Google Shows Ad Conversions Without Clicks
The Google AdWords Blog announced that Google is now showing you conversions, within the AdWords console, for when someone sees your ad but does not click on your ad, but yet, still buys within 30 days after seeing your ad. Got all of that? No? Okay, let me give you a fictional example.
I run a flower shop online and I use AdSense to promote my business. You visit a blog that shows my ad about my flowers. You see the ad, but decide not to click on it. Then a day or two later, you remember my site, go to it, and buy flowers for your favorite blogger. Google will now show me that you saw my ad, didn’t click on it, but bought from my site within 30 days after seeing my ad.
Google calls this report, “View-through Conversions” and has added this column to your AdWords report. Here is a screen shot of the help tip on the AdWords report:
