Different ways to track conversions

When you run ads with Google Ads, you may want to see whether clicks on your ad led a customer to take a certain action, such as a purchase on your website, calling your business or downloading an app.

The first step in tracking conversions is choosing what you want to track.

Advanced tip: Track multiple kinds of conversions

Do you want to track multiple kinds of conversions from the list above? Just set up a different conversion action for each type of conversion you want to track. For example, you can set up one conversion action to track purchases on your website, and another to track calls from your ads.

You can also set up multiple conversion actions for each conversion source. For example, let's say that you want to track two different actions on your website: purchases and newsletter sign-ups. You’d set up two conversion actions: one for the purchases and one for sign-ups.

If you’re tracking multiple conversion actions, you might want to use the “Include in ‘Conversions’” setting to choose which conversions to include in your “Conversions” reporting column. Find out more
