How do we enable and test the Google Ads Integration?
Enabling Google Ads Integration
Enabling the Google Ads integration is very easy. Simply navigate to the admin panel and select ‘Google Ads Linking’ under ‘Property Settings’ > ‘Product Linking’
Select the ‘Link’ button in the top right
Select ‘Choose Google Ads accounts’ – this will bring up a slide across window
Tick the checkbox next to the account you want to link then select ‘Confirm’ – this will close the slide across window
Choose whether you would like to ‘Enable Personalised Advertising’ and leave auto tagging enabled.
A review panel will show and select ‘Submit’ if you are happy with the review. After this the linking should be pretty much instant.
Testing to see if Google Ads is linked
First things first navigate to the admin panel and click on Google Ads linking under Property Settings > Product Linking. You will then be able to see if there is one or more accounts linked. If there is none then see the previous section on how to link. If you see the account you are after then try the step below.
In any report select add comparison and under dimensions you should see User ad dimensions(not greyed out). Then start utilising them in your reports to see if the data looks A OK.
