Connecting to Google Ads Directly

Hi,

 

Is there a way to connect to PowerBI directly to Google Ads?

 

Kind regards

Hi @MissBI_21 I know this reply is very late. Since there’s no built-in connector for Google Ads to PBI anymore, you will have to look for another way. As a workaround, maybe you can use a 3rd party connector, it can save you a lot of time compared to the other options. I've tried windsor.ai, supermetrics and funnel.io. I stayed with windsor because it is much cheaper so just to let you know other options. In case you wonder, to make the connection first search for the Google Ads connector in the data sources list:

After that, just grant access to your Google Ads account using your credentials, then on preview and destination page you will see a preview of your Gads fields:

There just select the fields you need. Finally, just select PBI as your data destination and finally just copy and paste the url on PBI --> Get Data --> Web --> Paste the url.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your response and so sorry for my delayed response. With Google Ads, we have two different companies set up and ideally I want to be able to connect to the data from both companies in the same connector as the only way to connect to them is by having two different data sources.

Hi @MissBI_21 

Currently there isn't a specialized connector for Google Ads in Power BI.

I think you can try to connect to Google Ads by Google BigQuery or Google Analytics connector in Power BI Desktop.
