Google/Facebook Ads Tracking codeAsked by PhoenixByo on April 01, 2014 at 04:59 PM
As I said on another thread:
I already tried to add HTML to TEXT on the form itself, also on the Thank You Page. But is not staying there after saving it.
¿How can I add this tracking codes to the form itself and to the Thank You Page?
)The steps described in the link of the previous thread dont work).
Unfortunately, that method will not work anymore. It is because adding other scripts into the Thank you page was disabled already. This is due to security purposes and to avoid script injection into the form.
The best way to do this now is by using the form's source code embed and just add your tracking code within the source code scripts.
Or you can also just used the existing widgets that does this. Check them here
This one in particular is mostly used
along with Google analytics
Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
Do these methods really work for the conversion tracking? My understanding of how the conversion tracking works is that an event occurs when a form is submitted. A conversion is counted when the form is submitted (either when the button is pushed or when the thank you page is shown).
If I place the google analytics code into the form as you suggest, then that only tells me how many times the form has been viewed but not how many forms have been submitted (i.e. conversions).
I have not installed any of the widgets. Do any of them actually measure the source of a visit and connect it to a conversion? This is what I want to see as I'm trying to measure how much of my advertising dollars as well as from which source are resulting in conversions.
Thanks for the help with this.
Best regards, JR
You are right, the "Google Analytics" widget will give you the tracing on how many times people have viewed the form. But if you take a look at the "Formisimo Analytics", it seems to be tracking the form visits and the conversion as well. It seems that ask you to copy some URL on the thank you page as well and that is how they track the conversions as well. Please sign up a free account with them and see how it works: http://www.formisimo.com/features
If you want to use your own code to track conversions, you may have to create your own thank you page where you can add the required codes. You can use your thank you page URL in the Custom thank you URL of your form. The following guide should help you: http://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page
Hope this helps.
