If your tracking template is already used by another service, you can alternatively set up click tracking with the final URL suffix only.
You can let ClickGUARD set this up automatically - visit the PPC accounts page, select your Google Ads account, and open the Tracking tab.
Enable the Automatically configure click tracking toggle, and Use the final URL suffix only, then click Save settings. Now ClickGUARD will automatically set tracking via URL suffix on your Google Ads account.
Important: When tracking with the final URL suffix, there are a few important things to consider:
You need to have a tracking code installed on your website
Since traffic is not coming directly from Google Ads, we will be tracking ad clicks with the help of a tracking code. With parameters set in the final URL suffix, the tracking code will report those visits as paid traffic.
Make sure you have a tracking code installed on your website for URL suffix tracking to work.
You will not be able to track bounced clicks
Since all the paid traffic is tracked directly from the website landing page, we can't accurately track bounced clicks. When a visitor closes the web page immediately after clicking on an ad, by using only the final URL suffix we will not be able to track this type of click.
If you don't want to miss these clicks, make sure you set up tracking with a tracking template instead.
