Quora Conversion Pixel Destination

Segment makes it easy to send your data to Quora Conversion Pixel (and lots of other destinations). Once you've tracked your data through our open source libraries we'll translate and route your data to Quora Conversion Pixel in the format they understand. Learn more about how to use Quora Conversion Pixel with Segment.

Getting Started

When you toggle on the Quora Conversion Pixel in Segment, this is what happens:

  • Our CDN is updated within 5-10 minutes. Then our snippet will start asynchronously loading Quora Conversion Pixel’s tracking snippet onto your page. This means you should remove Quora Conversion Pixel’s snippet from your page.
  • The Quora Conversion Pixel will automatically start tracking visits and bound track events you’ve defined on your Segment.com Quora Conversion Pixel destination.

Here’s how you can get started with using the Quora Conversion Pixel!

1. Log into the Quora Ads Manager.

In order to access the Quora Conversion Pixel, you will need to have a Quora business account. If you don’t yet have one, sign up for one here.

2. Access the Conversion Pixel tab and select the pixel.

From the topbar, select the “Conversion Pixel” option. From there, select the “Install Pixel” button to view the Quora Conversion Pixel snippet for the account.

3. Find the Quora Conversion Pixel write key.

Once the tag has been found, scroll down to the code snippet provided by Quora. Grab the string of characters (no quotes) inside of the line of code shown above. In our example, we would copy 015c7f4e514b4b61b643e15c1f5dd82d - however, make sure to copy the specific string given by Quora - not the one in this example! Once we have the Quora Conversion Pixel write key, we can move onto the final step!

4. Activate the Quora Conversion Pixel destination in Segment.

Log into your Segment account, and go to the Destinations Catalog in the desired workspace and select the Quora Conversion Pixel destination (located at https://segment.com/<Your Workspace>/destinations/catalog/quora-conversion-pixel).

From there, select “Configure Quora Conversion Pixel” and select the desired source to activate it for, and select “Confirm Source.” The desired source will be loaded, and a sidebar will appear, asking for the Quora Conversion Pixel ID.

Select that option and put in the Quora Conversion Pixel Key that we collected earlier. Select “Save.” In addition, one can bind any number of Segment Track event names to Quora’s Generic event, as described below. Once ready, select “Activate Destination.” Our servers will build the latest CDN, and the Quora Conversion Pixel will then load on the sites that use that source’s Segment snippet!

Overview

Segment makes it easy to send your data to the Quora Conversion Pixel. This pixel sends data back to Quora so you can measure activity, track conversions and optimize accordingly. After you’ve setup the destination you can view conversions in the Quora Ads Manager (http://quora.com/ads/account). You can setup a Quora ads account at quora.com/business (http://quora.com/business).

The Quora Track Event

Right now, Quora only supports a single track event: Generic. At the moment, one can assign a number of event names to trigger off this Quora track call. This track call is planned to change and expand in the future, so please keep that in mind.

Quora Conversion Pixel Key

Enter your Quora Conversion Pixel write key. It should be a series of letters and numbers, which you can find in your Install Pixel option in your Quora Ads Manager -> Conversion Pixel tab. It is the string of letters and numbers that is the second argument to qp('init', <This is your write key>)
