Phone Conversion Number

↑ Back to top

Google Ads allows to track calls to a phone number on a website. It does this by automatically swapping the real phone number with a Google number which will redirect the call to the real phone number.

You can test the phone swapping by appending the following URL parameter on one of the pages where your phone number appears: #google-wcc-debug

The URL would then look like this: https://example.com/#google-wcc-debug

INFO

You’ll find more info about phone call conversion tracking on the Google support pages here.

Google Ads Conversion Adjustments allow you to restate or retract conversions after they’ve been sent to Google Ads. This is particularly useful when orders get canceled, partially and fully refunded after the initial purchase.

The Pixel Manager generates a CSV file with all necessary data that can be consumed by Google Ads every night.

Additional Info​

↑ Back to top
  • The Pixel Manager generates a list of adjustments that are between 2 and 4 days old. This is Google’s recommended way how to upload conversion adjustments. The reason why it should not generate a list of adjustments right after they happen is the following: Google Ads can take up to 24 hours to process the initial purchase conversions. So if we upload conversion adjustments before Google Ads processes the initial conversions, Google Ads would throw an error.
  • If Google Ads processes conversion adjustments for conversions that were not triggered by Google Ads, you will see the error message: “This conversion does not exist. Double-check all the parameters.” This error message can be safely ignored.The following is a report of what a regular conversion adjustments upload looks like:Accept customer data terms
