Hi Mahmoud-Magdy,


Please clarify your question. Remarketing campaigns only run on the Display Network. Do you want to set up remarketing for people who reached your site by clicking on a search ad?


If that's the case, here's an idea. Manually tag your search and display campaigns. Something simple like "medium=search". When traffic lands on your site, check the query string. If the medium is "search", then set the remarketing cookie. This can all be done with Javascript on you landing page. If you're not sure how to do that or what this all means, get professional help.


I create different remarketing lists for paid and organic search like this.


Best of Luck!
