Otherwise, if you request respondents to your ads to "write" ABC, or 123, they might easily forget to do so and then you will not be able to tell where response is coming from on Internet.
If you know HTML, you might be able to set responses using "Quotation Marks" that go before an email address to "Key" your ads. Or you can code URL in ad with a question mark, like: http://emailexchange.org/sig.html?ad5
Reviewing your logs will show you how many people actually accessed your sig.html document from placement of Ad number 5.
