If I recall correctly, Brett, AdWords will only accept a conversion following an actual ad click. So, script aside for now, how are you trying to test this? I don't think just loading the landing page will do anything.
On this thank you page
Trying to get the conversion tracking within Google to work.http://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722021
I want to be able to go into Google and validate my conversions. i am testing it by trying to validate the code on the page. from another thread I am assuming that I don't need both scripts. Today my template has this one:
<!-- GOOGLE ANALYTICS - async -->
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
I also am having the same issue - did you ever figure this issue out Brett?
Does anyone know how to track the conversions through Google AdWords for a landing page that leads to no thank you page? We have the asset just opening up instantly after someone completes a form, but I know that Google suggests placing the code on a thank you or some follow-up page after the form is completed.
I know this is a few years later, but we are experiencing the same issue. Did you find a solution for this?
Andrew, please open a new thread and I'll pursue it further with you (you can link back to this thread). Only the OP can close a thread so it's better not to revive zombie threads, since they can't be (re)marked as Answered.
Did you ever get the tracking code to work?
We want to track conversions (i.e. goals) in GA. I have put the tracking code on the templates that we use for relevant landing pages, but I still cannot get conversions to track at all.
I also tried putting the tracking code directly onto each relevant landing page, but that does not seem to work.
