Just read you post above on this:
OK...I will post results in a few days. One more thing...the url we use for our ad should be [mysite.com...] correct? There is no code needed to make analytics report properly correct?
The code for the analytics report to sing for you is to extensive to talk about here.. but there are tons of youtube videos on it and at google adwords free training.... you need to really understand it to make it work best for you.
But in regard to url for the is [mysite.com...]
There is two major concerns here...
Two different URLs are used...
1. Display URL - the one everyone sees on the ad.
2. Destination URL - the one that sends you to the landing page.
Both URLS need to have the domain name but they do not need to be the same exact url... for example..
IF my ad is "Virginia Beach Real Estate"
Then its critical that:
1. display url = mydomain.com/VirginiaBeach/
2. Dest url = mydomain.com/somesubdir/virginia-beach-homes-for-sale.html
And my ad must talk about Virginia Beach Real Estate, my url must look like VABE real estate and my landing page better be full of color photos of VABE homes along with the h1 tag sporting VABE real estate and the description meta talks VABE real estate and my keywords meta talks about VABE real estate... and the word Vabe Real estate better be sparsely on the page but not too much and it should also have VABE real estate at the bottom of the page... and on and on and on..... LOL... and all of these details are so very important to separate the men from the boys...
