AdWords Campaigns



The AdWords Campaigns analysis report provides data on the performance of Google AdWords campaigns that are connected to the same Google Analytics profile as the domain's campaign in Rank Ranger. A Compare to Past feature allows you to include comparison data for the previous period, same time last year or a custom date range.

Report data can be filtered by Key Metric (sessions, percentage of new sessions, new users, bounce rate, pages per session, etc.), Segment and Goal Conversion type.  Goal Value can be displayed in your choice of world currencies.

Important! To view this report Google Analytics must be configured correctly (please refer to our Google Analytics documentation) for the primary domain. In addition, AdWords must be linked to your Google Analytics profile (refer to Link Google Analytics and AdWords).

Traffic Metrics

 
The Traffic Metrics table displays sessions, percentage of new sessions, new users, bounce rate,  pages per session, average session duration, goal conversion rate, goal completions and goal value per campaign.

Google Analytics API limits the number of requests from an IP address for a domain each day. If you see a screen in our Analytics section that displays titles but no data, it could be that you/your team have exceeded that threshold by multiple rechecks. Logging in from a different IP address or waiting until the next day should resolve the issue. Please contact us if the issue is not resolved within 24 hours.
