Follow this short and simple guide and set-up your traffic source in minutes. There is an existing post that covers the dynamic tracking tokens/scripts/macros for Exoclick right HERE. This guide will skip the account creation process and assume you already have a Voluum and Exoclick account.

Step#1 Learn your traffic source, what is Exoclick?

Step#2 Login to Voluum at www.voluum.com

 

Step#3

 

–          Click the “Traffic sources ”tab and then on the “New traffic source” button”

 

Step#4 How to fill out the optional and necessary fields

After you have completed “Step#3” a new window will appear with many fields to fill out. Basically only the ‘Name’ field is necessary and all the others are filled as you get the info from your traffic source. In the screenshot below I will show you how this set-up should look like. Be advised, valuables and links used in this guide are taken from Exoclick’s official web page and the tokens and postback URL can change depending on your campaign. For example you can only insert 1 or 2 tokens because your campaign doesn’t need more. When you create your campaign on Exoclick you will be provided with a valid Postback URL for that campaign. You can edit those changes at any time.

Note#1 Every value in this guide is taken from Exoclick’s official website. If you encounter any issues at all feel free to contact either Voluum or Exoclick to get a solution for your problem.

Note#2 Since these values are taken directly from their site they are only examples on how should your set-up look like, these values will be provided to you from Exoclick after you start making campaigns with them.

  • Thanks for a great guide Attila!

    I have followed it and configured ExoClick as a traffic source. HOWEVER, when you use Voluumes ExoClick-template it says: “ExoClick does not support server to server conversion tracking.”. So I suspect that the conversion tracking will not work or? Any ideas on how to get around this problem in that case?

      Hmm, that’s strange – did you email exoclick and ask them directly? I’d be curious to hear what they had to say.
