Validate your AdWords conversion tracking tag with Google Tag Assistant


Validating your AdWords conversion tags is
a simple way to make sure that your tags are on your website and working correctly. In this video we’ll show you how to use
Google Tag Assistant to validate that your tags are correctly implemented. Google Tag Assistant can help you in two ways Firstly, it can show you what tags are on
the page you are looking at Secondly it will let you know if those tags
are working correctly If you’ve not already done so, install Google
Tag Assistant in your Google Chrome browser. If you are not using Google Chrome or you
prefer a more manual approach, you can visit our developers site for different approaches When you’re ready, load your website. When Google Tag Assistant detects a tag on
the page you’re currently looking at it will change colour and show the count of the
number of tags it has found on the page. Lets start by looking at an example product
page that would have the AdWords Conversion tag on it. Click on the Tag Assistant button to see a
list of the tags it has found. Take a moment to look at the colour of the
button. Red means there are critical implementation
problems with the tag Yellow means that are minor implementation
problems Blue means that your implementation is ok,
but it could be improved, and Green means that your tag is perfect. Click on the tag again to view more details. If you have any warnings or errors listed,
click on them to see more information about what you can do to fix or improve your tags. You can also use Google Tag Assistant to check
your other Google tags, like Google Analytics. Now that you know how to validate your AdWords
conversion tag, go to the chrome store and install Tag Assistant to validate your tags
today. Thanks for watching! Make sure to subscribe

  • typical google crap

  • Very helpful. One question: Can I manually change the conversion value? I've put in a lot of tags with no conversion value, and now I want to give the action a value. On the adwords site, under conversion actions, I see no option for editing the conversion.

  • This whole tag manager thing is madness, like lots of Google Services, getting more and more complex. Sure, everyone at Google are apparently geniuses. Now they seem to expect that each of their users is a genius as well. Why make like life easy for users? Why add the links that are mentioned in the video to the description? Kindness could be one reason. For starters.

  • Thx u tttttuuuuu much! Only u explained what colors mean)
