Listicle monetization: how to add tracking pixels per item/slide

We understand that monetizing a slideshow or listicle is a vital practice for publishers these days, so here's a comprehensive breakdown on how to implement a tracking pixel per slide with trackSlide.

1) Go into the Layout and Design tool link in your left nav.

2) Click on the Post Page on the design tool menu, that's where we will be adding the pixel.

3) Click on the '+Add Element' button and select the Custom HTML.

The position you insert it is not relevant, but we suggest somewhere easy to find.

Remember to name the element so it's easily recognizable too.

4) There, you can insert any piece of custom JS or HTML, in this case we inserted a trackSlide script.
Example below:

<script type="text/lazy-javascript" priority="6">{{require}}(['core/event_dispatcher'], function (eventDispatcher) {    eventDispatcher.on('post_page:shown', function(e) {        if(window.snowplowKW) {            window.snowplowKW('trackPageView');        }    }, this);});</script>

5) Remember to hit 'Save' and done!

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
