Once the integration is set and your web forms are live, you can easily track your Google Ads information inside Zoho CRM. Within Zoho CRM, you can track the Google Ads data in a few places.
By having Google Ads data in Zoho CRM, you can:
For every ad click, Google generates a Google Click ID (GCLID). This ID processes information related to the campaign, keyword, adgroup, etc. of the Ad. So how is this data captured within Zoho CRM?
We know that when an ad is clicked, GCLID is created. If the person fills the web form that the ad is connected to, then both the GCLID and the web form details are pushed to Zoho CRM database. At this point, the leads/contacts are created with the details provided in the form but the details from the GCLID is not mapped to these leads/contacts.
Google Ads requires 4-6 hours after the ad click to process the details of the click. So every 48-72 hours, the GCLIDs generated on ad click and the leads added in CRM are mapped and only then the Google Ads data is added to the respective records in Zoho CRM.
When your prospective customer clicks your Ad and submits the web form, a new lead/contact is created in Zoho CRM with the lead/contact information. Records generated this way will have the GCLID value in the Google Ads Information section. You can view the records generated via Google Ads in the standard list view - Google Ads Conversion Export. You can also create custom list view to filter out specific records. See Also: Manage List Views
Lead/Contact added in Zoho CRM via Google Ads will have details captured by GCLID. These include Click Type, Ad Network, Keyword, Device Type, etc. This data is updated in the Google Ads Information section approximately 48-72 hours from the record creation time.
On lead conversion, the Google Ads data will be transferred to the newly created contact and potentials. Also, if another potential is created, associated for the contact, the same Google Ads details will be pushed to the new potential too.

Once the integration is set up, a new tab namely Google Ads is added.
