Manually create a conversion or add to remarketing list via javascript

Hi there,

We're trying to trigger the addition of a visitor to a remarketing list in Adwords based on an ajax form submission (there is no physical confirmation page to drop the code on).

 

1. We'd like to create a function that is called on the form submit and triggers the list addition. 

 

2. I see the mobile conversion tracking for Adwords has an asynchronous version. Anyone know of an async version of the normal conversion tracking code?

 

3. Most of the solutions we've found just create the tracking pixel. We don't mind that but would like something cleaner.

 

Thanks, Chris

Hi Chris,

 

Remarketing lists are really the same thing as conversions except that you can not define the conversion as an Analytics goal or event. The only way (apparently) to create the list is with the AdWords conversion code that is provided by Google for the rem-marketing list.

 

If you're using Ajax to do this, the only way to do it is with the image (tracking pixel).

 

Best of Luck!
