At LeadDyno, we focus on tracking users while avoiding the pitfalls and potential future issues that come with Third-Party Cookies, but it does mean it can lead to more involved testing.
In order to properly test LeadDyno’s tracking, you should use a fresh cookie session. The easiest way to do this is to use something like Google Chrome’s excellent Incognito Mode, which allows you to easily create new cookie sessions without clearing your current cookie cache.
Below are the steps you can use to test LeadDyno, using Incognito Mode:
- Ensure No Existing Incognito Windows Are Open First, establish that no Incognito windows are currently open in Chrome. Look for any existing Chrome windows with the Incognito logo on them:
- Open A New Incognito Window Next, open a fresh Incognito Window:
- Copy And Paste In Affiliate Link Copy the affiliate link of the affiliate you would like to test:
- Verify That The Visitor Was Tracked
Close all Incognito windows if they're open.
Paste it into the new Incognito URL field in Chrome and hit enter.
Return to LeadDyno and make a note of the affiliate's visitor count. Next, refresh the affiliate's page. You should see the visitor count for the affiliate has incremented:
Continue through your registration/purchase process and ensure that LeadDyno is being sent Lead and Purchase information via your installation.
High five to you, that’s it! You can now test as many affiliate links (and Tracking Campaign) as you’d like. Just be sure to use a New Incognito Session (that is, close all existing Incognito windows and reopen a fresh one) for each link you wish to test.
