Tracking

Search engines offer a feature called conversion tracking which is a way to track clicks to sales from either search results or ads on search engines. Using either web beacons or visible images, depending upon the search engine, the search engine notes and saves information in a cookie with non-personal information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. Information is gathered in the aggregate, without unique personal data. Conversion tracking allows the search engine company and Optimum International to track clicks to sales, including the number of clicks (visits) it takes before a purchase is made and permits Optimum International to measure the effectiveness of its search engine participation.
