Hi

 

If I an internal search result page as destination-url in my ads, will it give me problems regarding tracking and Google Analytics?

 

And if so, can it be fixed in some way?

 

Example. URL looks something like:  

 

www.example.com/advanced_search_result.htm?search_in_description=1&inc_subcat=1&keywords=Britney+Spe...

 

 

Best regards, 

 

Magnus

Hi Magnus,

 

If you are using auto tagging feature, then you shouldn't be worried about tracking your AdWords data in Google Analytics because auto tagging is going to acumulate the AdWords data automatically in your Analytics account.

 

Make sure you adhere to the Display and Destination URL Policy while implementing them inside your account:

As Pankaj explain there will not be a problem provided that you have autotagging activated - but you must also make sure that the destination page has the GA tracking code on it - sometimes you need to check this with dynamic pages as it can get lost along the way....

Hi Magnus,
To add to Pankaj's answer, you should have no problem tracking AdWords visits to a internal search page.


One word of caution, and you may have already checked this, but if you are using Auto Tagging, make sure it works for your site before activating -
