In this article, we will show you how to set up Google AdWords Conversion Tracking code to track monthly sales and ad conversions. In this article, we assume that you already have a Google AdWords account and know how to use it.

How to set up conversion tracking in Google AdWords:

1. Log into your Google AdWords account. Click on Tools and Analysis and then click on Conversions

2. Click the New Conversion button.

3. Enter the name of the conversion you would like to track in your  and select where your customers will complete the conversion (such as your 'Thank You' page). Click Save and continue.

4. On the next page, in the Conversion category field, choose the category that best applies to your conversion, e.g. if you want to track sales, you need to choose ‘Purchase/Sale’ in the drop-down menu. Below the Conversion category field, you can configure page security level and conversion value in the drop-down menus. Also, in the Tracking indicator field, choose whether you want to let your customers know that you're using conversion tracking by putting a Google Sites Stats notification on the page. Click Save and Continue.


5. Within the Generate code page, you get 2 options: to add the code to the site yourself by choosing ‘I make changes to the code’ or let someone else add the code by clicking ‘Someone else makes changes to the code’. If you check the first option, you will notice a new field with the code.
