Dynamic Search Ads data in Analytics.Most of Dynamic Search data is not visible in Analytics

Dynamic Search Ads data in Analytics. Most of Dynamic Search data is not visible in Analytics (all text and rich media ads I coud measure, auto tagging works).

Under the Adwrords tab in Analytics

Mostly there are no Visits data, however I could see Adwords click data, but at some compaign (there are some visits data but only a fraction of the number of clicks (e.g. number of clicks around 600, number of visits around 120).

In Adwords I could see the actual destinatio pages (auto target tab -->see search terms).

Many email to helpdesk, but their only idea was using manual tagging by url builder.

I use dínamic ads in two of my clients' account, both of them are affected.

Dynamic ad urls contain the default {unescapedlpurl} only

and for testing purposes {unescapedlpurl}?manually tagged 

neither of them are working.

Any idea, experience?

Hello.

 

Is it possible that your URLs are not working when placing your custom tags (i.e. they break the website)?

 

{unescapedlpurl} can be the URL of any page on your website. Therefore for a page such as http://example.com/page.html, that is the {unescapedlpurl}.

 

For {unescapedlpurl}?tag1=value1&tag2=value2, the landing page URL will be http://example.com/page.html?gclid=1234...&tag1=value1&tag2=value2 (because there's auto-tagging).

 

What I would do in your situation is to generate a list of all your URLs, append ?gclid=test&tag1=value1&tag2=value2 to them (?gclid=test plus all your tagging variables) and use a link checker to see they all work. If some don't, it means that clicks that land on those pages break the website and Analytics does not get a chance to fire its script.

Thanks to Everyone.

 

Found the solution. 

It was a redirection problem. Somehow adwords used URLs were redirected by the server - so while I set up the links manually, I could use only links with no redirections (I saw links, that were already redirected) - and the server just cut all the tags off. :-(

 

It was really hard to find this as in the "normal" operations it just does not happen (as I do not see URL to be redirected).

 

Regards,
