Can you track this?

I was looking into dayparting but I don't want to miss out on any traffic that converts. So is there anyway to see the exact hour a conversion is made through Google AdWords or Google Analytics?

Nope, conversions are reported by day currently, not by hour they occur. So the data reported isn't granular enough to use your reports from adwords to plan your dayparting strategy.

I posted about it here and submitted the problem to my rep. Who knows when they mau address it.

In the meantime, you should have the option to review your sales via your internal tracking mechanisms - not as handy as adwords, but the way to do it right now.

You can get some data from Google Analytics. However, keep in mind that you are likely getting visitors from all 4 US time zones (not to mention international users).

Note that you CAN do this with MS Adcenter...

G, let us know that hourly conversion data is coming in reporting?

It'll help us all maximize our spend if we're not guessing about what times of day are less than ideal for us.
