New Tracking202 Soon To Be Released

While no release date has yet been announced, Wes Mahler sent out a tweet today that a new version of Tracking202 will be out very soon.

Tracking202 2.0 highlights:

Unparalleled Flexibility – Track everything in ways not yet available on any of the tracking systems in the market.

Lightning Fast Redirects – We all know slow redirects cost you money and conversions, so we’ve optimized the new Tracking202 to serve up redirects in the blink of an eye

Fully Open and Expandable – We built this from the ground up to allow you to modify and customize the software via the powerful API we expose

Enhanced Workflow – You shouldn’t have to spend hours setting up your links, and with our new enhanced workflow, you won’t have to. We’re talking bulk uploads and automation galore!

There’s more to share – Like the new robust offer rotator, impression pixels, path analysis, enhanced reporting, tons more data points tracked so you can slice and dice things just the way you like it, and the list goes on!

According to this post on the Tracking202 blog, The new version is not simply an update, it is a COMPLETE rewrite starting from scratch.

Sounds great, except “complete rewrite” makes me kind of wary.  I mean the older version has been field tested by thousands of users.  All new software has growing pains.

That being said, path analysis sounds awesome and something that has been sorely lacking when compared to paid solutions.  And the API?  Fuggetaboutit.  If it’s done right, it’ll be cake to bust out some killer mods and add-ons!

UPDATE 12-3-2010

According to a comment by Nana Gilbert-Baffoe This new Tracking202 will NOT be free.  Bummer.   He writes:

“There will always be a free Prosper, but you get what you pay for.” ….

“So we have thought hard about this, and have decided that the new release is not going to be free, we knew that a lot of you are used to not paying. But, we also know that the stuff we want to add, and how quickly we want to iterate on features and functionalities, costs a LOT to do properly.”

While I totally understand that the 202 team needs to somehow monetize this project, it’s a shame these newly announced fixes are not going to make it into the free Prosper 202 everyone has come to know and love.

Oh well… I guess all good things have to come to an end eventually.

  • So excited for this. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    Even though it is a “complete rewrite”, I feel like Wes and Co. have learned exactly what is expected and needs to be in a affiliate tracking software. i think it’s gonna blow away their previous versions 😀

    • For sure Wes and Nana know how to do it right. I agree, this should be really good!

      Thanks for reading & commenting.

  • Looking forward to this. I’m on the super early beta access list or whatever nana is calling it. Ha

  • Hi

    thanks for posting on this, I wanted to reply to this comment and also clarify a bit:

    “Oh well… I guess all good things have to come to an end eventually.”

    The free Prosper202 is not dead… “Some” of the fixes will move over after we launch version 2.0.

    We haven’t fully figured out what will make it over and what will not. Somethings will not be possible without a full overhaul of the p202 backend.

    This is actually one of the reasons for the complete rewrite.

    • Thanks for clearing that up Nana. We’re all looking forward to what the new 202 versions have in store.

  • Awesome, I am so excited to see what features they are adding 🙂

  • I’d pay for it in a heartbeat… i actually like it that they are making it paid so its a bit more exclusive and not everyone has a copy of it…

  • Glad to see the new version is about done. I’m sure the free version will live on still. Maybe someone else will take up and add some features to it.

  • Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.

    If you know of any please share. Many thanks!
