I think that your "problem" is different type of attribution. Google Analytics uses last-click attribution, AdWords prefers first-click. So... if your client ever clicked an campaign ad created in AdWords and make a transaction in another session, it will be counted in AdWords as "adwords conversion". But in Google Analytics it will be conversion from that ...

I find that the Goals system in Analytics is not as reliable as we wanted. Same thing happen to other features and that is mainly because of the source of the tracking used by Google: Javascript.

Your landing URL from your campaign is not ideal for Google Analytics tracking. I would recommend using the Google Analytics URL builder to add parameters to the URL. Specifically source=CPC would become utm_source=CPC. Google Analytics also likes it when you have other fields like the campaign name. When this tracking is in place, your campaign ...

JSFiddle does not offer Google Analytics tracking as a feature, but it can be done. Create a .js file with your Google Analytics tracking code and save this to a publicly accessible web hosting location. Then add your .js file as an external resource to all of your JSFiddles. Sadly this does need to be done to each Fiddle, BUT it keeps your code out of ...

I'm honestly not sure why your implementation isn't working properly, but just wonder if its more to do with Google Analytics having changed how they work to now use what they call Universal Analytics, where instead of calling ga.js scripts now call analytics.js and Dimensions and Metrics have to be pre-configured in Google Analytics and assigned a numerical ...
