PLA... clicks from normal search or shopping search?

Hi Community,

 

My google shopping ads are shown both in the normal search results ("All"), and also in Google shopping ("Shopping"). I've been trying to use the ValueTrack params to figure out of the search behind a click was from "All" or "Shopping", and I can't find and info on how to tell them apart. Am I missing something?

Also, I understand that the ads (since I have search partners enabled) can appear on google image search or other sites. Same question: how can I tell where the click is coming from?

 

Thanks!

currently, google offers no internal feature that will differentiate
between search-results (all) and shopping, for shopping-ads.

the shopping-campaign's dimensions-tab will allow differentiation
by segment -- google-search-network vs. google-search-partners.

google typically announces such new features on their official blog
or within the help-articles related to the merchant-center-account --
