Hi Ecohang,

If you have linked google adwords and google analytics account then you don't need to use utm tracking in ads url.

Hope it helps you.

Hi Ecohang,

 

As Suman said, you do not need to use UTM tracking in your ads if you link your GA & AdWords. It is however a good idea to use UTM tracking if you are recording data at your back end.

 

You need to setup your back end such that it reads the landing page URL and the tagging you have done to pull data and store it under the right sections at the back end.

 

If you are talking about how to check if AdWords is recording GA data, then you can do that by checking if Auto tagging is enabled in AdWords. Auto tagging is something that enables AdWords to record GA data. 

 

You can read more about it here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1752125?hl=en

 

Hope this Helps!

 

Cheers!
