    I am trying to figure out how to set up my analytics tracking to show which users clicked an adsense ad. Is there anyway to set up an advanced conversion goal to tackle this or am I barking up a dead tree?

    Could have sworn I was able to do it a couple of years ago. A little rusty I guess lol.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think there is no feature like that (anymore?) because of privacy reasons. Same as you don't get all the search terms anymore.
    There might be two workarounds for this:

    a) send each user from a different url
    b) send each user TO a different url

    Then you can look up the exact url via

    a) Behavior -> Publisher Referrers -> Second dimension "Referral path"
    b) Behavior -> Publisher Pages

    I actually integrated my adsense with analytics and I can see what ad blocks are being clicked on from each page, you just have to drill down pretty deep.
