Traffic Nomads Full Integration

The full Voluum and Traffic Nomads integration connects the two platforms in the maximum possible scope. It gives you the option to have full control over your Traffic Nomads campaign in Voluum and make use of Voluum's vast reporting and optimization options at the same time. The following article describes the scope of the integration, the setup, and how to work with integrated campaigns.


The full API integration gives you the following benefits:

  • Synchronize costs for: campaign
  • Check the status of your campaigns
  • Bid on: campaign
  • Pause or restore: campaign
  • Create rules.

Before you perform an integration, make sure that you have the following:

  • An active Voluum account
  • An active Traffic Nomads account
  • A Traffic Nomads API key to authenticate Voluum's request in your traffic source's account. To get the key, contact Traffic Nomads support.

Now you need at least one campaign running and tracked by Voluum. Once you have everything ready, read the further part of this guide.

I. Setting Up Integration
  1. In Voluum, go to the AUTOMIZER module.
  2. Go to the Traffic sources tab.
  3. Click the Add traffic source button.

  4. Click the Add integration link under the Traffic Nomads traffic source.

  5. Provide the API key in the API token text field.
  6. (Optional) Decide if you want to see cost estimations for periods between data synchronization. The estimations are based on the last 24 hours data set. When cost is synchronized, estimated costs will be replaced with actual ones.
  7. (Optional) Decide if you want to have your campaigns automatically matched. If you turn this off, you will have to use Integration Manager to manually match campaigns.
  8. Click the Add integration button.

Voluum Note: With the full API traffic source integrations, the cost information passed via the integration will OVERRIDE any cost value set in a campaign setup in Voluum. Analogically, if you have turned on cost estimations, they will also override cost settings set in a campaign form. Without cost estimations, values passed in a cost token will be used between cost updates. When an update occurs, it will replace values passed in a token.
