Coversion Rate Code for Clicks

Google provides some javascript code to put on a page to help track conversions from advertisements placed with them through their Adwords program. I would like to track any clicks on links on my directory that were produced by a Google advertisement, but I'm not sure how the javascript can be utilized to record clicks on links using Links SQL. Does anyone know a way to do this? I tried to place the javascript code on jump.cgi, but that caused an internal server error.

Basically, I just want to see which Google ads are actually producing users who are coming to my directory and then actively clicking on my links.

What kind of javascript do they provide? It would basically need to be changed to a real URL, instead of <script>...</script> sort of stuff.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your post. I'm not exactly sure how to change the script to a real url. An example of the code they provide is below. Somehow that script needs to get activated to track the success of an ad. So I somehow need the javascript to get activated when jump.cgi or Jump.pm are activated when a link is clicked on. Is this possible somehow?


<!-- Google Conversion Code -->
<script language="JavaScript">
google_conversion_id = 198979235;
google_conversion_language = "en_US";
<script language="JavaScript" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js">
<a href="http://services.google.com/sitestats/en_US.html" target=_blank>
