Richads pop allows you to show your offers as pop ads to a global audience. The following guide describes how to set up tracking of their traffic with Voluum.

Table of Contents
Before You Start

The following things are required to set up tracking:

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An active RichAds account with some funds added.

  • An offer, and optionally, a lander.

Once you have everything, you can proceed with the guide.

I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

The first thing you need to do is to create a campaign in Voluum. This will provide you with a campaign URL that you will submit as a destination URL in RichAds. In order to do so, perform the following steps

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Add an Offer to Voluum article to learn how to do that.

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

  3. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with the RichAds pop traffic source template, so you can use it and skip most of the manual setup. In order to use this template, perform the following steps:

    1. In Voluum, go to Traffic sources.

    2. Click the Create button and select the Traffic source option from the drop-down menu.

    2. Select the RichAds pop traffic source that you have just created from the Traffic source drop-down menu.

    3. Provide a name for the campaign in the Campaign name text field.

    4. Define the cost model that you will use.

    5. (Optionally) Select a lander you have previously created from the Landers drop-down menu.

    6. Select an offer that you have just created from the Offers drop-down menu.

    7. Click the Save button.
