Using Statcounter

View Google Ads Keywords in Statcounter

So you already know statcounter is a powerful too to combat click fraud. You know how to use filters to zoom in on your paid traffic, but you don't know how to view your Google Ads keywords from your statcounter reports. This is because by default Google Ads will not send the keyword data. This article is a step by step guide to start getting keyword data like you see here:

Please note you will need to modify your landing page URL which will require your ads to be reviewed by Google again. Your ads will stop showing during this review. Do not perform this during a busy period for your ads on Google. The review typically takes less than 30 minute but it depends on your account and Google.

Let's Get Started

  1. Log in to Google Ads.
  2. Click "All Campaigns"
  3. Click "Settings"
  4. Click "Account Settings"
  5. Click "Tracking"
  6. In the Final URL suffix box enter:
    utm_source=googleads&vt_keyword={keyword}
  7. Click "Save"

Your ads will now be placed in review, as soon as Google reviews them, your Google Ads keywords will start showing up in your statcounter reports.

      The keywords on which the ads are triggered will be displayed in Statcounter.

      You can see the user search terms in an aggregate report in google ads.
