Hi Brian,

You have a few options for tracking this. First, you can use the Referring Links or Referring Sites reports. The Referring Links report should display the full URL (including query strings) that referred a visitor to your site. While Referring Sites should show the domain name or IP address that referred a visitor.

Another option would be if you have the FaceBook ads taking visitors to a specific landing page you can use the Entry Pages report, which can give you an indication of how well your marketing campaign is doing.

A third option would be to create a new site in SmarterStats pointing to the same log file locations. But add a log processing rule to get only the data related to that landing page for the campaign. You can read more about Log Processing rules in our online help here: Site Admin General Settings.

I hope this helps!
