How Floodlight activities are shared between Campaign Manager 360 and the new Search Ads 360

 

The new Search Ads 360 reports and bids on Floodlight conversion actions, which are conversions powered by Floodlight activities. These Floodlight activities are shared between the new Search Ads 360 and Campaign Manager 360.

With shared Floodlight activities, you use the same set of Floodlight tags to track conversions for both display and search ads. This helps to prevent double counting conversions that span across different ad formats.

How does sharing work?

The sub-manager and advertiser relationship

Every Search Ads 360 sub-manager account is associated with a unique Campaign Manager 360 advertiser. The sub-manager and advertiser accounts share the same set of Floodlight settings, activities, and tags used to report conversions. 

Synced Floodlight activities

Floodlight conversion actions you create in the new Search Ads 360 also create Floodlight activities in Campaign Manager 360, and vice versa. It may take a few hours before shared Campaign Manager 360 Floodlight activities appear as conversion actions in your new Search Ads 360 sub-manager account.
