Adwords Conversion is tracking incorrectly

Hi,

 My Tracking conversion was verified. I have placed the respective code on the exact page within the body. I have checked with google tag assistant also. Everything works in a perfect way, but my conversion is tracking that all clicks as conversionsSmiley Sad . I would like to track conversion when someone would submit the contact form only. How to implement this? Wanna change any setting in conversion tools? Plz help me to sort this.

You need to have a thank you page that people see after the form has been submitted - and place the conversion code on the thank you page. Popular WordPress contact form plugins like Contact Form 7 and Gravity Forms have this functionality - just search for instructions.

Alternatively you can attach a Google Analytics event to the submit button and import the goal into AdWords. This ins't as good, as sometime people click on the button a few times before the submission is successful (missing out a required field, or getting the captcha wrong)

Thank you for your reply. I have placed my conversion code on thank you page only. My problem is different. For example: Clicks - 8, Conversion is also 8. But I got only one enquire mail. How it is possible that the clicks and conversion to be same?

Hi Dobiz,

The conversion code is available on the landing page also that is why every click is counted as conversion.
Remove this conversion code from the landing page.

Hi @Dobiz I,

 

Your conversion pixel is firing on the landing page itself.

Ideally, it should fire your 'thank-you' page only. I see three different conversion pixels on your 'thank-page', but not the one that's on your landing page. 

 

Make sure your conversion pixel is firing only on 'thank-you' page, and nowhere else. Also, why do you have those many conversion pixels on the same page? If you want to track different actions as conversions for the same AdWords account, it's ideal to have different 'thank-you' pages for them. 

 

Thanks

I'm also having this problem - showing 33 clicks when only 1 enquiry has come through.

<p><!-- Google Code for Contact Form Conversion Page --></p> is showing correctly on the thank you page.   url https://goo.gl/TBAogZ

I do have a couple of other conversion codes happening - would that interfere?

Also wonder whether search engine bots that visit the page are counted as a visit?

Hi Madalen,

 

AdWords will only report conversions from people who clicked on the ad. All other visitors are ignored.
