Lesson 1: Intro – Setting the Scene

Before diving into analysis and making data-driven decisions, it’s crucial to have trust in the data being collected. We will guide you through the essential steps to ensure accurate data collection in Google Ads and GA – and take action together if needed.

Here’s an overview of what we will cover:

  • Linking Google Ads & GA4: We will link your Google Ads and GA4 accounts, establishing a seamless connection between the platforms.
  • Enabling Google Signals and Important Settings: We will dive deep into GA4 and Google Ads settings, ensuring that Google Signals is enabled, along with other crucial configurations to optimize data collection.

Lesson 2: Standard Google Ads Reports in GA4

Standard Google Ads Reports in GA4
In Lesson 2, we will explore the powerful standard reports available in GA4 for measuring the performance of your Google Ads campaigns. You can view classic Google Analytics metrics such as:

  • Users (+Sessions)
  • New Users

by Google Ads

  • Account
  • Campaign
  • Ad Group
  • Keyword (+Search Term)
  • Landing Page.

We will dive deep into these metrics and understand how to analyze Google Ads campaigns in Google Analytics 4.

Lesson 3: Products & Categories Analysis (PPC Filtered in GA4)

Product Category Performance Reports in GA4
Understanding the performance of individual products and collections is crucial, especially in the era of Performance Max campaigns. By gaining insights into which products and collections receive clicks and how they perform, you can optimize your ads effectively by focusing on the winners and pausing the underperforming ones.

In Lesson 3, we will dive into the specifics of your campaigns by conducting a comprehensive analysis of products and categories within GA4.

We will create a custom report and view Products & Collections with the following metrics:

  • Items Viewed
  • Added to Cart (Select Item for Collection Pages)
  • Item Revenue
  • Total Users
  • Purchases
  • Conversion rate
  • First-time purchasers
  • 90-days active users
  • ARPU


Lesson 4: Landing Page Analysis (PPC Filtered)

Landing Page Reports in GA4
Understanding the performance of your landing pages is crucial, as every click comes at a cost.

Landing page reports provide valuable insights distinct from product/category performance reports, allowing you to uncover opportunities for optimization and identify areas where you may be losing money.

In this lesson, we will add a PPC filter in Google Analytics 4 and view landing pages with the following metrics:

  • Sessions & Users (+New)
  • Avg Engagement Time
  • Conversion Rate
  • Campaign as a Secondary Dimension
  • First-time purchasers
  • 90-days active users
  • ARPU

By analyzing these metrics, you will gain a deeper understanding of which landing pages are driving the most profit and which ones may be causing losses.

Lesson 5: Segments & Audiences in GA4

Segments in GA4
In Lesson 5, we will explore the powerful features of Segments & Audiences in GA4. Segments allow you to create different viewpoints by applying specific filters to view GA4 reports. This lets you analyze data from different perspectives and gain valuable insights into user behavior and campaign performance.

Some segment examples could be:

  1. Visitors from All PPC Campaigns
  2. Visitors from Only PMax Campaigns
  3. Visitors from A Specific Campaign

This way, you can view all GA4 reports using different segments and compare the user behaviors.

Audiences will enable you for more profound insights – and also importable to Google Ads for Ads targeting. Example audiences:

  • Purchasers
  • Non-Purchasers
  • Added to cart but not Purchased
  • Viewed X Collection – not Purchased

In this way, you can target these audiences differently in separate campaigns and do many other things in Google Ads.

Lesson 6: Attribution Models & Modal Comparisons

GA4 Modal Comparison Report
In this lesson, we will explore attribution models and model comparisons to gain a deeper understanding of how different attribution models impact the evaluation of your campaign performance. Attribution models determine how credit for conversions is assigned to different touchpoints along the customer journey.
