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..

Just had a wow moment – revaxarts showed me that you can calculate split earnings on individual items:

\\

I had no idea this existed in the statementer! Awesome!

So anybody working jointly on items can see how much they really earn after any sort of profit share.

Can anyone confirm if Analytics transactions are shown in Acquisition > Campaigns?

I notice an increase in sales of my advertised item, but nothing is showing in the report:

To add to alaja’s questions, 3) Can you integrate the search data with our analytics page? It would be very useful to see what people have searched within in the marketplaces to find my items. I would take the top 5-10 searched words/phrases and use them in my Google Adwords campaign.

Any update on a way to see what Marketplace search terms resulted in an item view or purchase through Analytics?

Awesome! That makes sense. I can see some Adwords data in Analytics now and even which keywords are working, I’ll wait a few more days to see if more data comes through.

Is it at all possible to track ‘Adwords Ad Click’ > ‘My 3rd Party Landing Page/Demo Website’ > ‘CodeCanyon Purchase’ ?

I don’t suppose our Author Analytics code is shown on the page that appears after making a purchase? If it does appear on the “thanks for buying” page maybe we can setup that as some sort of goal? (just guessing here, I don’t really know the best way to do it)

Or is tracking a click from an ad, to my website, then to CodeCanyon not at all possible?

Sorry so many questions!

Cheers, Dave

Oh man, this analytics + adwords integration gets quite involved.

Ping @yomrholmes ! Help !

Are there some step by step instructions to achieve the following:

  • Setup an Analytics Report with a Custom View for only 1 marketplace item (tick! done this – I’m seeing visits and hopefully soon some ecommerce conversions for this single item )
  • Setup a basic Adwords campaign to point traffic to my single CodeCanyon item (tick! done)
  • Setup Adwords conversion tracking – based off data from this single Marketplace Item Analytics report. I think this is right: Adwords > Tools > Conversions:
  • Use the Adwords “Focus on Conversions” feature, so that hopefully it will automagically work out which ads produce conversions that show those more:

Is this the right way? Do I just have to wait a few days for the Analytics data to come across to Adwords?

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

Does anybody have some tips on connecting Adwords with Analytics for our Envato items?

I’m not very proficient in Adwords or Analytics. I have a few landing/demo websites and a few adwords ads. Some ads for marketplace items, some ads for my landing pages. I am trying to combine the Envato Analytics with my own Analytics, then mash that into Adwords Conversions (Tools > Conversions).

I’m really over my head here haha.

Anybody good at this stuff?

Cheers,
Dave
