Hi Vladimir B,

If you are using Google Analytics, returning visits from a bookmark are recorded as direct. AdWords will not count this as a click.

Google support has assured me that returning to a bookmark that includes the gclid will not double count the clicks. This does not set (or reset) the cookie the AdWords conversion script uses.

Best of Luck!
