A few days ago I wrote a post about how to use clicky to track Craigslist ADs but I never explained implementation. Below you will see a break down of the code and explanation. A very important side note, THIS EXPLANATION ONLY APPLIES TO THE PAID VERSION OF CLICKY.
Above is an example of Clicky’s tracking code. As you can see, I blurred out my tracking numbers (easily accessible I know, but for confusion purposes, I thought it would be a good idea). Anyway, here is my explanation of the tracking code:
The YELLOW code area is the code for the graphic badge. You may exclude this piece of code if you WISH TO HIDE THE CLICKY ADVERTISEMENT BADGE.
The GREEN and BLUE code make-up the clicky tracking code, you should include both the GREEN and BLUE on any website you are tracking. This code should be placed before the end </body> tag.
If you are using a different domain name (other than craigslist.org) in your clicky settings to track craigslist ad postings, you need to go into your preferences and add the (<insert city>.craigslist.org) domain for your posting in the mirrors section. You can find the correct domain by looking at the web URL of your posting. For instance if you were tracking a post in Minneapolis, MN. You would add “minneapolis.craigslist.org” to the mirror area of your preferences.
If you don’t add your subdomain (ie. minneapolis.craigslist.org) to your mirrors area, Clicky may not gather traffic data.
