Why and How to Use Affise Checker
Having been in the affiliate marketing industry for a long while and having seen its different aspects, we understand how important it is to monetize and get the highest profit from the affiliate traffic.
And it’s always painful to lose a part of potential revenue to broken links provided by your advertisers. To protect you from any possible traffic losses caused by broken links, we are thrilled to announce the release of Affise Checker.
Affise Checker is a tool developed by Affise to help network managers check advertisers’ redirects and tracking URLs.
Affise Checker covers the most popular demands related to checking the validity of links:
Let’s go through its functionality and learn how it deals with common problems. Affise provides two ways of checking links: manual checking and auto checking.
The first option we offer is to manually check where a particular link leads to. Here, users can see a full redirects path and a final destination.
How does it work?
To check a link manually, you need to insert a full tracking URL to the relevant field. It enables you to manually select a country and OS that you’d like to use for a check, in case an advertiser specifies them.
Right in the same window, you will see the results of the test.
The manual check is especially helpful when setting up a new offer or investigating a problem with a particular link that appeared to be broken.
For advertisers who deal with hundreds and thousands of offers testing every link separately is a deal-breaker. It would turn into a significantly time-consuming process should they need to test all their offers. To save users a lot of time, we offer automatic monitoring of existing offers based on the setting that a user configure.
No complicated integration setup is required. It takes users only several clicks to select advertisers whose offers they want to test, a number of hops, and checks frequency.
The system performs a check of tracking URLs with the selected frequency using targeting options set up in the offers. As а result, the checker concludes whether the links reach Google Play Market or App Store.
And in a while, you will see check results right in your Offers list. You’re also able to filter offers based on the last check result and to perform bulk actions with them if necessary.
This is how investing just several minutes of your time, you can disable all the broken offers and make sure none of your traffic will be wasted without ever reaching an App Store or Google Play.
Also, when you import new offers to Affise through API, you can check the validity of the offers before making them public for publishers.
If you need to take a closer look at particular offers, Affise Checker displays the last 4 check results. If a particular offer experienced problems but then was restored, you will be able to notice that. Also, if necessary, you can see the details for every check.
Aggregated data is available on a separate statistics page. It enables you to figure out the best and the worst advertisers in terms of offers availability and an average number of redirects from a link to reaching a store.
Through the presented widgets, you can see:
Based on this data, you can evaluate each advertiser’s performance and conclude which advertisers to expand your partnership with and which to reconsider or maybe to avoid at all.
Checking links is not an extra thing to do, it is a necessity if you don’t want to lose money. Start checking links regularly to:
Even more capabilities for Affise Checker are on their way. We can’t wait to make them public.
The manual checker is already available for free with a limited number of checks. To get access to the automatic checker and remove the manual checker limit, contact your Customer Success Manager! It is time to stop traffic losses and earn more!
