  • More complex, but provides more information about where your clicks are coming from.
  • Ideal if you’re interested in the entire flow of customers through your site, not just conversions.

  • Less complex, but provides less information about where your clicks are coming from.
  • Ideal if you’re interested only in conversions.
  • Tracks conversions only from AdWords sources.

You can use both, they will not interfere each other so no need to change configuration.
