Uploading Conversions Via Spreadsheet

Hi there,


I am trying to upload a manual conversion (Tools -> Conversions -> Uploads).


I've downloaded the template, filled out all the relevant information but arrive at the error:


"We cannot find an import conversion type with this name in the target account"


I phoned Google support whose advice was to the "Import Site Metrics" field is checked in "Linked Accounts -> Analytics" is enabled, which it is.


I have tried uploading the conversion using both the Event Action name (as per Google Analytics) and also the name of the conversion action in Adwords "Tools -> Conversions".


Interestingly these two names are different - the name in the Adwords tool was generated automatically upon importing the goal from Analytics.  Nevertheless, when I try both I still get the same error above.


Please could anyone help me solve this once and for all?


Many thanks!

Hi Jamie


Manual upload conversions and importing GA conversions are totally differenct features.

If you want to use the numerical values measured by GA, I think that it is better to import from GA.
If GA is not measured(like offline conversion, negotiations, etc), you need to use manual upload.
