Hi @Václav J

The vars passed to it are wrapped up in another function. You can find details and a sample here:

Hope that helps!

I have the same question and had already read the help pages (e.g. Dave_Davis' link). I'm using the "onclick" variant, and my link's URL keeps changing because the program version it downloads keeps changing. So, I want to use a more generic version of the link as the argument. E.g. link is "http://site.com/software_v15.abc", argument is "http://site.com/software_vANY.abc"

 

But the question arises anyway: What if the visitor comes via https, but the argument I decided for starts with http? This suggests that the argument may be arbitrary, but the help page Dave_Davis linked should really do a better job at explaining this than it currently does. It says:

 

<a onclick="goog_report_conversion ('http://example.com/your-link')"
href="http://example.com/your-link">Download now!</a>

 

This doesn't answer the http(s) question, it doesn't say if there's a maximum length (A user might wonder if their URL argument is too long and if that's the reason their conversion is not being verified.), it doesn't say if the link text could be different or what exactly the argument is good for in the first place.

Hi Dave,

 

The article you mentioned sometimes uses 'http://example.com/your-link', sometimes 'tel:800-123-4567'. I really do not understand what I should use. Can I use any string, or does it have to adhere to some protocol?

 

Thanks

Vaclav
