AdWords Conversions Tracking "No HTTP Response Detected"

[ Edited ]

I am currently working on simply adding a conversion tracker to a contact page to track when a button is being clicked. Although I have done extensive testing with the Google Tag Assistant plugin for chrome, it shows the tag to be "green" and have no errors. Unfortunately it is still marked as "unverified" in AdWords. The one worry I have is that Google Tag Assistant is telling me "No HTTP Response Detected", so I feel that could be causing this issue. Thank you in advance for all who can help, I will paste code/info below:

 

HTML

<tr><td align="center"><input type="submit" class="submit" value="SEND" onClick="goog_report_conversion" data-category="Contact" data-action="Click" data-label="Form-Click" data-value="undefined" data-event="GAEvent"></td></tr>

 Code copied from Google AdWords for Conversion Tracking:

<!-- Google Code for Contact Button Conversion Page
In your html page, add the snippet and call
goog_report_conversion when someone clicks on the
chosen link or button. -->
<script type="text/javascript">
  /* <![CDATA[ */
  goog_snippet_vars = function() {
    var w = window;
    w.google_conversion_id = 1008948150;
    w.google_conversion_label = "HhjACKebjWgQtqeN4QM";
    w.google_remarketing_only = false;
    w.google_conversion_value = 150;
  }
  // DO NOT CHANGE THE CODE BELOW.
  goog_report_conversion = function(url) {
    goog_snippet_vars();
    window.google_conversion_format = "3";
    var opt = new Object();
    opt.onload_callback = function() {
    if (typeof(url) != 'undefined') {
      window.location = url;
    }
  }
  var conv_handler = window['google_trackConversion'];
  if (typeof(conv_handler) == 'function') {
    conv_handler(opt);
  }
}
/* ]]> */
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
  src="//www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion_async.js">
</script>

Hi Nick,

On page processing can be such a pain sometimes. Long live confirmation pages! Smiley Happy

While my coding/scripting chops have dwindled down to basics level at this point, I figured I'd take a look.

You can read the error code here: https://support.google.com/tagassistant/answer/2947038?hl=en#http_response - that might help verify what's occurring.

That said, if you're not wedded to AdWords conversion tracking, you could also explore using an Analytics Event to track the button clicks, register those events as goals and then import them back into AdWords. Tag Manager may also be a way for you to work around some of these troubles, there is a lot of great 'out of the box' functionality with GTM.

Sorry I can't help much with your direct button click/AdWords Conversion setup.

Good Luck!

I really like your idea of utilizing google tag manager in this situation, I am going to give it a try. That being said, will I be able to use the tag manager information to tell whether that click came from an AdWords ad or not? I will mark this as answered, as I got the original code to work for the most part, but I feel I may be able to be more descriptive with my information if I use tag manager.

Hi Nick,

Absolutely, think of Google Tag Manager (GTM) as a middle man, a platform to install your tracking setup. Instead of editing your pages, you make edits in GTM which are then distributed by the GTM container across the website. Your standard Google Analytics (GA) tracking code will be set up in GTM as well - that's generally the first piece of business.

As far as the attribution goes, the answer is yes. Both the Goals and Events will be tracked in your GA account and properly attributed to AdWords. You can view the data in GA via Acquisition > AdWords or from many other reports in GA. These same goals can be imported back into AdWords as well for optimizations.

When AdWords and Analytics are linked, there is a really clear path between the two for data sharing. GTM, being a Google property, fits nicely in the middle.

Here are some good resources for GTM:

Hope you get everything worked out and do come back if you have any further questions.

Thanks!
