Mobile App install campaign iOS tracking search

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I have set up a mobile App install campaign for search (for the first time) and I want to track conversions on iOS. When I made the different ad group it seems like there was generated one conversion code for each ad group. Can this be true or have I made something wrong? 

 

I read that conversion tracking for iOS is only available for Display network campaigns, is this still true or is it old news?

 

Best regards

Nina

Hi Nina,

 

Unfortunately that's correct, iOS app tracking through Google is only available on Display Network campaigns and not on App Install for Search campaigns at this time. Please see this help guide--I'm not sure if this is where you read it, but the tracking is only available for iOS with Display Network campaigns.

Hi Cassie,

Thanks for reply! But what is best practice then for tracking iOS App installs? and is it the best way to divide the campaign into several ad groups as it is in an search campaign for desk top?

Hi Nina,

The separation of the campaign into different ad groups won't have an effect on conversion tracking. Unfortunately you simply cannot use AdWords conversion tracking to track iOS installs on a search campaign. If you want to use this configuration on the Search network and also track app installs, you will need to look into a third-party option.

Hello,

 

Any update on whether or not ios app Downloads can be tracked through an AdWords Search campaign? Specifically, I'm trying to track conversions on a first_open event from firebase inside of AdWords. 

 

I'm able to add the event, but haven't received any conversions. Just trying to find out whether this is possible or not. 

 

Thanks
