Report on Google Analytics data

Add Google Analytics columns to reports

By default, Search Ads 360 provides several columns for reporting metrics from Google Analytics, including columns that report the total number and value of the Ecommerce transations and goals that you've set up in Google Analytics.

You can also create custom columns in Search Ads 360, called Google Analytics activity columns, to report on specific Ecommerce transactions and goals. You can also apply alternate attribution models to Google Analytics activity columns.

After you add columns, you can download and schedule reports that contain the data.
