Better insights for your Choice Page traffic

With more clients adopting Choice Pages for their affiliate links, we are happy to announce the following improvements to reporting:

  • Clicks to each Choice Page ("impressions") can be seen in the summary report for each link: Click the name of your link in the links list and see Choice Page views under Other numbers from this period.
  • Fixed an issue where "Geni.us" was showing as a referrer in the click reports for clicks on buttons in Choice Pages.
  • Improved referrer reporting: Outgoing clicks from Choice Pages will also be associated with the referrer to the Choice Page, so you can see which referrers are driving clicks inside your Choice Page.
  • Fixed issue with "?track=" parameter not being applied to the button (outgoing) clicks.

Pixels & retargeting: Google conversion tag support updated

We've updated our pixeling feature for links to support the latest Google snippet formats.

Better destination names for your traffic reports

Long story short, we've made it easier to see where your traffic is going.

When Geniuslink automatically affiliates your product links they often get converted to a long, ugly URLs with program IDs or unfamiliar domains. For example, an affiliate link to Walmart might point to "redirectingat.com" if you connected Skimlinks to your account for blanket affiliate coverage.

This is fine for your visitors, because those URLs instantly redirect to the retailer website. However, these unfamiliar URLs appeared in our traffic reports as the "destinations", and made it hard to see where your traffic was actually going.

Now, we've improved our reporting to use the URL you submit as the label for each destination. As we support more stores and see more use of Choice Pages, we think this will go a long way toward helping you understand and optimize your affiliate performance. Happy linking!

Save your custom Choice Page settings as new defaults

Now you can save these settings once and have them automatically applied whenever you build a new Choice Page. Just click the new "Save…" option the next time you edit or create a Choice Page!

Choice Page links now open in a new tab

Due to popular demand, we've updated Choice Pages so that product links open in new tabs. This appears to follow convention for most product-oriented web pages with "buy" buttons, such as Google Shopping and PriceGrabber. We apprached this decision with some caution and would love to hear if you have any feedback, either way.

Dashboard incompatibility with ad blocking services fixed

We've fixed an issue that caused ad blockers to prevent dashboard charts from loading.
