Adwords Offline Conversions - Conversion cannot precede the click date

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey All,

 

I'm getting the error message "Conversion date cannot precede the click date" when trying to import offline conversions to AdWords. I'm in Atlanta and have my time zone set to -0500 and i'm certain that the conversion happened after the click since it was made through an outbound phone call coming from a contact form submission in my website. I tried to set the time to 23:59:59 as it was suggested in a similar post but that didn't work either. 

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Hey Carlos,

 

Could you please check the Format of Timezone once again?

 

Format Examples :

 

MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss aa "08/14/2012 5:01:54 PM"

MMM dd,yyyy hh:mm:ss aa "Aug 14, 2012 5:01:54 PM" 

MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss "08/14/2012 17:01:54" 

yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss "2012-08-14 13:00:00" 

yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss "2012-08-14T13:00:00"

 

Cheers!

Check your system Date and Time. I guess the problem lies when system time sync with offline conversion tracking and system time is backend or preceded the date of the AdWords system.. While importing or exporting you might get this error message. 

 

As conversion will only happen after the click, But if you import or export to the system and you Local PC date is sync and behind it may cause the issue.
