I would like to feature your brand on more than one website. Do I need to complete a separate application for each site?
No you only need to apply once. Afterwards you can add as many new sites to your profile as you like and you will be able to track these separately.
What is conversion rate?
The conversion rate is the percentage of visitors who take a desired action from a click through. The action that determines conversion is determined by the advertiser and may be a sale on the advertiser`s Web site, a completed lead form, or another action. In the case of Mecca Bingo it is either a site visitor signing up an account or a signed up account to become a depositing player.
Are visitors who use my banners/text links cookied?
Visitors who click on a banner, text link or other creative for Mecca Bingo are cookied for 30 days. That means that even if a potential new customer visits Mecca Bingo but doesn`t register straight away, Mecca Bingo will recognize them as a customer that has come from your site/banner/text link.
