How to Link Google AdSense Account with Google Analytics Account

If you use AdSense, it is advisable that you can link your Google AdSense account with Google Analytics account so you can use the Analytics to give context to your AdSense data and get a better understanding of your AdSense performance. This is required of you if you want to really understand what gets you more revenue with AdSense. To do this, you must use the same email address in Analytics and AdSense to link your accounts, and have edit or admin permission in both accounts.

Please note, Google Analytics will only record data for AdSense content ad units, and doesn’t include link units, search boxes, mobile ads, or any other AdSense products. Also, you must include Analytics tracking code on every webpage running AdSense for content ad units to match in both Analytics and AdSense reports.

In Analytics, click Link Accounts.
