Introduction


With the help of SegmentStream, you can fully integrate the Google Adwords Dynamic Remarketing Module with your site.

Google integration guide

To configure the Adwords integration:

  1. Log in to the segmentstream.com website and go to the integration management panel
  2. Go to the “Integration” tab and click on the block with the Adwords logo.
  3. In the opened panel - configure the integration.
    You can read more details about the settings below.

Required events


For the correct operation of the Adwords integration you must configure the filling of certain events in the digitalData.events array. The list of events is as follows:

Required events

It is also necessary to configure the filling of certain variables of the digitalData object. A list of some variables is given below:

  • page.type
  • product - the product object occurs in several places of the digitalData object: directly in digitalData.product, in the items and lineItems arrays of the listing, cart and transaction objects.
  • listing, cart, transaction objects
  • and others

We strongly recommend that you configure the filling of all variables in the digitalData object (not just those described above), in accordance with the documentation.

Conversion ID


You can find the conversion tracking ID in the Google Adwords system interface.

Business type


The code for dynamic Google Ad Remarketing depends on the type of activity selected in the campaign settings. It is necessary in the SegmentStream interface to choose the same type as in the Google Ads API.

For example, if you select the “Retail” type in Google Ads, you must also select “Retail” in the SegmentStream interface.

If the necessary type of activity is missing in the SegmentStream interface - contact support at [email protected]

Product feed has grouped products


Google Ads receives information about products placed on the site through an XML feed. With a certain interval, the Google robot downloads a feed from your server. This feed contains information about all products on the site.

Learn more about the feed format.

For correct integration, Google should also receive information about the interaction of users with products on the site - views, additions to the shopping cart, purchases, etc. The system must correctly match what it sees in the incoming events with the XML feed.

More about product groups

-If you use grouping of goods using the item_group_id xml-feed parameter - be sure to activate this setting.

In this case, the product id from your XML feed must match the product.skuCode of the digitalData object. Be sure to fill product.skuCode and product.id in each product.

-If you do NOT use grouping of goods using the item_group_id xml-feed parameter - do not activate this setting.

In this case, the product id from your XML feed must match the product.id of the digitalData object.

Checking the correctness of the integration setup


After configuring the integration in the SegmentStream interface, but before PUBLICATION - go to the site in test_mode, go through the conversion funnel and check for errors. If there are no errors - publish the current version.
