About Executive Reporting - Search Ads 360 Help [gg-searchads-en]

About Executive Reporting

When it's time to present performance metrics to your clients or executives, instead of manually downloading detailed data and distilling it into useful summaries, create an executive report in Search Ads 360. A Search Ads 360 executive report displays your Search Ads 360 metrics in terms of revenue, costs, trends, and other high-level concepts, all formatted as charts and tables. You can share a link to the report, or download it for printing and sharing.

You can scope your report to contain data from multiple agencies, advertisers, and accounts, or just specific agencies, advertisers, and accounts.

Executive reports display only performance metrics for supported searchsocial, and engine track accounts. They do not display attributes, such as keyword text, ad copy, or cost-per-click settings. Only campaigns that contain data will be visible in executive reports.

For example, use executive reports to show:

  • Week-over-week trends.

    Executive report chart that shows week over week trends
  • Multiple metrics on one chart.

    Executive report bar chart with two metrics
  • Tables with aggregated data.

    Executive report table that displays aggregated data and Totals row

    Tables do not include a segment if every metric is zero. For example, in the preceding table, the Other engines segment would not be included in the table if the clicks, impressions, and revenue metrics for every time period were zero.

Share your report

When you're ready to share your report with clients, executives, or other people who do not use Search Ads 360, you can send them a link to the report or you can send the downloaded report.

Within Search Ads 360, your report is visible to Search Ads 360 users who have permission to view all of the objects in your report. For example, if you create a report for all accounts and campaigns in the Gizmo agency, any Search Ads 360 user with access to the Gizmo agency can see your report.

In the example above, a Search Ads 360 user who has access only to some Gizmo accounts will not be able to see your report. Users need permission to view all of the objects in your report, or they won't be able to see the report in Search Ads 360.

Having trouble accessing executive reports?

While Search Ads 360 supports Internet Explorer, we recommend that you use Chrome or Firefox with Search Ads 360. Please note that we only support the latest version of your browser. If you're having problems accessing Search Ads 360, downloading reports, or accessing executive reports, check your browser extensions to make sure they're not blocking access. Also check your ad blocker because it might block certain Search Ads 360 features.

Use pages to organize your report

For reports with more than a few charts or tables, consider creating multiple report pages and adding thematically similar charts on each page. When you download a report and open it, each page will be a separate sheet.

Which file formats are available?

For viewing and printing downloaded reports, the .xlsx and PDF file formats are supported.

Keyword targeting - Campaign Manager 360 Help [gg-campaignmanager-en]

Manage targeting

Keyword targeting

You can target your ad to keywords in the placement tag.

  1. Choose Include placeholder in your placement properties to include a keyword placeholder for your publisher. This makes it easy for you or your publisher to add keywords to your tags.

    Or choose Generate a tag for each keyword if you need to use different tags for each keyword targeted by each ad. Campaign Manager 360 will automatically include each keyword you target in a separate tag, but no single tag will have more than one keyword. Learn more

  2. Ask your publisher to replace the placeholder with the keywords you wish to target, or add them yourself.

    This is important, because Campaign Manager 360 targets the keywords in your tags. When an impression is available, Campaign Manager 360 checks whether the one or more of the targeted keywords is in the tag. If it is not in the tag, Campaign Manager 360 does not serve the ad.

  3. Add these keywords to the Keyword expressions section of your ad properties. Your ad will only serve to a site if the placement tag includes these keywords in the keyword handling section (kw=).

For more advanced keyword targeting, use more advanced keyword expressions (see below).

When to use keyword targeting

Typically, keyword targeting is used to target ads based on publisher data. For example, the publisher may insert keywords that identify the section of a site where the ad request originates, or what language is used on the page. Publishers may also add this kind of data dynamically.

For example, if a site has a search function, a publisher may add code to your tag that expands dynamically into the term a user searches for on the site. If the search term matches the keyword you target in your ad properties, the ad serves to the user. If the search term doesn't match, another ad serves. 

Basic keyword targeting example

You want to use the same placement for ads that appear on three different parts of a site: the main page, the contacts page, and the about page. However, one of the ads on your placement is only meant for users on the main page. Here's what you do:

  1. Assign a few ads to a placement and export tags. Ask your publisher to implement your tags in three different places on a site: the main page, the contacts page, and the about page. 

  2. Ask the publisher to add the keyword "main" to the tag that goes on the main page.

  3. Open the properties of the ad you want to show on the main page. Enter main in the Keyword expression field. Because main is found only in the tag on the main page, this ad will only serve to users on the main page. 

Dynamic keyword targeting example

You want a different ad to appear depending on whether the user searches for "soda", "juice", or "water" on a site. For users who don't search for these terms, you want to show a more generic ad. Here's what you do:

  1. Assign a soda ad, a juice ad, a water ad, and a generic ad to your placement. Using the Keyword expression field in your ad properties, target the soda ad to soda, the juice ad to juice, and the water ad to water

  2. Set the priority for the generic ad to be a higher number (i.e., a lower priority) than the other ads.

  3. Ask the publisher to add code that expands dynamically into the term a user searches for on the site. When a user searches for soda, the code will expand into soda and the ad targeted to soda will be eligible to serve. The same process selects the juice ad or water ad depending on the search. 

    If a user doesn't search for these terms, only the generic ad will be eligible to serve. 

Advanced keyword expression targeting example

You want to target your ads to users who search a site for any of the following keywords:

  • soda
  • juice
  • drink, as long as user didn't also search for straw.

Here's what you do:

  1. Assign an ad to your placement.

  2. Enter the following keyword expression into the the Keyword expression section of your ad properties: soda, juice, (drink and !straw).

    The exclamation point before straw means that the word "straw" must not be found. So (drink and !straw) means that "drink" only meets your criteria if "straw" is not found.

  3. Assign a generic ad to your placement and don't target it to a keyword. Set the priority for the generic ad to be a higher number (i.e., a lower priority) than the other ad.

  4. Ask the publisher to add code that expands dynamically into the term a user searches for on the site.

    • In this case, the ad can serve if a user searches for soda, for juice, or for drink (if the user didn't also search for straw).

    • If a user doesn't search for these terms, only the generic ad will be eligible to serve. 

  5. Campaign Manager 360 logs the search term that matches your criteria. Campaign Manager 360 will not log any of the other search terms. In the case above, if the user searched for juice, only the search term "juice" would be logged.

What are keyword expressions?

Keyword expressions include any group of keywords. The simplest way to group keywords is to separate them with commas, such as: soda, juice, water. In this case, your ad serves if any of these keywords is found in the keyword handling section of the tag (or if all three are found).

You can use special characters to set more advanced rules for how Campaign Manager 360 targets keywords. See the bottom of this article for a table of special characters and their uses in keyword targeting.

Keyword targeting and your reports

Campaign Manager 360 logs the exact keyword expression you target and associates it with each impression. Campaign Manager 360 does not log which particular keyword is found in your tags. It only tells you which keyword expression matched your tags for a particular impression.

  1. Say you target a car ad with the keyword expression car,driver.

    This means Campaign Manager 360 must find either car or driver in the tag to serve your ad.

  2. Next, your publisher adds code to the tag that pulls in any keywords that visitors search for when they visit the site.

  3. After your tag goes live, a user visits and searches for "cars" on the site. Now the tag has the keyword car in it, because the user searched for "cars" on the site and the publisher's system dynamically added the search term to your tag.

  4. Later, the user visits a page that has your tag. The tag's keyword matches the keyword expression you wanted to target your car ad to. It matches because one of the two keywords was found (car). For this reason, the impression goes to your car ad.

  5. In your reports, Campaign Manager 360 will show associate the impression with the keyword expression car,driver. It will not log which keyword was actually found in the tag. You will only know that one or both of the keywords was found.


What characters can't I use in keywords?

The following special characters cannot be used in keyword expressions: 

  • ^ (caret)
  • + (plus sign)
  • < > (angle brackets)
  • * (asterisk)
How do I target a keyword if it includes a character I can't use?

Ask the publisher to add code to the keyword handling section of your tag that changes the special character into a substitute. Then target that substitue.

For example, say you want to target your ad to users who search for the keyword  C++. Ask the publisher to set up the code so that any instance of a plus sign is changed to {plus}in your tag. Then target your add to the keyword C{plus}{plus}.

Can I change keywords as much as I want? Is there a limit?

An ad can use 1500 keywords over its lifetime. The total count of keywords includes any currently active keywords, each time you modify a keyword, and any keywords that were previously used and have been deleted. Note that terms joined by an and are counted as one keyword.

Keep in mind that for counting purposes, keyword expressions using parentheses are parsed into keyword expressions that don't need them. For example, if you enter car and (stereo,audio), keywords are counted for the equivalent expression car and stereo,car and audio. Two keywords are counted.

Special characters in keyword expressions

Special character Usage Example

, (comma)

Separates keywords in a list. Any keyword in the list is a match. Equivalent to the Boolean operator OR.



The ad can serve either audio or equipment or both keywords are found.

# (pound or hash sign)

Requires an exact match with whatever comes after the hash sign.



The ad can only serve if car is found in the tag by itself. If other keywords are included in the keyword section, the ad is not served.




The ad can serve if car or audio is found, but not both.

" " (quotation marks)

Requires the exact phrase within the quotation marks.

"audio equipment"


The ad can serve only if the exact phrase audio equipment is found. No other combination of the two words is a match, and no additional letters are allowed. Variations such as audio equipments, equipment, or equipment audio are not considered matches.

You can only create keyword phrases that include spaces by putting them in quotation marks. For example, you won't be allowed to save the keyword expression audio equipment without quotation marks. However, you can use spaces to separate Boolean operators such as and and or (for example, audio and equipment is an acceptable keyword phrase).


Use with two keywords, one before and one after the word and. Requires that both keywords are found.

audio and equipment


The ad can serve if both  audio and equipment are found. If other keywords are also found, or if the keywords are in a different order, the ad can still serve.

( ) (parentheses)

Groups keywords aso that you can set rules within the parentheticals.


Parentheses around a single keyword are ignored.

car and (new,used)


The ad can serve if car plus either new or used are found. So if car and new are found, the ad can serve. If car and used are found, the ad can serve. If car and new and used are found, the ad can serve. If only new is found, the ad can't serve.

! (exclamation point)

Excludes the keyword that follows it.

You must include a keyword you wish to target in order to add one you wish to exclude. You can't add the excluded keyword by itself.

car and !stereo


The ad can serve if car is found and stereo is not found. If car and stereo are both found, the ad can't serve. If car is not found and neither is stereo, the ad can't serve. If stereo is found, the ad can't serve.

Target mobile impressions - Display & Video 360 Help [gg-displayvideo-en]

Mobile campaigns

Target mobile impressions

By default, all new line items will target both desktop and app inventory. If you want to target only specific types of inventory, you can use the following types of targeting.

Keep in mind, line items use the same bids for all impressions, regardless of each impression's device type (desktop, mobile, or otherwise). If you want to bid different amounts for mobile and desktop impressions, we suggest you create separate mobile- and desktop-specific line items.


Remember, in order to purchase mobile impressions, your line item must have at least one creative that's an appropriate size for mobile devices. See Details about mobile creatives for more information.

For example, if your Google Ads account has keywords and ads that target landing pages on 4 different websites, it's important that you link your Google Ads account to a Google Analytics view for each of the 4 sites.
  • You can import Analytics data into your Google Ads account from only 1 view per property, from a maximum of 10 properties.
  • If you don't tag every page you want to track in Google Analytics, you won't get the complete data you're looking for.
  • Mobile app property metrics can't be imported from Google Analytics.
  • You can't segment Google Analytics metrics by some dimensions, such as device.

About extensions - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

About extensions

Extensions expand your ad with additional information, giving people more reasons to choose your business. These may increase an ad's clickthrough rate by several percentage points. Extension formats include call buttons, location information, links to specific parts of your website, additional text, and more.

This article gives an overview of extensions in general. To learn what each extension type does and how to pick the right extensions for you, check Select extensions to use.

Boost your ad with extensions in Google Ads

To see subtitles in your language, turn on YouTube captions. Select the "Settings" icon Image of YouTube settings icon at the bottom of the video player, then select "Subtitles/CC" and choose your language.


How they work

To maximize the performance of your text ads, Google Ads selects which extensions to show in response to each individual search on Google. For that reason, it's a good idea to use all the extensions relevant to your business goals.

By adding more content to your ad, extensions give your ad greater visibility on the search results page. This means you tend to get more value from your ad. Extensions often increase your total number of clicks and can give people additional interactive ways of reaching you, such as through maps or calls.

There are 2 types of extensions: manual and automated extensions. Manual extensions require a bit of set up while automated extensions are added automatically when Google Ads predicts these will improve your ad performance. No setup is required for automated extensions so these won't show up among your options when you're creating manual extensions. Learn more about automated extensions

When extensions show

Adding an extension won't guarantee that it'll show with your ad all the time. Extensions show with your ad when:

  • The extension (or combination of extensions) is predicted to improve your performance. Keep track of when your extensions show and measure your ad extension performance.
  • Your ad's position and Ad Rank is high enough for extensions to show. To show extensions, Google Ads requires a minimum Ad Rank (Ad Rank calculations factor in your extensions).

You can find instructions on how to add and edit extensions in Make extensions more likely to show. If you want to know how to delete manual or automated extensions, check Remove extensions.


There's no cost in adding extensions to your campaign. Clicks on your ad, including your extension, will be charged as usual while clicks on seller ratings won't be charged. You'll be charged for a click when someone calls you from a call extension or when someone downloads your app from an app extension. Google Ads charges no more than 2 clicks per impression for each ad and its extensions. Learn more about extensions and your actual cost-per-click

Import Google Analytics conversions into Google Ads - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Import Google Analytics conversions into Google Ads

When it comes to analyzing customer activity on your website, you can import your Google Analytics conversions into Google Ads and use Google Ads conversion tracking to measure the conversions. You can use any combination of all three at the same time. Expand the section below for a quick comparison.

Compare Google Analytics conversions and Google Ads conversion tracking

Universal Analytics conversions

  • Can measure the entire flow of customers through your site (in addition to conversions).
  • Can include conversions from non-Google Ads sources, so it's good for tracking all customer traffic on your website.

Google Analytics 4 properties conversion tracking

  • Ideal if you're interested in measurement and conversions across your app or website. Learn more about Google Analytics 4 properties.
  • Can include conversions from non-Google Ads sources, so it's good for tracking all customer traffic on your website.

Google Ads conversion tracking


Importing your Google Analytics conversions into Google Ads offers a few benefits:

  • Access your Google Analytics conversions and data related to your Google Ads clicks.
  • See Google Analytics conversion data in Google Ads.
  • Give Smart Bidding access to data that helps optimize bids, potentially increasing conversions and lowering costs.

You might not need to import Google Analytics conversions if you already use Google Ads conversion tracking on a particular page. If you use both Universal Analytics and Google Analytics 4 properties to measure the same site, you'll likely set up conversion tracking in both properties. If you import the same conversion from each property for reporting and bidding purposes, you may see your conversions being counted twice (since the same conversion was imported twice). To avoid duplicate conversions, import a conversion only once across your Universal Analytics and Google Analytics 4 properties.

Before you begin

To start importing data, you'll need to link your Google Ads account to a Google Analytics account and turn on auto-tagging in your Google Ads account.


  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the tools icon Google Ads | tools [Icon] in the upper right corner of your account.
  3. Under "Measurement", click Conversions.
  4. Click the plus button .
  5. Select Import and then click Google Analytics (UA) (for Universal Analytics properties) or Google Analytics (GA4) (for Google Analytics 4 properties).
  6. Click Continue
  7. On the next page, select the features that you'd like to import, then click Import and continue.
  8. Click Done.

Google Ads will begin importing the data from your Analytics property. Historical data from before the import won't be included.

Keep in mind

It can take up to 24 hours before conversion data is available in Google Ads. Once it is, your imported conversions data will appear alongside your existing conversion data on the Conversions page, and you'll be able to customize columns on the Campaigns tab to include this data. Reports based on your imported conversions data may include modeled conversions as estimates in cases where Google can't observe all conversions. These are based on aggregated and anonymized data.

Once Analytics data (for example, goals) has been imported to Google Ads, it is subject to the Google Ads terms of service.

Edit conversion settings for imported conversions

Once you've imported your Analytics conversions, you can edit them in the same way that you edit conversion actions created in Google Ads.

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2.  Click the tools icon Google Ads | tools [Icon] in the upper right corner of your account.
  3. Under "Measurement", click Conversions.
  4. Click the name of the imported conversion that you want to edit.
  5. In the bottom right corner, click Edit Settings.
  6. Make any changes and click the Save button.

Data discrepancies

You might see discrepancies in the conversion statistics between Google Analytics and Google Ads conversion tracking. If you've double-checked that your setup is correct, here are some possible reasons for why you might see this:

Date of transaction

Google Ads reports conversions from the date and time of the click that led to the successful action, not from the date of the successful action itself.

For example, let's say someone saw your ad and clicked it on July 19, but did not make a purchase on your site until the next day, July 20. In Google Ads, the conversion would be attributed to July 19, the day of the click. In Google Analytics, however, the conversion is attributed to July 20, the day the conversion actually occurred.

Counting method

In Google Ads, you can choose to count either all or unique conversions by setting the counting method for each conversion action (including Analytics goals and transactions imported into Google Ads). The "Conversions" column in Google Ads will display conversions that happened within your chosen conversion window, according to your selected counting method. Analytics, however, counts all goals and transactions, which can cause discrepancies.


You've defined an Analytics goal for filling out a lead form. Someone fills out 2 lead forms (in different sessions) after an ad click, and Analytics shows them as 2 goal completions. You import this goal in Google Ads and set your counting method to "Unique," so you only see 1 conversion.

Invalid clicks
Some goals that are reported in Analytics might be filtered out when they're imported into your Google Ads account because of our invalid clicks technology, which doesn't record what seems like suspicious or invalid click activity.
Cookie expiration dates
Google Ads cookies expire 90 days after a customer's click, while Analytics uses a cookie that lasts for up to 2 years. Google Ads conversions can have a conversion window between 1 and 90 days. That means if a customer completed a conversion after the specified conversion window, the conversion wouldn't be recorded in Google Ads but it would still be recorded in Analytics if it occurred within 2 years of the click date.
Imported goal delays
Analytics conversions data is imported into conversion tracking up to 9 hours after the conversions have occurred.
Goal or view name changes in Analytics
If you change the name of a goal or a view containing your imported Analytics goals, these new names will be reflected in Google Ads after the goal was completed by a customer. The changes can take up to 24 hours to be reflected in your Google Ads account.
Deduplication of imported transactions from Analytics

Keep in mind that transaction IDs from Analytics will be imported as order IDs in Google Ads. Overlapping conversions will be automatically de-duplicated in your Google Ads account. Learn more

Transactions in Analytics with the same ID are only de-duplicated if they occur within the same session. Learn more

If the same transaction ID relates to multiple sessions, Analytics counts one transaction per session. When imported into Google Ads, only one transaction is counted per transaction ID. As a result, you may see less conversions (transactions) on Google Ads than on your Google Analytics reports.
