I am not able to track conversion in Analytics Builder.

I have associated a campaign to an email and also I have used an URL which redirects to the website in the email.

example : <a href="https://www.google.com" conversion="true" ><b>click here</b></a>

I have also installed collect code in my website.

Please let me know if I am missing something.

Please be aware, that Conversion Tracking and Web & Mobile Analytics Collect Code are two different applications with different use cases.

The first one indeed solves your use case, since it keeps track on conversions coming from emails - You can use this data for reporting purposes. It however uses an entirely different tracking script than W&MA. Details about how to configure the tracking can be found in the first link above. Once you have implemented the script, here is how you can test it.

W&MA collects information which is used to populate the W&MA dashboard, and help personalising Einstein Recommendations. The conversions tracked there can be used for recommendation scenarios which take purchase into consideration: e.g. customers who bought X also bought Y. Also details about most purchased products are displayed in W&MA dashboard, based on this data.

If you want to register purchases using W&MA, please implement this code on your order confirmation page:

<script type="text/javascript">       
_etmc.push(["setOrgId", "MID"]);       
_etmc.push(["trackConversion", { "cart": [
{"item" : "INSERT_ITEM", "quantity":  "INSERT_QUANTITY" , "price" : "INSERT_PRICE","unique_id" : "INSERT_UNIQUE_ID" } ,
{"item" : "INSERT_ITEM", "quantity":  "INSERT_QUANTITY" , "price" : "INSERT_PRICE" ,"unique_id" : "INSERT_UNIQUE_ID" }],
// OPTIONAL PARAMETERS
"order_number" : "INSERT_ORDER_NUMBER",
"discount" : "INSERT_DISCOUNT",
"shipping" : "INSERT_SHIPPING",
"details" : { "AttributeName" : "Value" }
// END OPTIONAL PARAMETERS       
}]);      
</script>

I know it can be confusing having two different tracking scripts collecting same information, but the Einstein Recommendation features are based on an acquisition (IGO Digital), made by Exacttarget some years back, and data from here has limited integrations with the rest of the platform. I however hope, my explanation has shed some light on these differences.

  • @LukasLunaw Thank You for explaining the difference between the two. Can you also share how can I populate the email conversion tracking graph in W&MA? I do not know which tracking script to use in order to populate the above-mentioned graph – Advait Jan 11 '19 at 7:35
  • I have edited my answer with the code for conversion tracking using W&MA – Lukas Lunow Jan 11 '19 at 7:57
  • I have implemented all the collect code to get the most searched items products viewed. But I am not able to understand how would Email conversion graph be populated? – Advait Jan 11 '19 at 8:58
  • According to documentation, it will only collect data for identified visitors: help.salesforce.com/… – Lukas Lunow Jan 11 '19 at 9:15

    @ArthurNoort - the single "integration" only pushes the data to data extensions. There is no entry event in JB, you can't use this data in native reporting in SFMC, abandoned cart implementation requires a support ticket, etc. So more gaps than integrations. – Lukas Lunow Apr 30 at 19:31
