Hey Stewart,

Just a quick note here: can you confirm that after initial signup and email verification the buyer is taken back to the item they were original viewing (and not the home page).

Cheerio!
Dave

I just refreshed 26 times my dashboard to know my position on CodeCanyon (101st bytheway :) )

Check out the top author listing here: http://codecanyon.net/author/top_authors :)

There may be existing similar items on the marketplace?

Best of luck with the project.

Hey guys! Do you drive the traffic directly to TF or to your landing pages? Does TF policy allow to refer the visitors from google adwords to TF? Thanks for the answer.

I have two campaigns: One goes directly to the marketplace (with ?ref= and utm_* parameters ) and another campaign goes to a landing page before the marketplace.

actually I just had a look at the UTM builder page: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en

it says source, medium and name are all required. so maybe that is why they are not showing in the report correctly.

In your links from adw you tag them with all utm_* attributes? Is it enough to have just utm_campaign or utm_source, utm_medium are required too?

I added utm_source and utm_medium as well because I wanted to to see which different ads and adgroups were performing better than others. I can also check to see if the “clicks” on each individual adwords ad match the “visits” on the individual campaign item.

It should work with just utm_campaign, but I haven’t tested it. Maybe try adding it and see?

This breaks my brain :)

haha!

Well, I think it works here. But I haven’t seen any real clicks yet, just my two test clicks.

All ucm_* parameters are prefixed with a “B” so I can tell which ones have “Bounced” through to the marketplace.

Here’s my two WordPress analytic test clicks:

My my two Marketplace analytics test clicks that went through:

If you’re not seeing anything in your marketplace analytics maybe try the prefix thing?

Hopefully I see some real clicks this week. I still haven’t recorded a real Marketplace conversion from Adwords yet :(

Here’s my (rushed @ 11pm) javascript code to capture utm* parameters on WordPress and pass them through to CodeCanyon:

(if you have better code please share!)

<script type="text/javascript">
function GA_Get_Cookie(e){var t=document.cookie.split(";");var n="";var r="";var i="";var s=false;var o="";for(o=0;o<t.length;o++){n=t[o].split("=");r=n[0].replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,"");if(r==e){s=true;if(n.length>1){i=unescape(n[1].replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,""))}return i;break}n=null;r=""}if(!s){return null}}function GA_Set_Cookie(e,t,n,r,i,s){var o=new Date;o.setTime(o.getTime());if(n){n=n*1e3*60*60*24}var u=new Date(o.getTime()+n);document.cookie=e+"="+escape(t)+(n?";expires="+u.toGMTString():"")+(r?";path="+r:"")+(i?";domain="+i:"")+(s?";secure":"")}
var ga_get_params=function(e){var t=function(e,n){var r=n[0];var i=r.split("=");var s=decodeURIComponent(i[0]);var o=decodeURIComponent(i.slice(1).join("="));if(typeof e[s]==="undefined"){e[s]=o}else{e[s]=[].concat(e[s],o)}return n.length==1?e:t(e,n.slice(1))};return e.length==0?{}:t({},e.substr(1).split("&"))}
    var params = ga_get_params(location.search);
    if(typeof JSON != 'undefined' && typeof JSON.stringify != 'undefined'){
        if(params && typeof params.utm_source != 'undefined'){
            GA_Set_Cookie('dtbaker_utm',JSON.stringify(params));
        }
        var c = JSON.parse(GA_Get_Cookie('dtbaker_utm'));
        if(c && typeof c.utm_source != 'undefined'){
            var extra_params = "";
            var capture_params = ['utm_source','utm_medium','utm_campaign','utm_content'];
            for(var i in capture_params){
                if(capture_params.hasOwnProperty(i)){
                    if(typeof c[capture_params[i]] != 'undefined'){
                        extra_params += capture_params[i] + '=B' + c[capture_params[i]].replace(/[\W\s]+/g,"") + '&';
                    }
                }
            }
            // add this to any codecanyon links on the current page.
            jQuery('a[href^="http://codecanyon.net"]').each(function(){
                var h = jQuery(this).attr('href');
                h += (h.match(/\?/) ? '&' : '?') + extra_params;
                jQuery(this).attr('href',h);
            });
        }
    }
</script>

I think I’ve nailed it – lol – this is nasty.

I’m trying to capture conversions from AdWords > My WordPress Website > CodeCanyon > Sale.

Since My WordPress Website and CodeCanyon share different analytics codes this doesn’t really seem to capture the flow automatically.

So, when someone lands on My WordPress Website with utm_* url parameters I now store these in a cookie. Then using javascript I modify all the “codecanyon.net” links on the website to include the same utm_* parameters.

This way I can track campaign links from AdWords to My WordPress Website, and then I can see how many of those campaign clicks make it through to CodeCanyon for a sale. By viewing the two different analytics reports.

There is probably a much better way to do this, like sharing the same analytics code between my wordpress website and envato profile, but that seems a bit scary..
