Hey Team,


I want to track the adpositon through the value track paramter i.e.{adposition}. I have the ads setup with the destination URL in the ads to (may be).


Now i dont want to edit the ads right away to test this. I want to try and check once before I create new ad copies with option of Final URL.


I want to setup the Tracking Template at the adgroup level to track the adposition. Please tell me how to do this step by step. I am little confused with this {lpurl} and how ti use that in the tracking template. 


Note, my objective is to track the adpositon using value track at the adgroup level tracking template.


Please tell me what should i type in the tracking template option in the Adgroup level. should i write{adposition} or  adpos={adposition} or {lpurl}&adpos={adposition} or {lpurl}={adposition}

HI Subbu,

I am not expert at this but from what I have gathered when reading about upgraded URL's, if you are not using Value track parameters then you need to add the '{lpurl}' bit before all your tags.

So essentially, your tagged URL will be:{lpurl}adpos={adposition}

I would like to hear others take on this as well.

Hope this Helps!

hi Subbu,

I hope you might have got the answer by now but incase if you are still looking for the right answer then read below -

As I understand, You want to use {adposition} value track at adgroup level template.
under the template section you can either use {lpurl}?|{adposition} or {lpurl}?adpos={adposition}

Hope this answers your query
