My website is all html page with buynow button which points to the link in shopping cart. I have several ads placed in other website and I need to know where the customers are coming from and where they are going on my website besides buying a product. Is there any other way to track the customers besides creating affiliate cookies. I have tried affiliate approach but it only indicates where they are coming from and if they bought something. It does not say anything about what else they browsed on my website. Also I would like to have different expiration date for each ads cookies and was wondering if i want to embed that in cookie and more information to the cookie how do I do that? Thank you for your help

The products we use for this are metatraffic and trackpoint. Although I thing google analytics will also help.

Here is a little Stupid Cookie Trick which can be very helpful if you want to READ the Expiration Date of a Cookie:

(And you thought there was no way to Read a Cookie Expiration Date, too, right?

Just make all your cookies have a Cookie Keys collection like this:

Response.Cookies("5000Watches") = Request.Servervariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
Response.Cookies("5000Watches").expires = Now() + 1
Response.Cookies("5000Watches").domain = "5000Watches.com"
Response.Cookies("5000Watches")("Expiration") = Now() + 1
Response.Cookies("5000Watches")("IPAddress") = Request.Servervariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
Response.Cookies("5000Watches")("UserAgent") = Request.Servervariables("USER_AGENT")

... then you can READ this parallel universe Expiration Date by doing this....

Response.Write Request.Cookies("5000Watches")("Expiration") OR

dtExpireDate = Request.Cookies("5000Watches")("Expiration")

And all along everyone has been telling me that there is NO WAY to Read a Cookie's Expiration Date....

This year is my 10th Anniversary as a VPASP consultant. Suggestions made to Howard Kadetz which were adopted as part of the core VPASP system include the VeriSign Gateway which I actually debugged and validated, the Snitz Forums Application which you are using right now, and ChiliSoft ASP for MySQL and Linux. I have been developing both ASP, ASP.NET and SQL Server Applications for the same timeframe and my clients have included: United HealthCare, Bank of America, Sirius Satellite Radio, Sovereign Bank, Boston University Medical School, EMC Corp., TJMaxx Stores and several other Fortune 100 or Fortune 500 Companies.
