Campaigns doesn't work

(AS-N) #1


I have tried to track campaigns, but it does not show me any results.

My links are like this:

http:// - Seite nicht gefunden

I use the 0.4.5 version, is there any bug, or are there other things to check?

During your campaign tracking testing, take this in consideration:

  • Are your pages tagged correctly?

Yes, I can see the piwik tracking code just before the tag.

  • Are you using a redirect on your landing page?

There is no redirect.

  • Piwik only records 1 referer by visit, which means that only the first referer used to access the website will be recorded.

But piwik records nothing. I have tried with different IPs and I have tested it with real campaigns and real (different) customers which came to my website. I can see the customers in piwik, but not in the campaigns section.

IIRC, the campaign parameters have to be in the referer url. Maybe we should also allow the campaign parameters to be in the landing page url?

Oh, so I have tested it in a wrong way. I always tried it with the landing page, so piwik is right.
But it would be a good idea to allow also to use it with the landing page.
Thanks, I will try it again.

sorry, same problem again.


Just tested from Froogle with this link, but no result in the campaign section :frowning:

I think you have to change the first ampersand to a question mark, otherwise those query parameters are considered part of the query path (PATH_INFO).

Maybe this is the problem? All slashs after “product_info.php” are no slashs they are question marks and ampersands.
This is a osCommerce shop and I use search engine optimized links.
So there are also other tags in this URL, not only piwik tags.
