Link Google Analytics 4 properties to Display & Video 360
This article is for website owners who want to link their Google Analytics 4 property with their Display & Video 360 advertiser.

When you link your Google Analytics 4 property to your Display & Video 360 advertiser, you get the following benefits:

  • Analytics exports audiences and conversions to Display & Video 360.
  • Your Display & Video 360 advertiser appears as a traffic source in your GA4 paid and organic channel reports.
  • Display & Video 360 campaign and cost data is imported to Analytics.
  • View your campaign cost data in the Display & Video performance report in the Advertising section.
  • Learn how visitors acquired through campaigns engage with your website or app using the Display & Video report in the Reports section.
  • Access Display & Video-specific dimensions in the Explore, Audience Builder, Segment Builder, and Custom Reports.

Link your Display & Video 360 account to your Analytics property (including subproperties and roll-up properties) to see the full customer cycle, from how users interact with your marketing (e.g., clicking ads) to how they finally complete the conversions you’ve set for them on your site or app (e.g., making purchases, consuming content).

Audience export

To export audiences from Analytics:

With Google signals activated and Personalized Advertising enabled in the link settings, audiences are automatically exported to Display & Video 360.

Audiences that contain demographics or interests data will not be exported.

When you export audiences, they appear under All Audiences in the linked Display & Video 360 advertiser. You can use the audiences as-is for targeting, or combine them with other audiences. You can also perform analyses on them.

Conversion export

When Analytics exports conversions, it uses the paid and organic channel last click attribution model. You can use those conversions for custom bidding in Display & Video 360.

Create the link

If you have the Editor role for the Analytics property and the Admin role for the Display & Video 360 advertiser, you can complete the linking process.

If you only have the Editor role for the Analytics property, then you can initiate the linking process and send a request to a user who has the Admin role for the Display & Video 360 advertiser so that user can complete the process.

You can also complete or initiate the link from the Display & Video 360 advertiser. Learn more
