Use Conversion Rules for Your Campaigns

If you’ve created conversion rules for your campaigns, you can select one or more of these rules from an entire list available at the advertiser level.

You simply click the Show advanced settings item from the Enter your settings section of the Create new campaign dialog and enter your conversion tracking tag and browse from a list of conversion rules.

Conversion tracking is a great way to determine if your campaign is working and how effective it is. You can then measure and optimize your campaign’s performance.

Conversion Rule Basics

You create a conversion rule with a name and category, adding a default value and specifying the URL of your conversion web page. You then place a code snippet - a conversion tracking tag - on your website. This code snippet informs you when a user has reached the conversion page or taken an action on your web page.
