set up facebook ad tracking

If you’re using Wicked Reports, you most likely want to track the ROI of your Facebook ads.

Before you can do that, you need to set up Facebook ad tracking on each individual ad.

Sounds labor intensive, I know what you’re thinking.


We recently came out with our “Facebook Ad Validator”.

Our Facebook Ad Validator serves two main purposes.

  1. Shows you if your ads have tracking on them
  2. Allows you to update your individual Facebook ads with tracking after clicking a few buttons

Before the Facebook Ad Validator was released, you had to manually (and painfully) update each individual ad inside of your Facebook account.

Updating 20 ads could take you 45 minutes.

Not. Fun.

As we mentioned, you can now update those 20 ads (or hundreds of ads) in seconds.

To update your Facebook ads with tracking, simply log into your Wicked Reports account and go to the “Extras -> FB Ad Validator.”

Once here, you can select your campaigns from the dropdown menu. Select the campaign you’d like to look at, and hit “Get Live FB Ads”.


Once your ads load, you’ll see all of the individual ads in each campaign.

To update the ads, simply check the box next to the ones you want to update, and then click on the green “Update FB Ad URL Params” button.

Three Options

Once you click on that, you have 3 options:

  1. WickedIDs
  2. UTMs
