Does auto-tagging happen on ads that you don't have in GA?

If my final URL is not in a GA account,  does adwords still append tracking on these domains?   or only the ones that are setup and linked in GA?

Hi Kevin,

Auto tagging is a simple feature which let's you connect AdWords with Google Analytics. Once it is enabled, you are able to review all the campaign stats in your Google Analytics account as well. This actually helps in deep diving and analysing the user behaviour at deeper level. More details here:- https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033981?hl=en#how-auto-tagging-works

Thanks,

But does it add any tracking parameters to URLs that I don't have in Google analytics?

I don't want those modified, only the ones from GA.

Kevin,

Can you clarify whether the final URL you are using in AdWords, does it have necessary GA property associated with us? And if yes, is it linked back to AdWords?

I have a mix of URLs. Some have GA and are linked,. Others I don't have GA. Those URLs I want to make sure are not modified.

If your URL is not associated with any GA, that won't be tracked back in the analytics interface. On the other hand, if URLs are linked to GA and AdWords with autotagging on, those would be reflected back in the GA interface.
