Connecting your Perform Media Console (PMC) and Google Analytics accounts automatically sends relevant conversion data to Perform Media with no need to schedule or pull and send manual reports. Your conversion data is immediately available for campaign optimizations across search, native, display and other campaign types. Follow the step- by-step guide below.

Tracking Parameters Setup in PMC

In order to identify every Unique Click where the Conversion has occurred, the system needs to append a unique identifier called ClickID to the end of the Tracking URL. Please check with your Partner Manager if they have added a clickID macro under any of the supported UTM Parameters.

 

Key-Value Pair Example:

utm_term ={clickID}

Here is the link for all the UTM parameters supported by GA. In case all of them are already utilized, you can append the ClickID under any of the existing parameters following the below syntax.

Example : Case when the keyword was already being passed under utm_term and you want to pass ClickID along with the Keyword.

utm_term = {Keyword}_{ClickID}

 

Sample Tracking URL:

https://anytracking.com/search/1

 

Final Tracking URL:

https://sampleexample.com/tracking?utm_term ={clickID}
