Detailed description of query parameters

  • origin_iata/destination_iata - departure and arrival airports – strings.
    Recommended values: "IATA code for city".
  • depart_date/return_date - departure/return dates – string.
    Recommended format: "Y-m-d" ("yy-mm-dd" for JQuery).
  • one_way - “One way only” check box, equal to 1 or 0.
  • adults/children/infants - number of adults, children, and infants – numbers.
    No more than nine seat-occupying passengers (adults + children) can be in a single query. Infants travel without their own seat and are carried by the adults. The number of infants cannot exceed the number of adults. If the number of infants is larger than the number of adults, the excess number of infants is counted as children (with their own seats).
  • marker - unique affiliate ID code, use all times in the link except when the query is being made to a White Label site (for White Labels it is not necessary to specify a marker, since the marker is automatically included; any marker explicitly specified in the URL will be considered an additional marker). An additional marker can be added if necessary (by adding a "." after the main marker).

Examples

Creating a URL that leads to a search form and automatically fills in part of the form, without initializing search:

http://jetradar.com/searches?origin_iata=MOW&destination_iata=BKK&adults=1&children=0&infants=0&trip_class=0&marker=PostYourMarkerHere

Creating a URL that leads to a search form and automatically fills in part of the form, without initializing search, with an additional marker:

http://jetradar.com/searches?origin_iata=MOW&destination_iata=BKK&adults=1&children=0&infants=0&trip_class=0&marker=PostYourMarkerHere.additionalmarker

Sample GET search query with search initialization:

http://jetradar.com/searches/new?origin_iata=MOW&destination_iata=CAS&adults=1&children=1&infants=0&trip_class=0&depart_date=2016-12-01&return_date=2016-12-15&marker=PostYourMarkerHere&with_request=true

Sample GET search query with search initialization and additional marker:

http://jetradar.com/searches/new?origin_iata=MOW&destination_iata=CAS&adults=1&children=1&infants=0&trip_class=0&depart_date=2016-12-01&return_date=2016-12-15&marker=PostYourMarkerHere.additionalmarker&with_request=true

How can I generate an affiliate URL for hotel searches?

To get an affiliate form for hotel search, go to the Text Link section and click the "Hotels" tab. 

Link to hotels filled search form

You can create links to the main page of Hotellook with the completed search form. For example https://hotellook.ru/?destination=Moscow&checkIn=2016-12-01&checkOut=2016-12-02&adults=1&children=4,5

The following parameters can be passed in the link:

  • destination - the destination of city or hotel;
  • checkIn - the check In date;
  • checkOut - the check out date;
  • adults - number of adults;
  • children - age of childrens, separated by commas

Monitoring of link effectiveness

To see how effective your different affiliate links are, you should add an additional marker to each link when you create it. There is a special field for this purpose in the URL generation form. You can create as many markers as you want and view reports on your account page, where you can find statistics for each marker.

This is especially convenient if you are distributing multiple links and are actively pursuing success in the affiliate program. For example, if you are placing links or search forms in the text of articles, you can create a separate marker for each link and search form, which tells you which links are giving you the most conversions and purchases. Then you can concentrate on writing more articles of this type and thus earn more commissions.
