1. Path

Receiving traffic from a campaign URL, tracker distributes it as follows:

  1. Firstly it checks if the click corresponds to any of the rules. If there is a match, then click is sent according to this corresponding rule.
  2. If there is no rule match, then the click is directed to one of the paths according to the traffic distribution proportions between paths.
  3. Tracker defines the landing page where traffic is sent within the selected path, or sends traffic directly to the offer, based on the settings.

Lander + Offer

The simplest configuration of one lander and one offer looks like this:

1. Choosing Lander
To select a lander, click the + New Lander button. The window of lander selection will open. Thanks to grouping and search, you can find the necessary one quickly.

After choosing the lander, it will appear inside the path. To add another lander, click the same button again. You can also select several landers, all of them will be added to the path.
You can create a new lander as well. To do this, click + New lander button. A standard window for a lander creation will open. After saving, the lander will appear on the list of landers, which opens with the + Add Landing button.

2. To send traffic directly without lander, check the Direct linking. You can use it for any path or rule, even when you have several landers.

3. Choosing Offer
To select an offer, click + Add offer. An offer selection window will open.

You can also create a new offer. To do this, click the New offer button. A standard window for offer creation will open. After saving, the offer will appear in the list of offers.You can open it clicking the + Add offer button

A / B testing

Add a few landers and offers to your path.

Traffic will be randomly distributed between the landers according to the weight of every lander. For example, on the screenshot above, the landers have the same weight. It means that the traffic will be distributed equally.

On the screenshot above, the first offer has a weight of 2, and the second one has a weight of 8. It means that the second offer will receive four times as much traffic as the first one.
The numerical value of the weight that you enter is automatically converted to a percentage for your convenience.

To add a path, click the + Add default path button.

The flow editing window will change to the path editing window with the configuration data transferred from the flow. In the Destination section Flow will shift to Path.
