parameter for first clcik tracking purpose. So will this conflict with the autotagging feature is something i am not sure of. So if any one has any ideas please share. Thanks in advance!

Hi

I belive you are refering to utm_nooverride=1 parameter.

If that is the case 

Then simple answer is yes it will work with auto tagging enabled and your syntax for the same should be 

http://www.site.com/page.html&utm_nooverride=1

 Hope this helps

I don't think that's right. The query string should always start with a question mark. So, it would look something like this instead:

 

http://www.site.com/page.html?utm_nooverride=1

 

AdWords is smart enough to know there are already parameters in the query string and will handle the URL accordingly and add the gclid value using an ampersand (&). I checked my logs, the gclid value gets appended at the end.
