Who is PlugRush?

PlugRush is the data-driven ad network, where you can buy and sell both mainstream and adult traffic in the following formats: Push, banners, native ads, and pops. PlugRush also works with trusted partner ad networks & exchanges (DSP/SSP) programmatically via RTB/XML.

means we are fully Integrated with PlugRush and we can start automating all your Campaigns but, We will suggest you add some more steps like — URL Tokens & the postback URL

We are about to set up some extra Tokens for PlugRush URL. To do so we just need to click on the button > Edit and from the slideout select the option > URL Tokens.

Each time you want to generate a URL for PlugRush we will be provided to you by default the following URL:

  • source={$domain_id} — a unique ID of the traffic source/website
  • bid={$cpv} — the cost per visitor (cpc)
  • pid={$click_id} — click_id used for conversion-tracking/postback
  • cmp={$campaign_id} — the ID of the campaign
  • keyword={$orientation} — The keyword sent per impression in a RON campaign
  • b={$creative_id} — The ID of your Banner/Creativity. Remember to select the Banner option when you are about to get your Campaign URL.

So if you need to add some extra Tokens to track in a more detail manner you can have a look here:

1.2 — Adding some Extra Tokens:

I am sure you are familiar with PlugRush Tokens but it is always good to show /explain them here for you:

  1. {$browser} — the browser name
  2. {$cc} — two-letter country code of the visitor
  3. {$source_id} — a unique ID to identify a Subsource, f.ex. a specific adzone from a top-level Source; it is strongly recommended to track this token to track traffic sources sending from PlugRush in the most accurate way
  4. {$source_referrer} — the referrer of the traffic source
  5. {$os} — the operating system of the visitor

Back into your LandingTrack Account Click on >Traffic Sources Tab>button Edit for PlugRush> Params section:

1.3 — Postback (Optional):

We are missing only one thing to finish the full integration with PlugRush, adding their postback. You can find it here:

PlugRush Account:

Click on Server to Server Conversion Tracking and Copy your Postback:

https://prprocess.com/conversion/?user_id=012345&click_id={$click_id}&currency=USD&payout={$conversion_amount}

Remember to replace PlugRush Tokens by LandingTrack ones:

. {$click_id} by {{PID}}

. {$conversion_amount} by{{PAYOUT}}
