Help with Adword Tracking Setup

Hello,
I have been searching all day and have not found a solution that works so I am hoping someone here can provide some insight. :)

We have Marketo forms embedded on our website using iframe.  I would like to populate the lead source automatically depending on whether it came from paid (Google Adwords) or organic.  I found this article: How to pass URL parameters to a form in an iframe.  I am not sure if this is what I want to do though as I got it to work, just not the way I had hoped.

I added ?lsource=paid to the end of my URL that I used in the iframe tag.  I also set the lead source field on the form to hidden and to Get Value from URL Parameter.  The parameter name I used is lsource.

As I said, this worked but then I realized that it was going to change the lead source to paid for ALL leads, not just the paid.  I tried changing the URL for the page that has the embedded Marketo form so that it contains the URL parameter but it does not work.  

I also found this article but it seemed overly complicated and I hoped there was an easier way :)

Any ideas?  Thanks!!
