URL option (Search Ads only)

For all ads under the ad account, you can set “Tracking URL”. Learn more about “Tracking Information (Tracking URL and Custom Parameter) ”.


The “Auto-tagging” adds “YCLID” parameter to URL of ads when clicked by internet users. It works when the tagging is “Set”. Some websites do not allow any URL parameter. Therefore an error may occur when “Auto-tagging” is set as “Set” for the website. Please ask the administrator of the website or test the behavior by clicking ads with “Auto-tagging: Set”.

After you check the checkbox “I agree with the Agreement on Handling of Measurement Data and use a measurement tag.”, you will be able to use the script tag for measurement provided by our recommended tool partners. If you don’t use the measurement tag, please don’t check the checkbox above.
