Setting up the Google AdWords integration can be done in just four simple steps:
Before you get started, pause any ad-blocking software you are currently using. Because Google authentication uses pop ups, you may encounter issues if ad blockers aren't disabled during the setup.
Before you can connect your AdWords data, you'll need to verify that your AdWords account is linked to the Analytics profile you want to use to connect to Stitch. If your accounts aren't linked before you attempt to connect AdWords to Stitch, you'll encounter issues.
You can verify that your Analytics account contains AdWords data (meaning the accounts are linked) by doing the following:
If you see data in the report that displays, that means your AdWords and Analytics accounts are successfully linked. The GIF above is for process demonstration purposes only - as you can see, we don't have any AdWords data in that particular account.
To access your AdWords data, Stitch requires at least Read & Analyze permissions. Verify that the GA profile(s) you want to connect have these permissions before continuing.
If the profile you use to connect doesn’t have these permissions (or there’s no data in the account), you’ll receive the error below:
After your credentials are validated, you'll be redirected back to Stitch and a list of GA profiles will display.
To complete the setup, you need to select the GA profile(s) you want to connect to Stitch.
Remember: profiles need to have Read & Analyze permissions to be detected by Stitch. If you don’t see a profile you want in this list, we recommend that you double-check the permission settings.
After you’ve selected the profiles you want to connect, click the Save Integration button to complete the setup.
That's it! Sit back, relax, and let your data flow.
