System1 Integration Guide

After you have finished connecting one or more of the supported traffic source accounts in the first step of the Account Wizard process, you can continue connecting your System1 account in order to have both traffic source and System1 revenue data aggregated in one place.

Follow the below steps to connect your System1. Publisher account to TheOptimizer Native.

Step 1: When on the Account Wizard page select a traffic source account then click Next.
Step 2: In the second step of the Account Wizard, click on Add New to start connecting your System1 account.
Step 3:
On the pop-up integration screen click on the Select Tracking Platform drop-down list and select System1.
Step 4: Fill in the required information as noted in the below screenshot then click Save and Next to move to the next step.



Required input information details:

- Nickname: Add a friendly, easy to recognize name for your System1 account.
- API Key: API Key value as provided by System1 account (detailed below).

Step 5: In the third and final step, you simply need to specify the traffic source tracking token and System1 subid mapping.

Make sure to properly map your tracking traffic source tracking tokens to System1 subids.

Important Note!

Make sure all provided tracking tokens are properly mapped. In case one of the required traffic source tracking tokens is missing in your System1 mapping configuration campaigns statistics (System1 side) may be inaccurate.


Enable Custom Tracking

To provide additional support to System1 publishers, we have added the ability to use concatenated token value custom tracking that can be used to map multiple tracking tokens in a single subid along with the the token-subid standard mapping structure.

Top used traffic source custom tracking concatenated templates:

Concatenated Taboola Tracking String:  {campaign_id}|{site}|{campaign_item_id}
Concatenated RevContent Tracking String:  {boost_id}|{content_id}|{adv_targets}|{widget_id}

Concatenated Outbrain* Tracking String: {{campaign_id}}|{{publisher_id}}|{{section_id}}|{{ad_id}}
