Hi Antony,

 

If you're familiar with manipulating/tagging your destination URLs and you have the coding ability to pull the keyword from the URL as a hidden field in a form, I think you can accomplish this with ValueTrack parameters.

 

For instance, if you wanted 'keyword' and 'matchtype' you'll basically take your ad's destination url and edit it

 

From:  www.mywebsiteurl.com/mysitesection/mypagename.html

 

to:  www.mywebsiteurl.com/mysitesection/mypagename.html?keyword={keyword}&matchtype={matchtype}

 

Then in your code, you would pull the 'keyword' & 'matchtype' variable values from the URL and set them to the appropriate value of your hidden fields in your form.

 

Check it out and see if you think this will work.
