WooCommerce Google Ads Dynamic Remarketing

Omschrijving

Do you have a WooCommerce shop and want to run dynamic remarketing campaigns with Google Ads? This plugin will insert the customized remarketing pixel on all your shop pages. Google Ads will then be able to collect customer behaviour data (product viewers, buyers, order value, cart abandoners, etc). Based on this data you will be able to run targeted remarketing campaigns.

Requirements

  • WooCommerce
  • WooCommerce Google Product Feed plugin or something similar to upload the products to the Google Merchant Center
  • Google Merchant Center Account with all products uploaded
  • Google Ads account with a configured remarketing tag

Highlights of this plugin

  • Very easy to install
  • Very accurate. Several methods have been build in to avoid tracking of shop managers, deduplication of purchases, etc.

Cookie Consent Management

The plugin uses data from several Cookie Consent Management plugins to avoid injecting the tracking pixel, in case a visitor doesn’t want to be tracked by third party pixels.

It works with the following Cookie Consent Management plugins:

It is also possible for developers of Cookie Consent Management plugins to deactivate our plugin with a filter, in case a visitor opts out of third party pixel tracking. Simply use the following code:

add_filter( 'wgdr_third_party_cookie_prevention', '__return_true' );

Installation support

Installing the plugin is pretty simple. Just activate it and enter the conversion ID and if necessary the product prefix.

If you also need to to set up the Google Merchant Center first the entire setup becomes more complex. If you would like us to do the setup for you please contact us for an offer: support@wolfundbaer.ch

Installatie

  1. Upload the WGDR plugin directory into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. De plugin activeren via het ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Get the Google Ads conversion ID and the conversion label. You will find both values in the Google Ads remarketing tag. Get the conversion ID (ignore the conversion label)
  4. In the WordpPress admin panel go to WooCommerce and then into the ‘Google Ads Dynamic Retargeting’ menu. Please enter the conversion ID and the conversion label into their respective fields.
  5. Also add the Google Merchant Center prefix which is “woocommerce_gpf_” if you use the Google Product Feed plugin to upload your products the the Google Merchant Center.

FAQ

Why does Google Ads report an error?

Give Google Ads time to pick up the code. It can take up to 48 hours.

How do I check if the plugin is working properly?

Download the Google Tag Assistant browser plugin. It is a powerful tool to validate all Google tags on your pages. Bear in mind that validating the Merchant Center Feed only works on product pages.

The plugin messes up my theme. What is happening?

It has been reported in several occasions that minifaction plugins mess up the Javascript code which lead to errors in the theme. The Javascript code for the tracking needs to be placed exactly as Google requires it. To solve this issue turn off the minification plugin.

Does the plugin support variations?

Yes.

The tracking pixel matches regular feeds and also feeds with variations, as long as the variations are uploaded with the correct item_group_id (which is basically the id of the parent product): Dynamic Remarketing with Group ID

And will the dynamic ad show exactly the variations the visitor has visited? And the answer to that is not necessarily. But, don’t worry about specific variations too much. Even if the visitor is only being served the parent product he has visited (not the variation), the dynamic banner will lead to a much higher click-through-rate already.

Also look at this answer in the Google Google Ads Community (coming from a Google developer): Dynamic Remarketing Tag and Variations

I am getting following error: “We haven’t detected the Google Analytics remarketing functionality on your website.” What can I do?

This plugin doesn’t support Google Analytics Remarketing, only Google Google Ads Remarketing (as the plugin name says).

I am getting following error: “There are problems with some of your custom parameters for Retail.” What can I do?

Give Google Ads time to pick up the code. It can take up to 48 hours.

I am getting following error: “Only 20 of 50 page visits that have passed an ID (or 40%) match IDs in your Merchant Center feed.” What can I do?

It indicates that not all products have been uploaded to the Google Merchant Center. As long as you don’t upload all of them you will see this error.

Also it could be that you haven’t waited the 48 hours time period until Google Ads has processed everything properly.

Where can I report a bug or suggest improvements?

Please report your bugs and support requests in the support forum for this plugin: Plugin Support Forum

We will need some data to be able to help you.

  • Website address
  • WordPress-versie
  • WooCommerce version
  • WooCommerce theme and version of the theme
  • The Google Ads remarketing tags conversion ID and conversion label

(Most of these information is publicly viewable on your webpage. If you still want to keep it private don’t hesitate to send us a support request to support@wolfundbaer.ch)

Why does Google Ads report that the ecomm_prodid are not found?
  • After installation wait a few days. It can take that long until all is processed correctly.
  • You need the prefix only if you use the WooThemes Google Product Feed plugin.
  • Check if you really have loaded all products into the feed and into the Google Merchant Center.

I installed this plugin on May 2019. Some days later I get a Google Search Console alert that my site has indexing issues. I didn't take the warning seriously. Its only after my site traffic plummeted down to nearly 90% that i started investigating the issue. The main issue is that Google was telling my site source code had the meta tag "noindex" inserted into it. What!!? This was weired coz who would want their site not to be indexed? I would never do this deliberately. My site lost income because of this loss of traffic. I search Google and notice my site pages are missing from its index..Poof! Completely gone!! At a loss of how this could be possible I reached out to the Google forums and asked for help from the experts. Its then that they told me that at the footer of my site there was some messed up Google Ads remarketing code that was inserting the "noindex" meta tag!! I logged in to the site and disable many of the plugins and started activating them one by one..it was then that i noticed that the WooCommerce Google Ads Dynamic Remarketing plugin was the one doing this.. I promptly disable it and submitted my site for reindexing into Google. Because of this i pray my site rankings will not be affected going ahead. This plugin really messed up my site traffic and income.

When I checked code in the source code I found that this plugin is triggering old legacy code not the Gtag one. For example I want like this. <script> gtag('event', 'page_view', { 'send_to': 'AW-974177318', 'ecomm_pagetype': 'replace with value', 'ecomm_prodid': 'replace with value', 'ecomm_totalvalue': 'replace with value' }); </script>

Started using this plugin on our woocommerce site a few weeks ago. Seems we initially had it slightly misconfigured, yet it still produced some usable results. Then we reached out for support (of a FREE plugin!) and got several helpful responses within hours. That's exceptional. Now that the plugin is setup correctly, it's working great and we're happier than ever. Keep up the great work, plugin author and support team over at Wolf+Bär Agency!
