Each conversion action you track probably has a different value for your business. Some may be your main goals, while others may be helpful to track, but you don’t want to adjust your bids to achieve them. Still, looking at all of your conversions together provides a broader view of how your business is doing.
The “All conversions” column gives you a view of all the conversions that your Google Ads campaigns drive. This column includes any conversion actions that you've chosen not to include in your main "Conversions" column.
The "All conversions" column provides a flexible way to report on which campaigns, ads, and keywords are leading to valuable actions without requiring you to include those actions in your main “Conversions” column which is used by Smart bidding. You can add the “All conversions” column to any of your reports and segment by a variety of dimensions to evaluate your Google Ads performance.
- Segment your "All conversions" column by conversion action to see how many conversions you got associated with each action regardless of if that action was included in the main "Conversions" column.
- Segment your "All conversions"column by device type to optimize your mobile bids.
- Segment your "All conversions" column by conversion source to see which sources your conversions are coming from, for example, how many store visit conversions you reported. This can help you make better decisions about allocating resources between your online and offline budgets.
To find the “All conversions” column, sign in to your Google Ads account, then follow these instructions:
- Click any of the links in the page menu on the left (Campaigns, for example) and look for the “All conv.” column. This can be selected by clicking the Columnsicon above the statistics table.
If you can’t find the “All conv.” column, it might not be showing in your report by default. Learn how to add columns to a report.
To get the full benefit of “All conversions,” record enough conversions in your account to gain meaningful business insights.
How it works
“All conversions” includes the data in your “Conversions” column, conversion actions you’ve chosen not to include in your “Conversions” column, store visits, certain phone calls, and more. These additional conversions can give you a more accurate understanding of how users interact with your business, and this helps you better calculate the effectiveness of your advertising.
What's included in "All conversions"
Read below to learn more about these special conversion sources that can help you make more informed decisions about your online advertising investments.
Primary and secondary conversions
When you set up conversion tracking, you will be selecting primary and secondary conversion actions that support a defined goal:
- Primary actions: These are conversion actions that are reported in the “Conversions” column in your reports and used for bidding as long as the standard goal they are part of is used for bidding.
- Secondary actions: These conversion actions are for observation only. They are used for reporting in the “All conversions” column in your reports, but not for bidding, even if the goal they are included in is used for bidding. The one exception is if the secondary action is part of a custom goal, in which case it’s used for bidding. However, note that store sales direct conversion actions can’t be used for bidding, even if used in a custom goal.
Conversions with "Include in 'Conversions'" unchecked
When setting up or editing a conversion action, you can uncheck the “Include in ‘Conversions’” setting if you don’t want to include those conversions in your main “Conversions” and “Conversion value” columns. Data from these conversion actions will still be included in your “All conversions” column.
You can learn more about this setting in our article on "Include in 'Conversions'".
Calls from tablet and computer users
If you use call assets or call-only ads with Google forwarding numbers, you can count calls as conversions as follows:
- Conversions generated by calls from mobile search ads are counted as standard conversions and included in the Conversions column.
- Calls placed after viewing ads on tablets and computers are included in the "All Conversions" column.
Google forwarding numbers are currently available in these countries.

Phone calls are an important channel for research and purchasing with 70% of mobile searchers reporting using click-to-call functionality to connect with a business directly from the search results. In fact, consumers make more than 40M calls directly from Google ads every month.

How to use it
You can use "All conversions" to inform your bidding.If you’ve chosen not to include certain conversion actions in your "Conversions" column, remember that "All conversions" will also include these additional conversions.
Sorting your data
The "All conversions" column can help you understand the relative contribution to total conversions that mobile, desktop, and tablet have had across your ads.
To see a breakdown of your conversions by the device where an ad click happened, segment your report by Device.
Note that when you segment by device, you'll see cross-device conversions counted for the device where the ad click occurred. For example, if someone clicked an ad on a mobile device, and later converted on a desktop computer, the conversion would be counted under mobile.
Keep in mind:
- Call conversions on the Search Network from both desktop and tablet are included in the "Computer" row. (Call conversions from tablets can't be reported separately.)
- Mobile calls are included in the mobile row.
- Desktop and tablet call conversions are not available at the keyword level.
- Cross-device data for call conversions is only available for Search Network campaigns.
