Introducing two new updates in Outbrain, designed to enhance your campaign tracking and reporting, and expand your cross-platform analytics capabilities:

Ad Name Tracking Parameter: The new Ad Name parameter is now included in Amplify’s click pixels, enabling effortless tracking of specific ads across different analytics platforms.

Enhanced Conversion Naming: You can now include underscores (_) and dashes (-) in your conversion names, ensuring consistent naming conventions with other analytics platforms.

Note: If you have two similar conversions (e.g., “my conversion” and “my_conversion”), Outbrain will count conversions for both names. These updates aim to streamline your tracking and reporting processes, providing more accurate and comprehensive insights to optimize your Outbrain campaigns and achieve better results.

Discover the latest enhancements to our campaign management and conversion tracking tools, designed to meet your need for speed, precision, and reliability.

At Outbrain, we’re committed to taking your campaigns to the next level with our newest updates. First up, we’re introducing a game-changer for campaign selection. Our revamped Campaign Selection dropdown now not only displays the status of each campaign but also sorts them accordingly. Finding active campaigns has never been easier. And with the added checkbox feature, you can easily select all your active campaigns in one action, streamlining your workflow like never before.

We’re also revolutionizing conversion tracking with our updated Conversion Status feature. Say goodbye to guesswork – the status now reflects all hits to your conversion rule, regardless of their source. No longer limited to Outbrain conversions only, you’ll have a comprehensive view of your conversions.

Plus, we’ve added a ‘last activity’ timestamp in the tooltip, enabling you to quickly identify any installation issues without the need for manual testing.

We understand the importance of real-time insights, which is why we’re continuously improving. While the status is currently updated hourly, we’re already hard at work to reduce this wait time in our next update.

So stay tuned for even faster, more responsive tracking. Experience the difference with Outbrain’s enhanced campaign selection and conversion tracking – speed, precision, and reliability at your fingertips.
