Can I append another tracking code before the gclid parameter?

I want to append a tracking code for Salesforce prior to AdWords's auto-tagging (gclid parameter). Is this possible, is so... how?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

David

Hi David,

Yes, you can use auto-tagging and manual tagging together. Set the manual taggin up in the tracking template. Leave auto-tagging on.

Best of Luck!

But wouldn't the gclid parameter be before the other parameter in the URL string?

Hey David,

 

If you use the Ad URL Options, it gives you the option to add different tracking parameters.  You can also set it up at a campaign level, which is found under the settings > Campaign URL Options

 

There is also a google support article which tells you how to set up conversions with Salesforce.

Hi David,

After checking my log files I can confirm the gclid is added after your manual tagging parameters. But it really shouldn't make any difference.
