How do I aquire data from another site to my site while notifying the other site


#1

I want to give people a code that puts an ad on someone's site, and I want to have reports that it has been shown on the site. Thank you.


#2

Do you care if it it easy for these people to circumvent the tracking?


#3

I am trying to make an advertising platform, I don't get why they would try to circumvent but sure


#4

in short, no

One way that springs to mind is that, rather than providing the other party with an image, you provide them with a link to a script on your site that produces the image. So while it's producing the image to show on their site, it also updates a log to record that it's been shown. So the link you provide to the other site would include some way to identify that site.

<img src="https://example.com/youradserver.php?siteid=theirid&advert=whichad">

then in youradserver.php parse the siteid and advert to decide which image to show, and to record the caller.

That may be a horribly outdated way of doing it now.

that's a pretty good idea, but that is fairly limited. But it is okay of an idea... because it probably works
