In order to connect your accounts, log in to your AudienceReport account and click on your profile in the top right corner. Then click on “Account settings”.
Once you are in the Account settings section, click on “Integrated reports” and then on the green “+” button to add your ad accounts and/or partners.
Then select Google Ads.
Once you have selected Google Ads, you will need to follow these steps:
Step 1: Enter your Google Ads account IDs
If you wish to connect your Google Ads account, you will be asked to enter the Google Ads account IDs you want to integrate. In order to find these, please log in to your Google Ads account and click on the profile icon in the top right corner.
NOTE: we can't connect MCC (My Client Center) accounts, only Ad accounts under them.
You will find the account IDs next to the account names in the menu (please notice that the ID is a 10-digit number).
Now go back to AudienceReport and enter the account IDs you want to integrate. To add more than one ID, just click on the green “+” button.
When you are done adding IDs, click on “next”.
Step 2: Accept the link request
Within 24 hours we will send a linkage request to your Google Ads account, which you need to accept before we can finalize the setup.
To accept the request, please log in to your Google Ads account and click on the notification icon in the top right corner.
You will now see the new account access request. Please click on “view” to open the invite.
Now you can accept the invite coming from our account called "AudienceReport Integrated Reporting"(firstname.lastname@example.org
Please notice that in order to accept this invite, you will need to have Admin access level to your Google Ads account.
Within a couple of hours, after you have accepted the link, the accounts will be connected and you will be able to check the status of the integration in the Integrated reports tab.
You can now create your first Integrated Report. If instead you still need to connect your Facebook Ads account, please read the guide.
Integrated Reporting with Google Ads: permissions limitations
Please notice that when the AudienceReport Integrated Reporting account is invited to your Google Ads account, you need to grant it administrator access and you cannot give "Read Only" access to it.
