Logs in RedTrack: meaning and types

Logs in RedTrack include all your data about the clicks, conversions, postbacks, and cost updates. Logs contain all the information received from your source of traffic,  affiliate network, raw click data provided by RedTrack (more than 30 data slices).

Section Logs is displayed on the main RedTrack menu and consists of 5 main log slices: Clicks, Conversions, S2S Postbacks, API Postbacks Cost updates:

Important details on processing data collected in the Logs:

  • you can filter the data based on date, click id, campaign, traffic source, offer source, and offer and export all the necessary information in case any filters are applied, as only the filtered data will be exported:

  • the columns include both RedTrack data and the data we receive from the traffic source:

  • the above-mentioned columns can also be customized: you can add/remove new ones and change the order of the columns:

  • we are quite open and allow you to export all the data in a separate file to provide it where needed (for example in case of a click discrepancy you can grab this file and give it to your account manager for checking).

Clicks

The Clicks section is basically a list of all your Campaigns and Offer clicks. There are 2 types of clicks:

  • the Click itself, when a visitor clicks on your campaign tracking link or arrives on your landing page if you use the direct traffic script;
