---- Is Google Adwords Conversion Giving You Trouble?
thebestever - 2:49 am on Aug 3, 2012 (gmt 0)
Wow, gone are the days of yesteryear when you used to be able to track conversions easily in Google Adwords.
Or are they?
All I know is I want conversion tracking for the past year on my site, I just opened up my 6th support ticket because I keep getting incomplete answers about how to get it working. I've been going through this for a year. It seems like it would be easy:
a) I have standard Wordpress, no customization b) Wordpress is probably the most common installation in the world c) I have Bluehost, one of the largest most common hosts d) I am a former GAP and web programmer
I just get stories like "I have to have a meeting with my technical team" or "can you give us all the website URLS again (after you reference all previous tickets)."
I get that Wordpress is somehow changing the code, but isn't this a known issue somehow? Or isn't there some kind of easy plugin or something.
The last answer I got was "check with your host." There is nothing to check, it's just Wordpress.
They don't even mention Wordpress on their FAQ. Sometimes it seems like they don't want you to know the conversion data.
Anyone else having trouble?
I'd really like to get this resolved.
What my inbox looks like...this doesn't count all the time on the phone, could be just one phone call?
