Brand Campagin Tracking
Hi, we are looking to label brand enquiries generated through a brand ppc campaign. At the moment once the customer leaves the landing page we lose the query string so have no way of tagging the enquiry form? We can see total numbers in GA and Conversion Tracking but we want the cleary tag the enqury form with a hidden field? Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.

What data do you wish to capture? If you are just looking to tag the enquiry as AdWords source, use auto-tagging. Then look for the presence of a gclid value in the query string. If you find it, set a cookie for your domain. Then on the form, read the cookie. If it exists, fill the hidden field with whatever value.
You can also use manual tagging along with auto-tagging to capture more granular data. Do it the same way. You only get one chance to capture this data, on the landing page. I use both together for positive identification of the AdWords click, and it provides more data than manual tagging alone.
Best of Luck!
