Adwords campaign and ad group IDs within tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Our client wants to use Adwords Campaign and Ad Group ID in tracking. Is there a macro or a parameter that can automatically or dynamically append these IDs in the URL?

 

Thanks,

Rashi

Hello, Rashi.

As far as I know, Ad Group ID and Campaign ID are not available in the AdWords interface. They're only available in the API (and are visible in Google Analytics as well).

The only unique ID you can insert is the Ad Id (the {creative} valuetrack parameter in the list over here https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2375447?hl=en ).

And since that creative is unique you may tie it to its Campaign (by name, not by ID) and to its ad group, if you export an ad report and see what ad is present in which campaign and ad group.

But automagically inserting the ids in the destination URLs is not, to my knowledge, possible.

I believe I found a way to see the Ad Group IDs and Campaign IDs.

In Chrome, if you hover over the name of the Ad Group, on the bottom left (or copy the URL) you can see the IDs as parameters. Here is the structure of the URL. My Adgroup ID would be the 123456789 in the URL below.
