Assisted Conversions vs Regular Conversions

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hello,

 

I am creating an Adwords weekly conversions progress report for a client. I also want to add Adwords Assisted Conversions.

 

Are Paid Search Assisted conversions independent from regular conversions shown in Adwords' conversion tracker? 

 

Or do both numbers overlap a bit?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Hector C,

 

Assisted conversions do not count as "additional" conversions in your report. For example, Campaign A displays 6 conversions and 8 assisted conversions....this does not equal 14 conversions. In fact, all 8 assisted conversions could have only helped assist 1 of those 6 conversions (Adwords does not pin point that relation in the reporting). At the end of Campaign A's duration, it only converted 6 times with 8 assisted funnel paths.

 

 

The Assisted Conversion reporting can be enabled at the keyword level so you can review the effectiveness of the conversion path at a granular viewpoint.

 

This article was posted in another forum about this same question. It will give you a further explanation of how Assisted Clicks/Impressions are calculated.

 

Here is another forum discussion about the same issue: Assisted Conversions

 

Let me know if this cleared up your questions/concerns?
