I need some advice regarding tracking of banners / ads. I’m currently working on a website which consists of ALOT of ads from it’s own system. I wanted to track ad stats through piwik, but did not come up with a perfect solution.
What i’ve tried:
Track using customVariables ( e.g. BANNER_ ). Works, but there is a limit of 5 on custom variable. So if I have 15 banners, I would process them in batches of 5. This really leads to bad pageviews within the overall stats of the website.
Track using custom page titles ( e.g. /banner//view ). But same with solution 1, very bad for the overall stats. Every banner is another pageview.
With a lot of ads on a page, it just generates too much pageviews. Worstcase: 5 pageviews per refresh. Yes this site has a lot of ads
Any solution to this available?
