You can use ValueTrack parameters if you are doing manual tagging.  They are not mutually exclusive.  Maybe what you're really looking for is the difference between manual tagging and auto-tagging?  If that's the case, see if this helps:

Hi Kanishtha,

 

I guess this would depend slightly on what exactly you are using tracking for.

 

ValueTrack is a preset tool for tagging. You can find out about the preset parameters here.

 

Also, here is a good thread regarding ValueTrack.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi, Kanishtha.

 

I see 3 main differences between Value Tracking (V.T.) & Manually Tagging(M.T.):


1. M.T. provides not so much information as V.T. 

2. M.T. is easier to use in Google Analytics. You can find these parameters almost in every report of GA.

3. When you use M.T., you'll see the URL parameters which you wrote (manually). But when you use V.T., you'll see the URL parameters which were filled automatically

 

Hope, you understood my English Smiley Happy

 

Goog luck!

Thanks. But I want to know if they do the same thing (Value Tracking & Manual Tagging) or they are different from each other. They both have different tracking codes. In adwords help, it looks they are used for the same purpose. Can you please differentiate between Value Tracking & Manual Tagging.
