If you visit some of our pages and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that someone has clicked on the ad and hence has been redirected to our site. Each AdWords client has a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords clients. The information gathered using conversion cookies helps to generate conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted in to conversion tracking. AdWords clients can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were directed to a page provided with conversion tracking tag.
