Introduction

OddBytes does not allow advertisers to pass through the actual keyword or referring domain to their 3rd party reporting via a macro. Because we understand that having keyword and domain information is important for targeting and optimization, we have keyword and domain IDs to collect the information for later use.

Below are instructions on how to identify keywords and domains using their IDs while logged into your OddBytes account.

Please note: Keyword and domain information on a conversion level can also be viewed via the Main Report if you have a OddBytes pixel placed or you import conversions via our Conversion Import Tool. For more information about the Conversion Import Tool, please click here.

Keyword IDs

Main Report:

  1. Click on 'Reports' on the left side navigation.

  2. Click on 'Main Reports'.

  3. Select date range to pull data for via the date picker.

  4. Under 'Break by Metrics', select 'Keyword'.

    1. This will automatically select Campaign and Creative.

  6. Select the pixel(s) under 'Break by Column'. (optional)
