Making an ad for an android app

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I wanted to set up an ad for my android app, driven by downloads not CPC and CPM. When I was setting up the campaign, it asked me to setup conversion tracking, so I added a Conversion Tracker by giving my app play store link, after adding this it is showing unverified and I am still not able to setup the campaign.

 


I am new to Adwords, please help me as to what I should do.


 Thanks !

Hi Sagar,

Thanks for posting you QuerySmiley Happy

it seems that you campaigns did not receive any conversion so far(In your case Apps Downloaded).

As Adwords show "unverified" in Conversion section until a campaigns receives at least one conversion.

If your campaigns receives a conversion it will start showing "Reporting" in the place of "Unverified".
So please set up your campaigns and run it smoothly.
as soon as it gain one conversion it will start showing "Reporting".

Good LuckSmiley Happy

I have not started a campaign, I want to use this conversion tracker as a CPA as in I want to pay per download of the app, not on every click of the ad. Do I have to start a simple CPC campaign before I can do this ?
