Hi there,

It really confuses Google, don't do it.

I did this once for a client that had 8 different countries in different campaigns sending PPC traffic to the site, but the thank you page at the end of each different language registration was the same URL, because the language content only changed dynamically (i.e. URL didn't change by language).

So I tried to have 8 conversion tracking codes on the same thank you page. But Google just got tangled up (I don't blame it) and we really had no idea what the true conversions were; our AdWords reports were certainly not matching up with what we were seeing in the site's back end.

So my advice would be:

1. Don't put multiple conversion tracking codes on the same page

2. Create different thank you pages where needed

Thanks
