Campaign Types for Conversion Action Sets

As of September 2019, conversion action sets are available for Google Ads search campaigns and display campaigns. You cannot use them at this time for the other campaign types, but that may change in the future. Please refer to the latest Google Ads policies for changes.

Why Use Conversion Action Sets?

There are plenty of reasons that you need to optimize your campaigns for multiple conversion actions. For example, if you have a local business that keeps track of online bookings and phone calls, both of them can be used when you are optimizing your Google Ads campaigns.

In addition, eCommerce stores can track sales, newsletter sign-ups, new accounts, add to cart actions, and more. And best of all, you are able to set a specific value on every action, which can be very useful when you are utilizing the Target ROAS bidding strategy.

Conversion Actions Need to Be Active in Your Account

If you have old conversion actions that are not active in your account, you cannot use them in your conversion action sets. You need to have 2 or more active conversions in your Google Ads account to use action sets.
