Auto-tagging

A feature that automatically creates custom destination URLs to help you track your ad performance using website tracking programs like Google Analytics.

  • If you have multiple ads that link to the same page on your website, auto-tagging will attach a parameter to your ads' destination URLs to help you tell which ad was clicked for each visit to your site.
  • Google Analytics and similar programs can use the information in auto-tagged URLs to tell you which AdWords keywords brought a visitor to your site, which campaign that keyword was from, and how much that click cost.
  • Auto-tagging is turned off by default. You can check whether auto-tagging is on, as well as turn it on or off, by choosing Account settings from the gear menu () and looking at the "Preferences" page under "Tracking."
