Create a Google Reengagement Campaign


The following document defines the process for creating a Google Adwords reengagment campaign.


Create a Reengagement Tracker

NOTE: For Google to receive post-install event information, a re-engagement tracker must be created for each event individually that you wish to pass to Google. If attribution does not need to be tracked, ensure that the proper options are configured in the postback configuration for Google Adwords.

 

BEST PRACTICES: If you do not wish for post install events to be claimed by Google, be sure to exclude them from your bid strategy when configuration your conversion events in Google.

 

  1. Log in to Kochava.
  2. Select the desired Account and App.
  3. If not already created, create a new Google campaign. For more information about creating campaigns, refer to our Google Integration support documentation.
  4.  

    BEST PRACTICES: In order to help with campaign organization, it is recommended that a segment be created for reengagement.

Create a Reengagement Postback

BEST PRACTICES: Google strongly suggests that marketers enable any and all post-install events which are being being tracked by Kochava. Any event that is configured will send ‘All’ occurrences of the event to Google.

BEST PRACTICES: Google strongly suggests the instrumentation of post-install events to track sessions as well as ‘deeplink’ events.

BEST PRACTICES: If the Event Name field is left empty, the original event name received from the app will be used. After the Custom Event may be used for any post-install events that do not correspond to one of Google’s pre-defined App Event Types.

 

Post-install events sent to Google must be designated with the corresponding Google App Event Type using the drop down menu within the Partner Configuration UI. Google has eight event types to select:

  • Custom
  • Session Start
  • In_App Purchase
  • View Item List
  • View Item
  • View Search Results
  • Add to Cart
  • eCommerce Purchase

NOTE: The ‘Custom’ event may be used for any post-install events that do not correspond to one of Google’s pre-defined App Event Types.

Google Universal App Campaign for Engagement Setup

For Google to track UACe campaigns, Google requires the advertiser to have a _deeplink event that has the deeplink listener included in that call. Once this is done correctly, Kochava will parse out the GCLID from the _deeplink event metadata and pass it on to Google. The GCLID is a parameter that is appended to the end of a deeplink URI and helps Google optimize the UACe campaigns.

 

WARNING: Before a Google UACe campaign can be initiated, and Kochava can receive the Google Click ID (GCLID) developers will first need to instrument the standard _Deeplink event in the Kochava SDK or through Server-to-Server. When instrumented to specification, the _Deeplink event will include the GCLID in the URI field of the event payload. For details about deeplinking, refer to our Android – Using the SDK or iOS – Using the SDK documentation.
