Craigslist Viewer Tracker and Counter

StarCraigslist Viewer Tracker and Counter Installation Guide


There are two ways of tracking your Craigslist ad visits. The first (recommended) is to have a separate project for each AD listing. This will ensure that you have the most detailed statistics available for each one of your craigs.

The second method of tracking viewers of craiglist ads is to have all of your listings tracked under a single project, which makes it easier if you have  a lot of different ads and would like to use the same tracker code for all of them. This method will combine all data under a single project and may not be as detailed but has its advantages.
 

Method 1 - Tracking each Craigslist AD separately:

  1. Register your web visitor tracking account at Website Click Tracker

  2. Create a new Craigslist listing as usual until you get to the point of entering your Craigslist AD text

  3. Login to your account, click on "Add New Project" menu item, and then click on a tracker icon that you'd like to use (all styles function the same

  4. Specify "craigslist.org" as your project's URL and name your project appropriately based on the listing's name, then select "Craigslist.org" from the tracker drop down menu while generating your fraudLog code and click on "Get Code" button

  5. Right click on and copy your new Craigslist HTML visitor tracking code

  6. Paste the tracking code right below the text of your Craigslist AD (in the same window as the text of your Craigslist . Click on CONTINUE button and the tracker will show up on the Craigslist AD preview screen.

  7. Once you posted your craiglist AD, verify that the tracker now shows up on your listing

  8. Additionally, you can now go back to your Website Click Tracker account, click on "My Projects" menu link up on the top of your Website Click Tracker account screen, and then click on the "edit" link for the project you just had created and update the "Website URL" field with the full public URL of your Craigslist listing.

  9. If you are a premium fraudLog subscriber, we suggest that you make the tracker icon invisible by following this simple step, so that it doesn't affect your Craigslist AD appearance.


Method 2 - Tracking all Craigslist ADs with the same tracker code under the same project:

  1. Register your web visitor tracking account at Website Click Tracker

  2. Create a new Craigslist listing as usual until you get to the point of entering your Craigslist AD text

  3. Login to your account, click on "Add New Project" menu item, and then click on a tracker icon that you'd like to use (all styles function the same

  4. In this case, Name your project appropriately and enter just the domain of the website, NOT the specific listing's URL (e.g. boston.craigslist.com or craigslist. in the project URL box.

  5. Select "Craigslist" from the tracker drop down menu while generating your fraudLog code and click on "Get Code" button

  6. Right click on and copy your new Craigslist HTML visitor tracking code

  7. Paste the tracking code right below the text of your Craigslist AD (in the same window as the text of your Craigslist . Click on CONTINUE button and the tracker will show up on the Craigslist AD preview screen.

  8. Once you posted your craiglist AD, verify that the tracker now shows up on your listing

  9. For all new Craiglist.org ADs, you may now use the same visitor tracker code. If you have lost your original visitor tracker code, simply click on the [tracker code] link to the right of your project name on [My Projects] page and the system will generate the original tracker code.

  10. If you are a premium fraudLog subscriber, we suggest that you make the tracker icon invisible by following this simple step, so that it doesn't affect your Craigslist AD appearance.
