I run an affiliate business and am unable to put the AdWords conversion tracking pixel on my third-party partner's thankyou pages (due to their concerns over the perception of double-serving).

Essentially, I'm trying to tell the AdWords conversion tracking service to log a conversion, but I can't load anything (script or pixel) onto my partner's thankyou page.... so I'm wondering if something like this might work:

- visitor hits the thankyou page and triggers my own tracking pixel (which they did let me put there - just wouldn't let me use the AdWords one)
- pixel fires, hits conversion.php on my webserver
- conversion.php contains a PHP 'header' command that calls the noscript URL from the Google AdWords conversion tracking pixel

Is there any way to do this? I worry that I may be SOL.
