Replace text/email for adwords visitors?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I have set up adwords website call conversions so that any time a visitor comes from AdWords, a call tracking number is displayed instead of the default number. This helps track which calls where a result of our ads. I'd like to achieve something similar for displaying a different email address to those that click through from an ad. We already have a contact form, and can track conversions through this, but the owner wishes to keep an email address displayed on site too. At the moment if people email this we can't tell if they came from an ad or organic source. Showing a different email for those from ads would help achieve this.

 

This email would need to be displayed even if they navigated away from the contact page, then returned. Is there a plugin (Using Wordpress) or way to achieve this?

 

Thanks

This is a neat idea, but no "google tracking email" feature.
Having said that there are many ways to segment users using Google Analytics. Have you tried that?

It is definitely possible to achieve. I couldn't find a plugin that does it, but one could be written.

Here's an explanation of what needs to be coded:

Because this is similar to a technique used in Black Hat SEO - serving different content to Google Bots than to the public - you could could potentially be putting your organic rankings at risk if you implemented it.

Again, this feature is NOT supported by AdWords and I would avoid any practice or technique not commonly supported and accepted by Google. A violation of webmaster guidelines is ALSO a SEVERE violation of AdWords Policy, resulting in immediate suspension.
