Append Analytics for Advertising Cloud Macros to Flashtalking Ad Tags

Advertisers with an Advertising Cloud-Adobe Analytics Integration Only

Applicable to Advertising Cloud DSP only

If you use ad tags from Flashtalking for your Advertising Cloud DSP ads, append Analytics for Advertising Cloud parameters to your landing page URLs. The parameters record s_kwcid and ef_id query string parameters in the landing page URL, allowing Advertising Cloud to send click data for the ads to Adobe Analytics.

Use macros for Flashtalking display and video ads for the following types of Analytics for Advertising Cloud implementations:

  • Advertisers with the Adobe Analytics for Advertising Cloud JavaScript code implemented on their websites: The JavaScript code already records the s_kwcid and ef_id query string parameters. However, using macros extends tracking to include click-based conversions when third-party cookies aren’t supported. The best practice is to add the macros in the following sections to your ad tags to capture additional click-through data that isn’t captured through the JavaScript code.
NOTE

The JavaScript code is a solution for click tracking only while cookies are still available. Once cookies are discontinued, implementing the following macros will be necessary.

  • Advertisers whose websites don’t use the Analytics for Advertising Cloud JavaScript code and instead rely on Analytics server-side forwarding for click-through data only (without any view-through data): The following macros are required to report onsite click activity driven from ads you buy through Advertising Cloud.

Display Ad Tags

Within the Flashtalking ad tag settings, append the following macro to the end of the click-through URL in the Clicktag field:

?[ftqs:[AdobeAMO]]

Example: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop?[ftqs:[AdobeAMO]]
