June 29, 2023 New feature allows advertisers to track the exact channel that led to  conversion, improving campaign effectiveness measurement.

Google has unveiled new changes that offer advertisers improved visibility into their conversion performance. This is a game-changer for marketers relying on GA4, as it will enable them to select which channels are eligible for conversion credit when sharing web conversions with Google Ads. This feature encompasses Google paid channels (formerly known as Ads-preferred) as well as paid and organic channels (formerly known as Cross-channel). 

Benefits

With this new feature you now have the ability to discover which channels drive conversions. This data will prove incredibly useful to advertisers as they’ll be able to create new strategies to increase conversions and revenue with more confidence and certainty.

 

How it Works

The default setting for properties creating a link for the first time is Google paid channels.

Google paid channels: Only Google Ads paid channels are eligible to receive conversion credit.

Paid and organic channels: Paid and organic channels are eligible to receive conversion credit, but only credit assigned to Google Ads channels will appear in your Google Ads accounts.

Marketers can see which channels are eligible for credit for each conversion in the Conversions summary, Conversions details and the Campaigns tab in Google Ads. To find this information in Google Analytics go to the Settings page. 

You can change your setting at any time. Just go to Google Analytics, To change your setting to change the setting. In Google Analytics,  Admin > Attribution settings page. Once you change your settings these changes will take effect on all conversions moving forward. 

 

Conclusion

The team at Google is continuing to update Google Analytics 4 with  features that help marketers, agencies and advertisers develop effective strategies that boost conversions and revenue with greater confidence and certainty.
