Facebook Web Tracking


Kochava provides the ability to track campaigns run through Facebook Ads Manager. The following document defines the process for setting up a Facebook Web campaign within Kochava, linking the Kochava campaign to a Facebook Web ad and how the traffic against the Facebook Web Traffic campaigns will be displayed within Kochava Analytics and Reporting.

 

Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Valid Facebook Ads Manager account

Create a Facebook Web Campaign

  1. Log in to Kochava.
  2. Select the desired web app.
  3. Select App Tools>Campaign Manager.
  4.  

     

  5. Click Add a Tracker or Select Segment Tools>Add a Tracker.
    1. Select the Campaign.
    2. Select the Segment.

    NOTE: In order to streamline the Campaign/Segment/Tracker creation process a feature has been added to allow the creation of campaigns and segments while creating a new tracker. For more information about creating a campaign or segment while adding a new tracker, refer to our Create an Install Campaign support document.

  6. Enter the Tracker Name.
  7. NOTE: When a Tracker is created, Kochava automatically generates a name for the Tracker. We recommend that you replace the Tracker name at this point with a clear name of your choosing.

     

    BEST PRACTICES: For Web Traffic campaigns in Facebook Ads Manager, you will need to create a unique tracker for each distinct landing page/destination URL. You may select the method to organize the trackers, however it is recommended that all trackers be created within a single campaign and use segments to group various trackers together. At the tracker level, specific names of trackers may be created based upon the landing page destination. If there are a large number of trackers, the Kochava Power Editor may be used to replicate trackers in bulk. For more information on the Kochava Power Editor, refer to our support documentation.
