How do I track visitors referred by Google AdWords?

Follow

With Mouseflow, it's easy to control which visitors get recorded. For example, you can record visitors who find your website through Google AdWords.

To only track visits from Google AdWords, we can check for the "gclid" (Google Click ID). This integration makes use of some extra JavaScript. Just replace your tracking code with the snippet below.

Example

<script type="text/javascript">
var Cookie = { set: function(name, value, days) { var domain, domainParts, date, expires, host; if (days) { date = new Date(); date.setTime(date.getTime()+(days*24*60*60*1000)); expires = "; expires="+date.toGMTString(); } else { expires = ""; } host = location.host; if (host.split('.').length === 1) { document.cookie = name+"="+value+expires+"; path=/"; } else { domainParts = host.split('.'); domainParts.shift(); domain = '.'+domainParts.join('.'); document.cookie = name+"="+value+expires+"; path=/; domain="+domain;
if (Cookie.get(name) == null || Cookie.get(name) != value) { domain = '.'+host; document.cookie = name+"="+value+expires+"; path=/; domain="+domain; } } }, get: function(name) { var nameEQ = name + "="; var ca = document.cookie.split(';'); for (var i=0; i < ca.length; i++) { var c = ca[i]; while (c.charAt(0)==' ') { c = c.substring(1,c.length); } if (c.indexOf(nameEQ) == 0) return c.substring(nameEQ.length,c.length); } return null; }, erase: function(name) { Cookie.set(name, '', -1); } };

if (window.location.href.indexOf('gclid') > -1) { Cookie.set('mf_record_user', 1, 10); }

if (Cookie.get('mf_record_user')) {

// mouseflow tracking code

 var _mfq = _mfq || [];
 (function() {
    var mf = document.createElement("script"); mf.type = "text/javascript"; mf.async = true;
    mf.src = "//cdn.mouseflow.com/projects/your-website-id.js";
    document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(mf);
 })();
}

</script>

 

Each new visit will only be captured if it originates from Google AdWords (with a "gclid" URL parameter).
