Bear in mind

  • Everyone who uses your AdWords account will be able to see your imported Google Analytics metrics.
  • To ensure that you're importing the targeted information that you need, it's important that you've linked your AdWords account to all the relevant Google Analytics views. For example, if your AdWords account has keywords and ads that target landing pages on four different websites, then it's important that you link your AdWords account to a Google Analytics view for each of the four sites.
  • You can import Analytics data into your AdWords account from only one view per property, from a maximum of 10 properties.
  • If you don't tag every page that you want to track in Google Analytics, then you won't get the complete data that you're looking for.
  • Mobile app property metrics can't be imported from Google Analytics.
  • You can't segment Google Analytics metrics by some dimensions, such as device.
