Adtrackz Offline – Login Error – Domain Expired

 

Update

It seems to have been a weird glitch from the domain registrars, certainly not a DNS issue.
Adtrackz.com was coming up as a domain holding page for an expired domain, but it is now working correctly.

Does this mean I am a stats junkie?

I know lots of affiliates use Adtrackz for tracking, and a few of my readers might even have the resale rights to it.

I was greeted with the following when I went to log into Adtrackz this morning:-

Adtrackz Error

Adtrackz Expired

Adtrackz Domain Expired

The Adtrackz domain has expired, and unfortunately this is going to cause lots of problems.

  • Adtrackz uses some software protection to prevent you installing the script on too many servers and giving it away to all your friends. It only performs the check when you log into your stats or to create new links, but the check relies on a check for authorized domains with the main Adtrackz.com domain
  • I should note that existing tracking links are still working, you just can’t check your stats or create new links, though “on the fly” creation might still work.

  • Tracking images on thank you pages – this was one of Adtrackz unique selling points, it could be used to track sales for affiliates, because there was some universal code an affiliate program manager could place on their thank you page, and that would work with all affiliates. Unfortunately that image is probably served from the Adtrackz server, and thus will no longer work, and might even display some page errors.

I am trying to get hold of Jonah to sort this out, though I don’t have a direct phone number.

I have submitted a support request at one of his other sites, ListJoe, and maybe he will spot a link through to his Jonah Klimak profile page.

I will also try to contact him via the Warrior Forum

    Hey Andy, when I posted my comment I got 2 pages of errors. This is the only one I could grab from cache.

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter – headers already sent (output started at /home/andyeu/public_html/wp-content/plugins/SK2/sk2_second_chance.php:2) in /home/andyeu/public_html/wp-content/plugins/translator/translator.php(15) : eval()’d code on line 1

      It is a probably with SK2 and WordPress 2.2.1

      People have been reporting the error to me for over 1 month, but as the comments still get through, I decided to wait patiently for a patch.

      Hopefully the problem has gone away with the latest update

      Regarding Adtrackz, it is working for me now as well, in fact almost as soon as I hit publish it was working again.
      I immediately included the update which unfortunately doesn’t display as well in feeds and emails.

      I put it right at the top of the page.

    Well the domain did expire 8/3 so hopefully he will renew so the service stays up for those using it.

    I’ve been talking with another company who does something similar but in a different way. Instead of needing to put a pixel on the merchant’s site, it integrates right into the networks – CJ, LS and CB anyway. Looks pretty cool. Its at http://keywordxray.com/ if anyone needs a replacement in the event Adtrackz does not get renewed, but I’m sure it will.

      I am signed up for something similar, Affiliate Radar, but it isn’t quite the same.

      1. Adtrackz is very easy to use for cloaked links – Affiliate Radar and from what I have seen Keywordxray are designed for PPC, not cloaked links on websites
      2. Adtrackz can create links on the fly, you don’t even have to log into Adtrackz to create tracking links – you use a new one that hasn’t been used before and it is automatically added

      It is true that Adtrackz is missing built in support for all the various tracking IDs, plus lots of other neat features but I wouldn’t class either of these apps as being suitable for tracking links on a blog.

      (I have a half finished review of Affiliate Radar and some other products to post sometime soon)
