Hello Friends;


I have a google analytics account for my company. And my agency is running adwords for me using their gmail id. Both gmail ids are different.


Can I connect their adwords account to my analytics account under acquisition.


What is the best practice in this scenario when agency is running ads for you?


Please dont mind if this is very simple & basic question.

Your help will be highly appreciated.


Thank You,

Hi Nilesh
This is a relatively straightforward process.

Your agency can connect the AdWords account to your GA account inside AdWords but you'll need to give them admin access. You can learn about this here:

Add users
You can add as many users as you need. To add a new user to an account/property/view:

Sign in to your Google Analytics account.
Select the Admin
tab and navigate to the desired account/property/view
In the ACCOUNT, PROPERTY, or VIEW column (depending upon whether you want to add the user at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.
Under Add permissions for, enter the email address for the user's Google Account.
Select the permissions you want. Learn more about permissions.
Select Notify this user by email to send a notification to each user you're adding.
Click Add.

Thank You Dave.

Giving admin access to agency is little difficult. But I am happy that there is a solution.

Thank you for the help.
