Step 5. Implementing S2S Postback in Peerclick

Step 1. Adding Taboola as a Traffic Source in Peerclick

To add Taboola in Peerclick open the Sources tab and click New. Load Taboola from the template and press Add. Available tracking macros will be automatically added to the Source.

Step 2. Starting a Campaign in Peerclick

Now that we have our Traffic Source in place, it is time to set up a new Campaign. In Peerclick, go to the Campaigns tab and click New. Submit all the relevant details, such as your desired Campaign Name, Landing Page and the offer(s) associated with this campaign. Choose Taboola as Traffic Source and click Save.

Your Campaign link will be generated automatically. You may remove the macros you don't wish to use for this Campaign. Copy the link to clipboard.

Step 3. Launching a Campaign in Taboola

In your Taboola account, go to the Campaign Management page and click +New Campaign.

When creating a new Campaign or editing an existing Campaign, you can add URL parameters at the bottom of the New Campaign/Edit Campaign page, in the Tracking Code section. URL parameters can be added at the campaign level. This means the URL parameters added will apply to every item in that specific campaign.

We recommend to skip this part and use Peerclick for generating your Campaign Tracking code, as all macros will be populated automatically and you won't need to insert them manually.

On the Campaign Inventory page, add Campaign URL that you have copied in Step 2 into Destination URL field.

Specific URL parameters cannot be added at both the individual URL level AND campaign level. For example, you cannot have "utm_source=cpc" added at the campaign level and "sub1=Taboola" appended to a URL in the campaign. This will cause the data to be incorrect.

Step 4. Creating S2S Postback in Taboola

In order to implement your Postback URL, do the following:

  1. Go to the Campaign Management page.
  2. In the Campaign page, go to the Tracking section at the bottom of the page.
  3. Create your Postback URL for tracking conversions. The postback URL is used to send conversion information back to Taboola, so you can track the number of conversions in Backstage. The postback URL format is: https://trc.taboola.com/actions-handler/log/3/s2s-action?click-id=CLICK_ID&partner-name=PARTNER_NAME
  • CLICK_ID – Replace CLICK_ID with the {external_id} URL parameter for Peerclick. This is a dynamic field.

  • PARTNER_NAME – Replace PARTNER_NAME with your Taboola account ID. Your account ID is a 7-digit number that can be found in the URL when you log in to your Backstage account. For example, if you login and see https://backstage.taboola.com/backstage/1234567/, 1234567 is your account ID

In our example, your final Postback URL would look like this:

https://trc.taboola.com/actions-handler/log/3/s2s-action?click-id={external_id}&partner-name=1234567

Step 5. Implementing S2S Postback in Peerclick

Return to your Peerclick account and open Taboola at sources. The modified Campaign URL from taboola needs to be inserted in the Postback field and mark the checkbox Enable postback . Dont forget to save that all.
