I recently set up a a Google AdWords campaign for a site. I've enable auto tagging so that Google could append it's "gclid" to the URL. All of the conversions happen offline, so I need the gclid to attribute the conversion to the visit.
The problem is that when a visitor comes to the site, the gclid isn't in the format presented in the Google docs. This maybe can be partially attributed to the fact that I'm using Matomo to track site visitors. I'm unsure if the values I'm receiving are in fact "gclid"
Instead of coming in like
www.example.com/?gclid=test123xyz" as the docs suggest, they come in like
test123xyz.safeframe.googlesyndication.com Are these the same? Is the second link even a "gclid"?
