How AnyTrack and Google Ads enhanced conversion works

When Anytrack receives a conversion from one of your conversion sources, it will parse the conversion data and will send it to Google Ads Tag according to the Enhanced Conversion Requirements.

Settings summary checklist:

  • Enable Enhanced Conversions.
  • Using GTag or Google Tag Manager.
  • Manual setup.
  • Remove Old tags.

In AnyTrack

AnyTrack will handle the data flow automatically, so you don't have to modify your code, update your site.

  1. Connect with Google Ads (if it's not done yet)
  2. Map the Conversion Goals according to your requirements.

That's it! πŸš€ From now on, any conversions eligible for the Enhanced Conversions will carry the relevant parameters and improve your ad attribution.

🚧

Note:

As soon as you enable the Enhanced conversions you will be required by Google to accept the terms of use. It appears that Google doesn't enforce yet this requirement, but it's safe to assume that they will soon start to enforcing it.

FAQ & Troubleshooting

  1. What parameters does AnyTrack sends to Google Ads?

    AnyTrack sends every eligible parameter that is included in the conversion received from your Conversion Source. For example, Shopify sends all personal data including shipping and billing address.
  2. Can I use a conversion Action that is already configured for Enhanced conversions?

    Absolutely. You simply need to make sure the settings are updated according to the anytrack requirements. -> In general, you only need to select the Edit Code Option.
  3. Do I need to configure the Enhanced Conversion parameters?

    No. The only configuration you need to do is to enable the Enhanced Conversions in Google Ads and for the relevant Conversion Goals. Once configured AnyTrack handles the process from start to finish.
  4. Can I use Enhanced Conversions if I have connected a Custom Conversion source?

    Absolutely! The only requirement is that you send to AnyTrack the required conversion attributes and they will be processed accordingly.
  5. How should I handle diagnostics warnings from Google?

    These diagnostics sometimes indicate that the Enhanced Conversions are not being processed because some parameters are missing or malformed.
    1. Conversions are still being processed, but some of the enhanced data is not being processed.
    2. Warnings are intended to help you improve the data. If you're confident the data is accurate but you still get some warnings, contact us and we'll investigate.
    3. The most important parameter is the Email address. Yet, adding more parameters is recommended.
