Where should Google Adwords conversion tracking codes be installed on the contact form page?

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with finding the right place to install Google Adwords conversion tracking codes on my contact form page. Google requires the code to be placed directly above the closing

tag.I know Code Injection is not appropriate in this case, and I tried Code Block as directed here (http://help.squarespace.com/guides/using-the-code-block) and tried every available spot on the page but still cannot find the exact place where the code should be installed.

Does anyone know how I can install the tag just above the closing

tag?

Thank you for your help in advance!

According to my Google adwords specialist it can be installed in the header or footer of the main page. I installed mine in the footer and verified with Google that it was functioning appropriately.

How does it work?

For my definition of conversion, I reckon that once the user send in an email enquiry via form submission, the conversion codes come into play.

On the advice of my adwords specialist, he suggested that I embed the code in the form's post-html submit setting. It's buggy, doesn't seem to record accurately. Anyone can advise on this?

I actually rebuilt my site in squarespace last week and called Google to talk about this again. They had specific instructions for squarespace code injection for Google. If you go to Settings, Advanced, then "Code Injection." They recommend putting in the header from there. Footer works but for whatever reason they now have more specific information in partnership with squarespace for this. I'm not sure what their take is on conversion being email, or if they are tracking all activity on the site with that code.

Won't this just trigger the conversion tracker once someone lands on the homepage or on any other page. It says in the code injection area that putting any code in header or footer section is site wide.

However, putting it in the confirmation page section also doesn't seem to work.

I think you are correct about it triggering a conversion when they simply land on the page, as opposed to completing the form, THEN it triggers.

If you find any solutions that help with form completion (no separate thankyou page URL), please let us know.

Seems I'm not the only one in this position. I'm currently considering Squarespace as my ecomm solution. I'm taking it you're unable to edit the code on the 'thank you/order confirmation' page?

I'd think if you place conversion tracking code on the header/footer you'll be triggering it each time the user visits any page.

I am currently talking to squarespace. They are saying that it will only be fixed when there is more demand for it. I am sending them all the forum links where people are asking this question.

This is a must for anyone doing ecommerce. Although great, I would hold off on squarespace until they remedy this.
