CallRail offers two methods to report calls as conversions to Google AdWords. Our recommended method is to use our automatic integration via Google Analytics.
As an alternative, we offer AdWords Manual Conversion Import to be used in situations where Google Analytics is not installed or where Google Analytics is not linked to the Google AdWords account. CallRail's AdWords Manual Conversion Import reports conversions for calls that included an AdWords click (gclid) placed within the past 90 days.
