The following click type data is available for the reports listed below:

  • Shopping ad: A click on your ad, showing an online product.
  • Shopping ad – local: A click on your ad, showing a local product.
  • Shopping ad – multichannel local: A click on the local section of your ad that has two links. One click to the local product and another click to the online product.
  • Shopping ad – multichannel online: A click on the in-store decoration will result in the multichannel local click reporting. Click on the main ad with the in-store decoration will result in the multichannel online click.
