This article is about Google Analytics 4 properties. Refer to the Universal Analytics section if you're still using a Universal Analytics property, which will stop processing data on July 1, 2023 (July 1, 2024 for Analytics 360 properties).

[GA4] Google Ad Manager integration

Link Google Analytics 4 properties to Google Ad Manager.

When you link your Ad Manager network with a Google Analytics 4 property, your Analytics app and web data from that property becomes available in your Ad Manager reports.

Your Ad Manager revenue data will be available in the Monetization > Publisher ads reports and the Explorations workspace in your Google Analytics 4 property.

You create the link from Ad Manager. Learn more

Once you establish the link, it is listed in Analytics under Admin > Property column > PRODUCT LINKS > Ad Manager Links. Analytics users with the Editor role are able to delete the link.

When you link Ad Manager and Google Analytics 4, Analytics starts collecting the following events automatically:

  • ad_click
  • ad_impression
  • ad_query

With the Ad Manager integration, Analytics collects each of these events for each ad on a page, which can cause an increase in the number of billable events for 360 properties.
