Your customer ID is a unique number used to identify your Google Ads account. You can also use this number to connect your account with other Google products, such as Google Analytics or Business Profile. This article will show you how to locate your customer ID.

Tips

  • Have your customer ID ready when you contact Google Ads customer support.
  • Only share your ID with people you trust, because anyone who has it may be able to use it to access your Google Ads information.
  • Newly created customer IDs take a few minutes to register in our system.

Instructions

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Find “Customer ID” in the top right-hand corner.

how to find google ads customer ID


Please send us your customer ID  and we can send an account access request.

Users with administrative access to the invited account, or access to a linked manager account that has administrative ownership of that account, can accept your request. You can find, accept or decline linking requests using the following steps:

 

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads manager account.
  2. Click the Tools and settings icon, then under ‘Setup’, click Access and security.
  3. Select the Managers tab. Under ‘Link request’, you’ll find a list of manager accounts that have requested to link to your account.

Under ‘Actions’, click Accept.

Sometimes, Google may reject an ad because of their Event Tickets Sale Policy. It can easily get approved if you provide any of the following:

 

  • a contract or legal documentation indicating affiliation or partnership between the advertiser’s company and the event-associated group
    Or
  • a letter on company letterhead signed by an attorney or an executive at the advertiser’s company, attesting to having affiliation or of partnership with the event-associated group

 

In some cases, Google asks for a contract between your organisation and the venue, which will need to be provided upon request.

 

Alternatively, you may fill this application form and, in that case, there will be no need to send the documentation to Milestone for us to organise with Google.

There are two parts of the Google Conversion Tag:

Global site tag to be placed in the header of the whole website as a javascript code, if not already placed. 

 

Step 3.0. Adding Event Snippet as a Javascript code to the header of the page(s) where it is needed

Event snippet placement is dependent on how the conversion is recorded, whether it is through the page load method, for example, a thank you page OR it can be on a button click, for example, contact form submit button.

 

Step 3.1. Event Snippet for Page Load

Add the snippet to the page that a customer reaches after completing a conversion

 

Copy the snippet from the Google Conversion Tag and paste it in between the <head></head> tags of the page(s) that you’d like to track, right after the global site tag

</script>

 

3.2.2. How to call gtag_report_conversion for a text link?

This code shows you how to add click tracking functionality to a link using the <a> tag. In the code below, replace ‘http://example.com/your-link’ with the destination URL of your link or ‘800-123-4567’ with the phone number on your website and ‘Download now!’ or ‘Call now!’ with your link text. The code that should be added to the link tag is highlighted in yellow.

<a onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘http://example.com/your-link’);”

href=”http://example.com/your-link”>Download now!</a>

or

<a onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘tel:800-123-4567’);” href=”tel:800-123-4567″>Call now!</a>

 

3.2.3. How to call gtag_report_conversion for a button?

This code shows you how to add click tracking functionality to a button using the <button> tag. In the code below, replace “http://example.com/your-link” with the destination URL of your link or “800-123-4567” with the phone number on your website.

 

<button onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘http://example.com/your-link’)”>Submit</button>

or

<button onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘tel:800-123-4567’)”>Call now!</button>

 

3.2.4. How to call gtag_report_conversion for a button image?

In the code below, replace ‘download_button.gif’ with your button image, replace the width and height with your button’s parameters and replace ‘http://example.com/your-link’ with the URL for your link or ‘800-123-4567’ with the phone number on your website.


<img src=”download_button.gif” alt=”Download Whitepaper”

        width=”32″ height=”32″

        onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘http://example.com/your-link’)” />

or

<img src=”call_button.gif” alt=”Call now!”

        width=”32″ height=”32″

        onclick=”return gtag_report_conversion(‘tel:800-123-4567’)” />  

 

For conversion tracking to work, you’ll need to add both the event snippet and the appropriate onclick code from one of the examples above to the page that has the link or button. This tells Google Ads to record a conversion only when a customer clicks on the link or button.

 

Important

Your website must call the ‘gtag_report_conversion’ function when someone clicks on the link, button or button image, and pass your website or telephone link (e.g. “http://example.com/your-link”, ‘tel:800-123-4567’) as the parameter value.
