Edit Keyword Tracking Sources

With keyword-level tracking, you can track a visitor's session on your website. If you need to change the type of visitors your keyword pool is tracking after you've activated your pool, you can do so on the number configuration page. This allows you to update or change the visitors you'd like to track on your website for an existing keyword tracking pool.

Use this article to learn how to:

  • Update your keyword pool to track standard sources
  • Change your keyword pool to track specific types of website visitors
  • Exclude certain types of visitors from seeing a keyword pool number when they visit your website

Getting Started

There are two different categories of tracking for keyword tracking pools:

  • Standard tracking: Choose specific and pre-populated sources you'd like to track. This includes all website visitors, AdWords visitors, and all visitors except direct and organic visitors.
     
  • Customized Tracking: Configure specific referring sources to include or exclude from your keyword pool. Set your own standards, including landing pages and referring pages.

Once you've saved your settings, your keyword pool will immediately begin tracking the new sources you've selected. There's no downtime on the pool once you've updated it, and you won't have to make any changes to the dynamic number insertion script installed on your website.

Track Standard Sources

  1. Choose the company whose keyword tracking pool you'd like to update.



  2. Click Numbers at the top of the page.

    • Choose Referring Page to track visitors from a specific website, like yelp.com.
    • Choose All Except Direct to track all website visitors except for those who enter your website URL and navigate to your site directly.
