Whilst mapping your tracking profiles is not typically necessary when using Routy's tracking functionalities, it can be very useful for historic data and for programs that do not support click tracking. In this article you will learn:
- Why should you map your tracking profiles

Why map your tracking profiles?
Mapping your tracking profiles helps Routy understand where your conversions are coming from. If you have data you would like to view on Routy that was, or is not passing through Routy links that you would like to map to brands and traffic sources, you can use our mapping system. This can be useful if:
- You would like to have a historic view to your conversions at a traffic source level
- You do not have Routy links on your entire site and want to get a full view of your site performance on our dashboards
- You work with programs that do not offer click level reporting
How to map your tracking profiles
After Routy has crawled or connected to your affiliate accounts, it will show the tracking profiles on the account page and in the Tracking Profiles section on the sidebar.
There are two ways you can map your tracking profiles:
- Visit the Tracking Profiles page on the sidebar of Routy to view all your tracking profiles
- Visit the account via the Accounts page on Routy, and find the Tracking Profiles section to view your tracking profiles from the specific account
