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 www.example.com (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.

 

Thanks,

Subbu

Hi,

1- Click the Ad group tab
2- Click the Columns drop-down, then choose Customize columns.
3- Under "Select metrics," choose Attributes.
4- Find "Tracking template" in the list of attributes and click Add.
5- Click Apply at the bottom of the window.
6- Hover over any entry in the new "Tracking template" column, and click when the pencil icon appears and
7- Fill in the URL you use for tracking. You can include both ValueTrack parameters and custom parameters

Note sure if you find the answer as 2 months has passed.

You can never have Tracking Template implemented without Final URL or with Destination URL. You will have split your Destination URL into Final URL & Tracking template and put it in respective fields. Final URL has to be at Ad level but you decide to put Tracking template at Account, Campaign, Ad Group or Ad level.

Hope this helps others.
