue and cost data. This means you can see the profitability from each search engine, keyword, text ad, etc without having the manually log the data in yourself!
Sounds interesting, what are some of the features of Tracking202 Pro?
- Full Integration with Google Adwords, Yahoo! Search Marketing, and Microsoft AdCenter
- Full Integration with the Affiliate Networks
- Check out your stats from an iPhone or web-capable mobile phone
- The system updates all of destination URLs and pulls creatives automatically
- Content network and search network can be viewed separately
- Conversion tracking down to the keyword level
- Bidded Vs. Searched Keyword Analysis
- Real Time Spy View
I have Tracking202 already, why should I get Tracking202 Pro?
T202Pro and T202 are completely different tracking systems. This means that Pro is not an “UPGRADE” of the regular version but a different way of monitoring and optimizing campaigns.
If you have been using Tracking202/Prosper202 for awhile, you know the pains of searching for converting keywords in your campaigns and determining the profitability of them. This system completely automates the cost analysis of your ads and keywords without having to go and look for them.
How much does it cost?
Tracking202 Pro is very affordable for the affiliate marketers looking to take it to the next level. Now if you haven’t made your first sale yet, then I would probably stay away from this platform. The pricing is basically a fixed monthly fee based on the number of clicks plus API fees and a fixed $0.004 click charge.
Also, you get a 7-day Trial to check out some of the features of Tracking202 Pro.
Check out the pricing by visiting the Tracking202 Pro page:

“What’s the difference between an advertiser and a publisher?”
This was a question that my brother asked after the trip to ASW. I remembered when I first got started in affiliate marketing with CPA networks, I was kind of confused which one was which. Thinking about it now, I realize that I am both a publisher and advertiser at the same time. It just depends what type of network I’m working with.
Most of the time, CPA Networks are going to refer to affiliate marketers as a publishers. So if you apply to a CPA network like Convert2Media, then you need to apply as a publisher. As an affiliate marketer, you are taking the offers and you are publishing them for visitors. Therefore, to the CPA network, you are a publisher.
However, as an affiliate marketer, you may publish the offer in an Ad Network such as Google Adwords or Adbrite. In this case, you are an advertiser since you are utilizing the impressions and views from a web site. Google Adwords has web site owners (in the content network) that are publishers because they provide ad space for you as the advertiser.
So, to recap, if you’re an affiliate marketer and…
- … you’re applying to a CPA network such as Convert2Media, then you’re a PUBLISHER
- … you’re applying to an ad network such as AdBrite or Adwords then you’re an ADVERTISER.

Studying your competition is a skill you should master if you want to make more money as an affiliate marketer. By understanding your competition, you can create better sites, and better copywriting to outwit your competition.
The immediate benefits are:
- It’s easier to understand the visitor since some else has already done the research.
- Headlines and other web copy has already been tested for sites with months of history.
- Web sites has already been laid out for you, just take the elements from various sources and put it all together for a highly converting site.
Now here’s a tip I use pretty much all the time when I study new niches… I hope this doesn’t bite me in the end… but I study my competitors VERY CLOSELY with compete.com…
Why do I do that? Well if a competitor has been advertising in a niche for awhile, then he’s probably profitable right?
So how do I do that? Well… let’s take a popular clickbank product like Fat Loss 4 Idiots.. I think everyone is familiar with this product right? (A VERY expensive niche by the way, which I don’t recommend for any beginner/newbie)
And I use the product name “Fat Loss 4 Idiots” as the keywords:
Now here’s my little secret… I use Compete.com to determine their history!
In the screenshot above, you can see that FatLoss4IdiotsFlaw.com has been advertising since December 2007! If you are advertising for that long and getting traffic, then he must be getting something back. It would be a waste of time to just continue trying to create more traffic for the site.
Now he might be getting traffic from other sources, but from the screenshots above, you can see that he was advertising in the #2 spot for the product keyword name! I’m guessing to be in that #2 spot, that keyword must be REALLY expensive, but at the same time it MUST be converting into sales!
At that point, I would study all the different landing pages to determine what marketing angles they are using. You can then make it better than the original sites and add your own elements make it your own. Or you can even take the best elements into one awesome landing page site!
