ignore goals coming from landing pages

I have set up a goal conversion once a user gets to a specific page on my website; however, this specific page is also used as a landing page for a marketing campaign. Any idea how to exclude goal conversions that come from a specific source-like cpc?

Hi Nancy,

 

It sounds like this landing page is a mid step in your conversion funnel and you may want to measure the conversion rate to this landing page from sources other than cpc. If so, you can use organic/direct segments along with other reports to find out the specific source goal conversion rate. Think again if it's really necessary to create a specific goal for one dimension -- it can make things more complicated in other ways.

 

Now, to answer your question, you can add parameters to your destination url, basically creating another layer.
For example, use begin with /landingpage/?a=1 as your goal destination url.

Redirect  /landingpage/ to  /landingpage/?a=1.

And set your final url in adwords campaigns http://www.mysite.com/landingpage/?a=0

 

Best,

Marko
