Offline conversions - one gclid, two conversion goals

Badged Google Partner

Hello community,

 

I have a client whose tracking offline conversions from AdWords and importing those conversions to AdWords. If I create new conversion action and upload some of these conversions - same gclid, conversion time, but different conversion action name. Are these going to get uploaded to AdWords account under this new conversion action in AdWords or it won't be uploaded because conversion with the same gclid has been already uploaded previously to the other conversion action?

 

first conversion action - all registrations

second conversion action - registered and even purchased product - so uploading feed with these conversions means the GCLID will be the same with first conversion action.

 

Cheers,

 

Tomáš

Short answer: It will be uploaded.

 

Adwords doesn't verify if that conversion with a certain GCLID already exists in the account. If you have that conversion over Conversion 1 and then upload again to Conversion 2 you will have the same conversion counting for both conversion actions, so watch out for not having duplicated conversions in your account.

 

Hope this helps.
