Use a Redirector similarly to how you use an mbox in your tests.
Redirectors are created with a special Redirector URL that loads a Redirector mbox (Redirector) into your account. Use this Redirector similarly to how you use an mbox in your tests. Submit the Redirector URL to your Ad Network as the ad’s destination link.
Use the Redirector to do the following:
Track clicks from your display ads to your site
Create a single centralized report to track clicks to display ads on multiple ad networks
Vary display ad destinations
For example the same banner lands on your home page, category page and product page.
Find which landing page leads to the most conversions
Before you can use a redirector, you must create it.
Determine the ad’s destination variations, including the default destination.
Create the Redirector URL.
https://<your_testandtarget_clientcode>.tt.omtrdc.net/m2/yourclientcode/ubox /page?mbox=redirectorlink_456 &mboxDefault=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eyourcompany%2Ecom%2Fusualdestination%2Ehtm
yourclientcode is your company’s client code. Your company’s client code is all lower case and has no special characters.
Your client code is available at the top of the Administration > Implementation page of the Target interface.
redirectorlink_456 is the name of the Redirector mbox that appears in your account to use in campaigns and tests.
Redirectors function differently from other mboxes, but appear just as any other mbox in your account. Name the redirector so it is easily distinguished them from the standard type mboxes in your account. As best practice, begin the mbox name with ‘redirectorlink’.
http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eyourcompany%2Ecom%2Fusualdestination%2Ehtm is the default destination.
This must be URL encoded and must be an absolute reference. You can use the HTML URL Encoding Reference to quickly encodes your URLs.
Note that with Redirector you can be exposed to a risk of an Open Redirect Vulnerability. To avoid the unauthorized use of Redirector links by third parties, we recommend you use “authorized hosts” to allowlist the default redirect URL domains. Target uses hosts to allowlist domains to which you want to allow redirects. For more information, see Create Allowlists that specify hosts that are authorized to send mbox calls to Target in Hosts.
Validate the Redirector.
If you will test different destinations for one ad, create Redirect Offers for each version.
Create the campaign.
Complete QA on the campaign.
Create a dummy page with an
<a href> containing the Redirector URL. Example:
<a href=https://<your_clientcode>.tt.omtrdc.net/m2/yourclientcode/ubox/page?mbox= redirectorlink_456&mboxDefault=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eyourcompany%2Ecom%2Fusualdestination%2Ehtm>
Verify that all experiences, default content, and reports act as expected on all browser types, for all of your environments.
mboxDebugdoes not work with Redirectors .
Submit the full Redirector URL to your Display Ad Network as the ad destination.
Information about using a redirector to pas costs per click and revenue per click.
Use a redirector to pass the costs per click.
Best practice is to determine the cost value using the Score per visit engagement metric.
&mboxPageValue=-value to the URL. Note the negative value.
Example: For a .10 cents cost per click:
Use a redirector to pass the revenue per click.
Best practice is to determine the revenue value using the Score per visit engagement metric.
&mboxPageValue=value to the URL.
Example: For a .10 cents revenue per click.
