I would like to track conversion from an Adwords campaign but need some guidance on how and where to insert the  HTML code provided by Google into my Websitebuilder site.  There are two snippets that need to be inserted.  The first is a "global site tag" that goes into the header on each page.  I believe I understand where that goes.  The second snippet is an "event snippet" that gets added to the page a customer reaches after completing a conversion.  In my case, this is our "Thank You" page.  My challenge is, how do I add the event snippet to the "Thank You" page without adding it to all pages on the site?

Hello,

If you need HTML added to only one page in Website Builder, I would recommend you use the HTML element. This would be under Elements > HTML > Embed HTML

Hi Elyzabeth,

Thanks, the instructions stay to "Add it in between the <head></head> tags of the page(s) you'd like to track, right after the global site tag".  Do you have a suggestion as to where that would be?

Hello,

Unfortunately, there is not a way to specify where the HTML is placed like that. It will  be placed in the Body.

Is it possible for someone at Homestead to place the code in the Header of one page?  I've tried placing it as you suggested (in the body) but it does not work correctly.

No, we cannot place HTML any other way than is available to you through the builder.

Thanks for getting back...please ask the developers to add this functionality to WebsiteBuilder.  Without it, there is no way to track AdWords conversions.  For conversion tracking, Google needs HTML code added to every page of a site and then another snippet of code to the page that represents a conversion.
