PLEASE HELP: Cross Domain Auto Linking

Hi guys,

 

I have a question on Google Analytics.

I have a Google Universal Analytics account tied to domainA.com.

I have domainB.com which receives Google Adwords traffic so users download our software from this domainB.com.

After installing the software there is an after-install page opened on the domainA.com. So users don't click any links on domainB.com to reach domainA.com.

I want to track both domains within one Google Universal Analytics account tied to domainA.com with Cross Domain Auto Linking. So I followed this guide https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034342?hl=en and implemented the code according to it but the problem is that I still cannot see which Adwords campaigns of domainB.com attributed to after-install goal as they count as direct visits to domainA.com.

How should I set up Cross Domain Auto Linking so I could see a proper campaign attribution and see my goals?

Any advice would be highly appreciated!!!

Hi Ashley,
You need to add each domain to the referral exclusion list. You can find out how it's done here - https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2795830?hl=en

However, if you want to see this data in AdWords, you simply need to add the conversion tracking code into the domainA.com conversion page.
