WhosOn has a pre-setup sample alert to pick up adwords. If you want to get this working, you just need to enable the global tracking in your adwords account. This appends a variable gclid= to the querystring on the click.

To set this up:

1. Log in to adwords
2. Select "My Account"
3. Select "Account Preferences"
4. On the right hand side select "edit" next to tracking.
5. Check the "Destination URL Auto-tagging" box.
6. Click "Save Changes"


Now all clicks will have the gclid appended, and WhosOn will pick this up automatically in its adwords alert.
