Hello Sasha

This means that your tracking is working and also receiving conversion as view through conversion is when a user sees an ad, and then later completes a conversion on your site with any other or same medium like desktop, mobile or tablet. So you are receiving conversion by PPC only.

Hope this works

Hi Sasha,

 

IMO, if View through Conversions are being tracked, then this shouldn't be an issue with conversion tracking script.

 

Still as a side note, why don't you try and click your own ad and then complete the process of conversion which you have. After that wait for a while and see if the conversion number appends in your account or not.

 

Here are some of the other methods that can be used to troubleshoot conversion tracking:-
