dynamic search ads with utm parameters

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

hi all,

 

i would like to run some dynamic search ads in my AdWords account.  However, it is extremely important that my final URL show UTM parameters for internal tracking software purposes.  I would like to know the following:

 

1) can I add UTM parameters to dynamic search ads?

2) do I have to use ValueTrack parameters?

3) how do I use both ValueTrack and UTM parameters so that my final URL shows utm_campaign, utm_medium, utm_source, keyword & creative?

 

I have looked everywhere and cannot find any information on how to add UTM parameter to dynamic search ads that do not allow me to designate a final URL.

Hello Brad,

Ad URL options are still available in DSA campaigns both on campaign (settings tab) and Ads tab when you are editing text ads.

this does not explain HOW to do what I need.

 

i do not know what to put in so that the landing page is dynamically selected, but the UTM parameters always append to the landing page as utm_campaign=google_adwords&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc.

 

This is a MUST for my internal tracking to work correctly!

To help users like you, the upgraded URLs Product Manager is available on this thread. 

You can find answer there, also you can post your final URL question there if Product Manager didn't cover it before.
