PopMyAds as a Traffic Source

PopMyAds is a source of worldwide pop-under traffic. They operate in almost every GEO there is. Before launching a campaign, you have the option to see an estimated traffic volume that you will buy with your bid. With the help of this guide, you will learn how to track this traffic with Voluum.

Before You Start

You will need two things before you are able to launch a campaign in PopMyAds:

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An active advertiser's account in PopMyAds with some funds added (the minimal top-up amount is 25$).

Once you have everything ready, read the remaining part of this guide.

I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

In the first step we describe how to create a campaign in Voluum. Doing so provides you with a campaign URL that you will submit to PopMyAds in step 2 of this guide. In order to create a campaign in Voluum, perform the following steps:

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Creating an Offer Element article to learn how to do that.

  2. (Optionally) Create a lander element. Read the Create a Lander Element article to learn more.

  3. Create a custom traffic source element.

    1. Go to the Traffic sources tab.

    2. Click the New traffic source button.

    5. Scroll down to the Advanced parameters section and provide appropriate TrafficJunky tokens into the Token column.

      Tokens are used to pass various kinds of information between servers. Once a URL is activated, tokens (in PopMyAds referred to as tags) are replaced with concrete values, which are then recorded by a target platform (Voluum in this case). To correctly record this information, Voluum has to know what tokens a traffic source platform (TrafficJunky in this case) uses. The TrafficJunky tokens are as follows:

      • [SPENT]

      • [SITEID]

      • [IP]

      • [USERAGENT]

      • [COUNTRY]

      • [CID}

      • [BID]

      These tokens will be matched with Voluums {var} custom variables.

      Provide a name for the custom variable that will be visible in Voluum reports in the Name column.

      Provide your own parameter names that describe values passed in tokens in the Parameter column. Example names are shown in the image below.

    6. Click the Save button.
