We Can Track is an affiliate data attribution software which helps affiliate publishers to automatically match their traffic and conversion data and integrate the data in the marketing tools they use simply by placing We Can Track’s JavaScript tag or installing their WordPress plugin on the website and connecting network accounts via a Postback URL or API credentials as explained on their MyLead integration page (https://wecantrack.com/mylead-integration/). The whole setup process can usually be done within 5 to 10 minutes.

How does the conversion data attribution and integration work?


Once We Can Track was fully installed, it will automatically place SubID (ml_sub) parameters with unique click IDs in the publisher’s affiliate links. These click IDs will allow We Can Track to trace the conversions back to the traffic data and thus attribute it to dimensions like website, page, campaign, traffic source, device, location, content and more.This data will then be reported in We Can Track’s dashboard, but also integrated in Google Analytics, Google Ads, Microsoft Ads, Facebook Pixel & Ads, Data Studio and more.
