Tracking Adwords Signups Help

I am looking for the best way to track multiple ad words goals on my Ad Words campaign.

Goal #1 is easy enough to setup - I can post their code on wp-signup.php and it will tell me how many visitors are getting to the signup page. What part of the code would I insert "Goal #2's code" if i want to be able to tell when a user account is generated - without hopefully double tracking the initial goal ?

A plugin for this would be nice and I assume fairly simple but I guess demand is low due to such few people using Ad Words for their WPMU / Buddy Press sites which I understand. Just surprised not to see more chat about it in these forums.

    I think we've only had a single thread on Adwords since I got here:

    [Can;t find it right off. We just talked about it a couple of days ago.]

    Anything concerning hosting or blogging is usually out of price range for most of us here. The problem is most hosting outfits have affiliate programs that pay over $100 a signup. Trying to buy in Adsense for those terms is out of the price range for most of us.

    See here for discussion: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/is-wpmu-site-worth-advertising

    Although other terms are cheaper. Most of the discussion here though has been on getting folks to your install.

    I am personally driving traffic to my web site with ad words just to generate user signups to blog at my site. I am not using it for anything else .. I am generating some penny clicks and it works out well for me :slight_smile:

    Below is my code on wp-signup.php which enables tracking the number of people that reach that page on my web site. However I need to know which keywords are generating user registrations not just page views of wp-signup.php - I tried editing this file in multiple locations and the second goal I add continues to show up on wp-signup.php no matter what I do.

    So, to recap :

    1) Tracking number of users I pay for to my WPMU site's registration page - done. However it might double track because it loads the same code again after signup as well as when they reach the page wp-signup.php which I wish I could avoid.

    2) Now I need to be able to track when a user successfully creates a page simply by entering the google tracking code somewhere, even if it is a core edit ...

    wp-config.php file code currently (BTW, Thanks Dr. Mike - I understand that but I am using this for a different purpose)
