    Question googleadservices.com Any Ideas what this is?
    Hi All

    Any one have any idea what googleadservices.com is used for?

    I'm seeing it come up a lot on Links like this one

    Code:
    http://www.creditcardguide.com/go/to.php?d=/citi/drivers-edge/link
    Please note : the above is a live and tracking affiliate link (in case you were wondering) but not one of our clients.

    Thanks

    Chris

    The Adwords Advisor said:
    This is not an area of towering expertise for me, but I'm close to certain that when you see 'googleadservices.com' in your logs, you are looking at a click from an AdWords ad which occurred on Google.com, and not on a partner site.

    Clicks coming from Content partners will show googlesyndication.com.

    And in the other thread it was being asked about and someone said:
    "I know that's the domain they are using for the tracking image used with the new Conversion/ROI measurement service they recently launched."

    Someone else said:
    "That seems to be a tracking URL for email campaigns. It's basically like serving up a 1x1 pixel to track how many people viewed an email. I'm betting someone is running AdSense in their newsletter."

    And stuff from Google:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...22&btnG=Search

    Hmmm, I'm seeing it as part of a redirect from the URL I coded in above, going through some of these Credit Card links I see some serious weird stuff in the URL loading and referrals. That one goes Goog - CJ - BridgeTrack (Citi Bank) , source code shows everything being pulled by JS, I've others that have Overture, MSN and others in them.

    Stretching my imagination to work out what they achieve.

    Looks like conversion tracking yes, but why I have no idea as the above is not a google link...I think ....

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    var google_conversion_id = 1071612830;
    var google_conversion_language = "en_US";
    var google_conversion_format = "1";
    var google_conversion_color = "FFFFFF";
    if (1) {
      var google_conversion_value = 1;
    }
    var google_conversion_label = "PageView";
    //-->
    </script>
    <script language="JavaScript" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js">
    </script>
    <noscript>
    <img height=1 width=1 border=0 src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion/1071612830/?value=1&label=PageView&script=0">
    </noscript>

    It is the code for adwords tracking, looks like they used it in a non google context --- possibly another keywordcampaign that they wanted to compare with adwords all on the same screen?

    BTW, the other portion of the code is usually on the TY page (you'll see the google logo with adwords tracker or syndication below it).
    Continued Success,

    Thanks Haiko yea it's a funny use that's for sure, I have a feeling you might be right that they are using it for some form of conversion analysis / comparison tool or to use to check click throughs to reported clicks form the CC firms...
