Step 3 (optional): Setup the Postback URL

  • In order to track conversions into the Taboola platform, you need to setup the Postback URL from Taboola as the Traffic Source Postback URL in the Campaign setup page from CPV Lab Pro.
  • The Postback URL should contain the CPV Lab Pro macro {!tscode!} (for Unique Click ID).
  • The Traffic Source Postback URL will be automatically filled for the selected Traffic Source in the Campaign Setup page, but you need to select/check it order to have it used (check image below).

Taboola Postback URL

  • If the Postback URL is not available (it was not setup or was deleted for this Traffic Source) then you can enter the following Postback URL as Traffic Source Postback URL in the Campaign Setup page from CPV Lab Pro:

https://trc.taboola.com/actions-handler/log/3/s2s-action?click-id={!tscode!}&name=EVENT_NAME&revenue={!revenue!}

Note: EVENT_NAME - Replace with the corresponding Event Name value in Backstage; Revenue is an optional parameter.

As per the documentation from Taboola here the Event name is defined in the Conversions page.

  • In the Campaign Inventory section, paste the Campaign URL from CPV Lab Pro.

Taboola Add Campaign

  • The Campaign URL (provided in the Links & Pixels section from your Campaign Setup page) has all the parameters you selected as Macros for your campaign. So, the information will be tracked in CPV Lab Pro.

Taboola Add Campaign

  • Taboola will check the Campaign URL from CPV Lab Pro and show a preview of the page. You can edit all the information for your Ad in Taboola (image, title, description,etc)

Taboola Add Campaign

  • That's it!

Conclusion: You setup your campaign as usual in CPV Lab Pro and afterwards add the campaign URL as your Campaign ADS URL in Taboola Campaign Inventory section.

This will allow CPV Lab to rotate your offers based on your settings from the tracker, instead of sending the traffic to just a landing page.
