What macros are available for advertisers to use?
Clickthrough URL Macros
These macros can be used to add data to an advertiser’s click URLs. These are especially useful when doing S2S conversion tracking and the client is tracking in Kochava, however they are not limited to Kochava users only.
Impression Tracking Macros
These macros are used to do cachebusting and to insert a unique timestamp in an impression tracking URL.
These macros can be used to replace the city or state in the text of an ad based on the user’s IP address.
- [GEOSTATE] – full state name. If the IP address lookup doesn’t return a result it will display "your state"
- [GEOSTATESHORT] – 2 letters state
- [GEOCITY] – ad "description" should start with the macro, but it can be everywhere in ad "title". If the IP address lookup doesn’t return a result it will display "your city".
