Analytics goals and Adwords conversions

Hi All

 

Wondering if someone can help me here.

 

I have taken over the management of a clients adwords account, and enabled adwords conversion tracking. However, he linked his analytics goals to stream through to the adwords account, previous to my involvement. 

 

Basically, when I look in the adwords account, the converted clicks is not accurate, as it is counting the google analytics goals as conversions. I have removed the analytics goals from the Tools > All Conversions rows, and just left the adwords conversion in place. I am not sure if it is historical data or not showing for the campaigns, but it still seems to be tracking analytics goals as conversions. 

 

I know I can view the conversions from the segment filter, but is there a way to only show conversions from a google adwords click through the adwords view? Basically, getting rid of the analytics goals all together?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi David,

It won't be possible to delete all the historical conversions you imported through analytics.

Thanks,
Siva.

Hi Siva

Thanks for your reply.

I assume that because I have removed the goals from Adwords in the conversions settings that it will stop logging goals as conversions from now on?

Many Thanks - David

Yes, it won't import goals from now on but you cannot delete the historical conversion data.

Thanks,
