Total Control Linking Options

  • You have the option to link to:
    • a specific landing page
    • offer
    • offer
    • group
    • level
    • path
  • Each option to link to a specific object is implemented using a different parameter that will be appended to the previous base page (the page that redirects to the desired page).

Important: All Offer and Landing Page URLs defined in a campaign should have numeric UNIQUE IDs assigned to them. Eg: 1, 2, 3, 102, 203, etc.

1. Linking to a Specific Landing Page

  • In order to link to a specific landing page from the Campaign URL you will use the “clpid” parameter in the Campaign URL, followed by the Landing Page URL for the page you want to link to.
    • For example, you have a campaign with the following details:
LPs ID URL Share
1st landing page 1 http://domain.com/lp1.php 33%
2nd landing page 2 http://domain.com/lp2.php 33%
3rd landing page 3 http://domain.com/lp3.php 34%
  • By default CPV Lab Pro will rotate through these 3 LPs based on the shares.
  • But if you want to always link some visitors to the second landing page, you will use the “clpid” parameter in the Campaign URL for those visitors:
http://domain.com/base.php?c=1&key=...&clpid=2
  • All visitors that come through this link will always land on the second landing page (lp2.php), no matter what the share percentage is set in the campaign.

It is very important to define unique Landing Page IDs inside a campaign.

  • The “clpid” parameter can also be used to link from a Level 1 landing page to a specific Level 2+ landing page, but in this case the parameter will be appended to the base2.php link instead of the Campaign URL.
  • Example:
    • If you have a Landing Page Sequence campaign, then you can use the following link in a level 1 landing page: http://cpvlabpro/base2.php?clpid=21
    • In this example, 21 is the Landing Page ID of a landing page located on the second level

2. Linking to a Specific Offer Page

  • Linking to a specific offer page from the landing page is done using the "cloid" parameter in the base2.php or base3.php link used to get to the offer.
    • For example, you have a campaign with the following details:
Page ID URL Share
1st landing page 1 http://domain.com/lp1.php 50%
2nd landing page 2 http://domain.com/lp2.php 50%
1st offer page 11 http://offer.com/offer1.php 20%
2nd offer page 12 http://offer.com/offer2.php 80%
  • If you want to always link from the **first landing page to the first offer **and from the second landing page to the second offer, then you have to use the “cloid” parameter in the base2.php links from the landing pages, like this:
    • LP1 will have the link as: http://domain.com/base2.php?cloid=11
    • LP2 will have the link as: http://domain.com/base2.php?cloid=12

It is very important to define unique Offer IDs inside the campaign!

3. Linking to a Specific Level

  • You can now, link to a specific level inside a Landing Page Sequence campaign using the “clvl” parameter followed by the level number.
  • In this case CPV Lab Pro will rotate between all landing pages defined in that specific level based on the shares defined for the landing pages.
  • For example, you have a campaign with the following details:
Page ID URL Share
Level 1 LP 1 11 http://domain.com/lp1-1.php 40%
Level 1 LP 2 12 http://domain.com/lp1-2.php 60%
Level 2 LP 21 http://domain.com/lp2.php 100%
Level 3 LP 1 31 http://domain.com/lp3-1.php 50%
Level 3 LP 2 32 http://domain.com/lp3-2.php 50%
1st offer page 91 http://offer.com/offer1.php 50%
2nd offer page 92 http://offer.com/offer2.php 50%
  • Let’s say you want to send visitors that land on the Level 1 LP 2 page directly to Level 3 and skip the Level 2 LP for them.

    • In this case you will modify the base2.php link from Level 1 LP 2 page to:

    http://domain.com/base2.php?clvl=3

  • This means that visitors will be redirected from Level 1 LP 2 page directly to a level 3 LP ( either Level 3 LP 1, either Level 3 LP 2).

It’s very important to keep the page IDs unique inside of a campaign in order to have the redirects working correctly!

4. Linking to a Specific Option Group

  • Use the “cogid” parameter to specify the option group. CPV Lab Pro will rotate between all offers defined in the specific option group based on the shares.
  • For example, if you have the Landing Page Sequence campaign:
Page ID URL Share
1st landing page 1 http://domain.com/lp1.php 50%
2nd landing page 2 http://domain.com/lp2.php 50%
Option Group 1 Offer 1 11 http://offer.com/offer1-1.php 20%
Option Group 1 Offer 2 12 http://offer.com/offer1-2.php 80%
Option Group 2 Offer 1 21 http://offer.com/offer2-1.php 20%
Option Group 2 Offer 2 22 http://offer.com/offer2-2.php 80%
  • If you want to link from the first landing page to an offer from the first option group and to link from the second landing page to an offer from the second option group, then you have to use the following links in your landing pages:
    • In the first landing page: http://domain.com/base3.php?cogid=1
    • In the second landing page: http://domain.com/base3.php?cogid=2

Important: Use the Option Group Index (Number) as a value for the cogid parameter and not the Offer ID that you defined for your offer. It is possible to define more than one offer in a single Option Group, so it is important to use the Option Group Index (Number) in order to be able to split traffic between the offers!

5. Linking to a Specific Path

  • In a Multiple Path campaign you have the option to send visitors to a specific path instead of rotating paths based on share% using the “clpth” parameter appended to the Campaign URL.
  • For example if you want to always send visitors to the second path in a Multiple Paths campaign, then you will use the Campaign URL like: http://cpvlabpro/base.php?c=1&key=...&clpth=2
    • This means that visitors will be always redirected to a landing page defined in the second path for that campaign.

Summary

  • When you want to link to a specific page, offer, level, option group or path simply append the corresponding parameter and the object ID in the previous base link.
Object Parameter Example Value – Replace XX with Supported URL/s
Landing Page clpid &clpid=XX a valid Landing Page ID Campaign URL or base2.php (for Level 2+)
Offer Page cloid &cloid=XX a valid Offer ID base2.php or base3.php
Level clvl &clvl=XX a valid Level index base2.php
Option Group cogid &cogid=XX a valid Option Group index base2.php or base3.php
Path clpth &clpth=XX a valid Path index Campaign URL
