Connecting Google Adwords

Requires Admin permissions

You did your research, you created your ads, you launched your campaign. Now it's time to analyze your ad spend data and see if your money is being spent effectively. Using your ad spend data, you can measure campaign ROI by marrying your advertising cost and the customer lifetime value (CLV) of users acquired from your campaigns.

Let's get started by entering our Google Adwords credentials into Magento BI:

  1. Go to the Connections page under Manage Data > Integrations.
  2. Click the Add Integration button, located on the upper-right side of the screen.
  3. Click the Google Adwords icon. This will open the Google Adwords credentials page.
  4. Enter your Google Analytics (GA) credentials. Upon completion of the authorization process, you will be redirected back to Magento BI.
  5. A list of profile IDs will display. Check the profiles you want to connect to Magento BI.

  6. Changes are saved automatically, so click the Back to Connections button when you're done.

If you have multiple profiles and need some help identifying which is which, refer to the Connecting Multiple GA profiles section below.

  1. Log into Google Analytics
  2. Go to the particular website's GA dashboard
  3. Look at the URL - the Profile ID corresponds to the 8 numbers following "p" at the end of the line:
