link with a tracker in mobile app engagement campaign

Hi everybody! Please advise how to add a tracker to url for mobile app engagement campaign. Lets’s imagine that the application url is example.com and the tracker url is http://tracker/c/123 (where с is my accounts number and 123 is a campaigns ID). If I make the link like android-app://com.example/http/tracker/c/123 it directs to the application bypassing the tracker. Where is my mistake? How do I need to make the correct link?

Hi Kelly and all,

 

Here's an update:

 

App Engagement (Remarketing) ads do not allow 3rd party redirect URLs.

3rd parties can Google's in-app conversion tracking solution to measure conversions for these ads. All the major tracking companies are able to do this. If they have a question, feel free to refer them to Google's developer docs. Refer to this list to see if your analytics company is integrated with our remarketing solution and can be used to create remarketing lists. Note that this remarketing does not support redirect links. 

 

Please do let us know if you have any further questions.

 

Thanks, 

Mini

Hi Kelly,

I'm not quite sure how this can be done. I also tried it on a test account and like you saw the link goes to the application. I have asked a technical specialist to throw some light here.

Thanks,
Mini

Thank you for reply, Mini-CM! Much appreciated. I would be grateful if you share the instructions of the technical specialist with all of us. The policies say the tracker can be used in url for mobile app engagement, but unfortunately there no detailed instructions how to do this. Thank you very much for your help
