segment by hour of day at keyword level

Hi, 

 

I am trying to work out what hour of the day a certain keyword was clicked. I can see how to find out how many clicks we had per hour, but not what time a certain keyword was clicked.

 

I've checked the forum and others seem to have the same problem, but I cannot find a solution. Can anyone help?

 

Many thanks

Do you have Google Analytics Installed?

In GA navigate to Acquisition> Adwords> Keywords. Click through to the keyword you want, then use "Secondary Dimensions" > Time > Hour ( Make sure you are are the CLICKS view from the explorer instead of summary)

That will show you the time of those clicks.

( Double check that the Time setting on your Adwords account is the same time setting on your Analytics account)

Hey Adam, how are things?

Adwords doesn't provide hourly reports on keyword level. They're only available for Campaigns and Ad Groups level.

You'll be able to do that on Google Analytics instead, but first you would have to link your Adwords with you Analytics account if they're not linked. Here's how:

Adwords data will only appear on Analytics from the moment you create the link. They're not retroactive.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Hi Leandro,

Thanks, I didn't realise this. I'll get it from Google Analytics.

Hi,

 

I tried to fetch this report from analytics. I can see keyword wise click data. But when  I add secondary dimesnsion-hour, clicks data is becoming zero. I have connected adwords & analytics accounts as well!

 

Can anybody help?

Same issues. Does anyone know why adding hour dimension causes some problem?
