Simulate a Google Ads Click to Test Tracking Numbers


Call tracking numbers are displayed based on the marketing source of the visitor. We walk you through how to test your tracking numbers from different traffic sources. We look at a direct visit and then we show you how to simulate a visit from Google Ads, without clicking an ad.

To simulate a Google Ads click, add ?gclid=test&wc_clear=true to the end of your URL.

    Example: http://www.whatconverts.com/?gclid=test&wc_clear=true

or, add campaign, content and keyword variables to the test URL

    Example: http://www.whatconverts.com/?gclid=test&wc_clear=true&campaign=test-campaign&content=ad-test&keyword=keyword-test

The following video shows you how to test your call tracking numbers.

A Gclid is a unique tracking parameter and also an abbreviation for "Google Click Identifier".
