When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie (which expires in 30 days) is stored on your computer.

During the cookie's 30-day period of validity, Google and our site can see that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to our site. As each Google Ads client is given a unique cookie, these cookies cannot be tracked across Google Ads clients’ sites.

This allows Google Ads customers to learn about the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and redirected to a page using a conversion tracking tag.
