No conversions recorded in AdWords although my YouTube ad is making sails

I'm running Youtube Ads for a week with some success BUT my AdWords conversion counter is still 0.

 

1) Conversion tag is active. Last seen:

    Dec 10, 2016 at 7:57:07 AM (today) 

    No conversions recorded.

 

Although I've made 12 sails last night running only YouTube ads, no organic reach

 

Please see this prints:

 2) Conversion tracker is implemented & verified with Google Tag Manager:

 3) My YouTube video is Unlisted so the only way to watch it is through my ad

 

4) My website si linked to Search Console, my YouTube channel and AdWords

 

 

I can't see where the problem is! Can Anyone help?

Hi,

 

Why? I'm making sails... the problem is that the convention tracker doesn't work so I can't see which of my keywords are making the most sails

You mentioned that "Conversion tracker is implemented & verified with Google Tag Manager:"

Yes, the conversion is triggered in Tag Manager debug mode BUT is NOT incremented in AdWords, please see the prints from my initial post

I looks that the tags are correctly installed, but user  do not convert, thus no conversion is recorded. 

It doesn't seem as a code issue, but a targeting issue.

 To get used to convert you should expand your targeting method and  receive  more ad impressions

But I've made a lot of sales with that ad... and the conversion counter is still 0. So i must do a lot more sales in order for the conversion tracker to work? You are saying that the conversion tracker is not reliable?

NO. I'm saying that the conversion code / tracker is OK, and the reason for no conversion should be looked in the campaign targeting methods.

Ok, thank you for your suggestion, but what exactly should I search in my campaign targeting method? Tell me and i'll make prints from my campaign settings

I found this:

 

"One of the most famous causes of having -zero- conversions tracked with AdWords conversion pixel, is because of a URL that loses its referral information due to a redirect."

 

But I don't know what " URL that loses its referral information due to a redirect." means and how should I fix it
