Best Practices: Combine AdWords with Google Analytics for Better Insights, Bidding and Results
Like sunshine and the beach, or dogs and tennis balls, Google AdWords and Google Analytics are great by themselves but even better together. You'll get high-performance insights into your ads and your website when you link your AdWords and Analytics accounts. Google Analytics does a vital job in this pairing: it shows you what happened after users clicked on your AdWords ads.
Best Practice GuideWe’ve put together a new Best Practices guide, Better Together: AdWords and Google Analytics, to help you get deep insight into your performance. When you analyze performance with the combination of GA and AdWords you can find all sorts of actionable info:
- Which parts of your account drive actual on-site engagement
- Which keywords attract new users to your site
- What messaging and landing pages connect with the different users on your site
- How your business compares across your entire industry
To whet your appetite, here’s a rundown of ten useful GA reports included in the guide (with links that lead you directly to these reports in your own GA account). Like what you see here?
