i have a question abount: Adwords GCLID
I have notification in google analytics:
"The Ad Destination URL http://lopota.ge/news/239/eng from the AdWords account ********************** has accrued a significant number of clicks but a lower-than-expected number of corresponding sessions because the page is dropping or altering the gclid parameter inserted by Google. Check the web server's redirect logic or its use of a URL rewrite engine to ensure the gclid parameter is preserved."
how i can solve this?
2) In this Campaigns when i click on ads: clicks goes not in landing page,but in a homepage.
Can anybody please explain me it?
Many Many many Thanks
You probably have auto-tagging enabled in your account and every ad, when clicked, sends the visitor to a page such as http://lopota.ge/news/239/eng?gclid=xyztdgts27334664something
The part after gclid= is the click ID. Unfortunately, your server does not handle that parameter correctly and redirects the click to the homepage.
Please talk to your webmaster / developer and ask them to configure your site to accept parameters such as ?gclid=test at the end of any URL. After they report back to you that it should now work, just take an ad final URL, append ?gclid=test to it and make sure that the server stays on that page and no longer redirects.
Hope it helps.
