Create a Yahoo – Gemini Campaign

The following document describes how to set up a campaign for Yahoo or any Yahoo Partner.

NOTE: Only one Yahoo campaign within Kochava is required to track ALL Yahoo traffic. Any additional Yahoo campaigns setup with Kochava will display no activity.

NOTE: Create one Tracker for each Yahoo Partner you are working with. It is not required to create a Segment for each Yahoo Partner within the Campaign; all Yahoo Partner Trackers can reside in a single Segment.

NOTE: In order for data to be properly attributed to Yahoo Partners, a proper naming convention must be used when setting up your campaigns in Yahoo. For more information about the proper naming conventions to be used for Yahoo Partners within Yahoo, refer to our Yahoo Partner Naming Conventions support documentation.


BEST PRACTICES: Due to Kochava only requiring one (1) Tracker for all Yahoo campaigns, it is best to keep the naming convention general (i.e., Yahoo).


Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Numeric app store app ID (iOS – found within the app’s store URL)
  • Package Name (Android)
