ValueTrack Templates for Shopping Ads or Product Listing Ads

Google Shopping Ads or Product Listing Ads work a little differently to regular AdWords campaigns. The main difference, from a tracking point of view, is that the shopping ads don’t provide a ValueTrack Parameter for Keywords.

    Note: If you integrate WhatConverts with Google Analytics or AdWords, we can show phone calls as conversions linked to your Shopping Campaign within your Analytics and AdWords accounts.

Instead of using the {keyword} parameter, we recommend using the {product_id}. The {product_id} is the ID of the product featured in the clicked ad, as indicated in your Merchant Center data feed.

ValueTrack Shopping Campaign Template Example
{lpurl}?campaign={campaignid}&content={creative}&keyword={product_id}
