Google AdWords has a feature called conversion tracking. This allows you to track the success of your ads and optimize them accordingly. It’s an essential tool for any advertiser who wants to maximize their return on investment (ROI).


A conversion can be a specific customer action that you've defined as valuable to your business, such as an online purchase or phone call. Conversion tracking shows you what happens after a customer interacts with your ads -- whether they purchased a product, signed up for your newsletter, and called your business.


In this article, we will show you how to set up conversion tracking in Google AdWords action in workflows so that you can start optimizing your campaigns.


Note before getting started [How to setup Google Ad Reporting]
