1. Log in to Tealium and navigate to the Tags tab.
  2. Click + Add.
  3. In the Tag Marketplace dialog box that appears, search "AdRoll" or find it in the "Display Ad" category.
  4. Click +Add.
  5. In the AdRoll Tag Settings dialog box that appears, configure your tag by entering your unique Advertiser ID and Pixel ID.
  6. You will find these IDs when you log in to AdRoll: adroll_adv_id = Advertiser ID and adroll_pix_id = Pixel ID
  7. Copy the alphanumeric string and paste into the corresponding field.
  8. Click Next to continue to enhanced conversion tracking setup. 


Enhanced conversion tracking

Basic conversion tracking allows you to count the number of conversions attributed to your campaign. Enhanced conversion tracking pulls in additional data about that conversion, for example revenue. To set up enhanced conversion tracking through Tealium:

  1. Tag Configuration: Configure your AdRoll tag using this guide.
  2. Load Rules: Set your page load rule. The default is to Load on Every Page, which we recommend. If you need to, you can also set your tag to fire on specific pages, by clicking Create Rule.
  3. Data Mappings: Map website variables to AdRoll to enhance campaign reporting. Identify your data source (where the information can be found) and destination (where to send that information). The rest of this article covers how to complete this part.


Identifying data sources

Skip this part if you already have your data sources mapped. If you do not have any data sources, you will need to add them. This section will walk you through identifying the variables (data sources) you want AdRoll to track. This may require technical help from a developer.

  1. Click Add Data Source.
  2. The two required fields you need to complete in the window are source and type. "Source" is your variable name. "Type" identifies what type of variable "Source" references.
Tealium can identify all sorts of variables, but the conversion variables we're looking for are most likely a UDO (universal data object) or javascript type variables.


UDO variables

To determine if you use UDO variables, search your source for "utag".

To pass back revenue:

  • Source = order_total
  • Type = UDO Variable

Any of the other variables listed (e.g. site_currency) can also be added to Tealium as a data source.

Javascript variables

Consult your developer to identify other types of javascript variables. To pass back revenue in this case:

  • Source = [your revenue variable name]
  • Type = Javascript Variables

Mapping data sources to destinations

Once you have your data sources created, you can select them from the dropdown menu. Pick your data source and then click "Select Destination" to map it to AdRoll.

Conversion revenue

  1. Pick your revenue variable (e.g. order_total) and then "Select Destination".
  2. Pick "Conversion Value in Dollars" from the standard destinations listed. 

Other custom data

  1. Pick your custom variable (e.g. site_currency) and then "Select Destination".
  2. Pick "Custom Data" from the standard destinations listed.
  3. Click into the text field that reads "adroll_custom_data."
  4. After the period, add the name you want to give your data source in AdRoll reports. For example, "adroll_custom_data.page_type", where "page_type" will be how you identify the data source in AdRoll reports.
