Set Up App URL Rules

For app URL rules, a conversion occurs when a customer uses an app that matches your specified app URL. An app URL can be a Google Play Store or Apple App Store URL. App URL conversions are tracked by mobile measurement providers (MMPs). DSP supports many of the common mobile measurement providers.

  1. From the New Rule page, be sure the tracking purpose for the rule is Conversion.
