A Guide to Using AdWords with Google Analytics
Both AdWords and Google Analytics offer insights into the performance of your campaigns, and those insights get better when you use GA + AdWords together. Improve your bidding, messaging and performance through these analyses.
Pull Google Analytics Metrics Into AdWords for Deeper Insights
1. Import goal completions and ecommerce transactions.
Why: You can perform richer analysis on customized analytics goals (including microconversions), and then optimize to those GA goals right in AdWords.
2. Create custom remarketing lists.
Why: Create highly-specific remarketing lists based on pages viewed, goal completions or other GA segmentations.
3. Use Smart Lists to automatically group your site users that are most likely to convert.
Why: Reach engaged (but not yet converted) users of your site without needing to segment those audiences yourself.
4. Understand which Adwords campaigns, ads or keywords drive on-site engagement.
Why: Conversions only tell part of the story. GA tells you more about how users engage with your site, and the keywords that do (or don’t) bring them in.
5. Monitor ‘% new sessions’ to learn which keywords attract new users.
Why: Spotting new users from AdWords tells you how to focus your efforts, especially when they’re coming into contact with you for the first time.

9. Use AdWords Secondary Dimensions in GA Reports.
Why: Find AdWords-specific insights using any of your favorite reports in Analytics— insights that can improve your account’s performance.

Why: See what’s possible in your industry and how your own desktop and mobile sites compare.
