I am hoping someone can help me out with a little problem I am having.
I have somebody who wants me to apply tracking to his craigslist ad. He is constantly getting flagged by his competition, despite having a completely legit ad.
Now, of course, tracking the traffic you get to your site from the ad is easy. But when I include any sort of tracking IN my ad, one of two things happens.
1) It brings me to a page telling me my ad cannot be posted due to the tracking not being allowed
2) It posts the ad, acting like it went through, but the tracking code is instantly taken out.
Does anyone have any idea what I can do to track who clicks on the ad? Craigslist seems to remove or block anything I can think of. I have tried multiple tracking sites' code, shortened URLs for images with tracking attached, and everything else I could think of. If anyone can help me out, that would be AMAZING! I know it can be done, but I have hit a wall. Thanks!
To be more specific, Is there any tracking service out there that will track the hits for a particular image whenever it is loaded? I need to have access to the IP Address of the hits as well. Again, Thanks!
(I posted this in the general section also, so I hope it is okay to post here too. Not sure where the best advice would be, so forgive me if this is "overposting" or anything.)
