Pulse Ad Serving improvements
Global tracking pixel
External tracking by systems other than the Pulse tracking, has been available on a per-ad basis to satisfy the advertiser's 3rd party tracking needs. Now, customers/publishers also have the ability to set up external tracking over all their campaigns and ads, through the global tracking pixel. All events available in Pulse, for example impressions, clicks and quartiles, can be tracked in this way.
All added global tracking pixels work retroactively, which means that the tracking is applied to all ads that were already active before the tracker was added.
To start using this feature, open the Settings in Pulse, select the Global Tracking tab, and click Add External Pixel Tracker. The URLs may contain macros, which are described on the Ooyala Pulse Macros page.
