Tracking template lpurl takes you back to the specified final url?

According to this article, https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6076199

 

When you define a final URL as your landing page, you can use URL options to manage your tracking and redirect information.

 

So, my website is example.com and the 3rd party service I use is called 3rdpartytracker.com

Let's say that I own the 3rdpartytracker website too.

http://www.3rdpartytracker.com/rd?keyword={_mykwid}&ad={creative}&url={lpurl}

 

Do I have to set a redirection script into 3rdpartytracker.com to send me back to the example.com ?

Or it will take me automatically back ?
I mean how does this work in a more technical approach ?

 

Thank you

Hi there,

In this case, you'll have to use the raw url as input to the third party tracking tool and get a URL which would redirect to the tool and then to the final URL eventually.

Then you can use this URL as the destination URL in AdWords. Final URL in AdWords is used for value track parameters, which you can use if you want that data apart from the third party tracking tool.

Hope that clarifies.

Good luck,

Thanks Sumanth. 

 

Hi Nikolaides, 

 

In case you have any further questions on lpurl or final url, you can ask the Product Manager directly on this thread.

 

Hope that helps,
