Can you give me more information on all the Accounts Settings?


Sure thing, let’s run through each setting in each category …


Default Settings

Default Date Range – This is the default date range used for most of your stats and reports.

Time Zone – All timestamps and stats within ClickMagick will be adjusted to reflect the time zone you select.

Copy To Clipboard – When you create a new tracking link or rotator, ClickMagick can automatically copy the new link to your clipboard so you can quickly and easily paste it wherever you need to use it. This is enabled by default, but you can also turn this off.

Sub-Group Links – By default, Sub-Group links are not shown when viewing the sub-group’s “parent” Link Group. If you do want them to appear in the parent group as well, you can adjust this setting.


Click Filters

ClickMagick can automatically flag or block six different types of “bad” clicks, which helps keep your stats as accurate as possible, and can even save you money. You can adjust these settings on a per-link or per-rotator basis, but you can also set account-wide rules in your Account Settings.

For more information please see the two articles below …

Traffic Settings

Tablet Tablet As – Here you can specify if you want mobile tablets to be treated like a “Desktop PC” or “Mobile Phone.” Generally speaking you’ll want to treat them as a Desktop PC, which is the default setting.

Error URL – If a click can’t be delivered to a specific tracking link or rotator, it will be redirected to your Error URL so the click isn’t “wasted.” This can happen for example if you accidentally delete a tracking link that is still receiving traffic, or your account is receiving requests to links that don’t exist for any other reason. You can also set a unique Error URL for each one of your custom domains separately in the domain manager.

Block Countries – If you do not want clicks from specific countries reaching any of your webpages or sites, you can redirect or block them here. Rather than being redirected to your Primary URLs or Rotator URLs, any clicks from countries you select here will be redirected to the optional URL you specify. If you do not specify a URL, the click will be blocked and the user will see a generic error page.


Alerts Settings

Sale Email – Set to Yes if you’d like to receive an email confirmation each time you make a sale.

Split Test Email – Set to Yes if you’d like the system to email you automatically when you have a statistically valid Split Test winner, so you don’t have to worry about constantly checking your stats.

Invalid Click Threshold – By default, ClickMagick will alert you via email if you receive more than 10 clicks to a non-existent link in any 24 hour period, as this usually indicates a problem that requires your immediate attention to avoid wasting traffic. But you can change this to any number you want. For example if you find that you’re getting a lot of “bot” clicks to your links you might increase this to 50 to reduce the number of "false positives" generated by bots and other automated requests due to normal web activity.


Public Stats

Affiliate Username – Public Stats pages are used to share stats for a specific tracking link or rotator URL with other people, like clients or business associates. If you’re a ClickMagick affiliate you can enter your Affiliate Username here so that if you share a public stats page and someone signs up for ClickMagick via the optional banner at the top of your public stats pages, you’ll get credit for referring them to ClickMagick.

Engagement Stats – By default, your Engagement Stats are displayed on Public Stats pages that you share with others. But if you don’t want this data shown on Public Stats pages you can disable it here.

Sales Stats –  Same as the above, but for Sales.

“What do you want at the top of the page?” – At the top of your Public Stats pages you can choose to display the ClickMagick logo, your own custom logo or image, or nothing at all. If you choose the ClickMagick logo and you filled in the Affiliate Username entry described above, the logo will link to your affiliate account.


ClickBank

ClickBank Secret Key – To integrate ClickBank with your ClickMagick account you’ll need to add your “Secret Key” here. Please see the article below for full details:
