AdWords Campaigns: Updating URLs for Better Tracking and Management
Beginning July 2015, the Google AdWords team plan to upgrade advertising campaigns and include improvements on URL management to help better track information about each click on the ads. With upgraded URLs, it will be possible to take advantage of the new ValueTrack and custom tracking parameters.
Today, ad and keyword tracking in AdWords relies on a destination URL that contains a landing page URL and tracking parameters. Upgraded URLs offer a simpler way to manage these tracking details, letting you manage shared tracking templates at the account and ad group levels. You’ll also use two new fields to manage your ad URL and tracking information:
- One field for your ad’s final landing page URL
- One field for tracking template parameters
