    Simulate a Google Ads Click to Test Tracking Numbers


    New Dashboard
    Legacy Dashboard

    Tracking numbers are displayed based on the marketing source of the visitor. To simulate a Google Ads click, add ?gclid=test&wc_clear=true to the end of your URL.

    The GCLID parameter is the unique parameter that allows us to know the click came from Google Ads and wc_clear=true clears any prior WhatConverts attribution on your browser.

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

    You can also add campaign, content and keyword variables to the test URL:

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

    After simulating a Google Ads click, place a test call to the tracking number you see on your website. Log into the WhatConverts profile you've set up to track calls in. Click "Leads in the top-menu. In the Lead Manager, review your test call lead data.

    Example Google Ads Phone Call Test

    Click "View Lead" when hovering over the Lead to view the full Lead Details.

    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".
