How to connect Bing Ads to Google Data Studio?
If you’ve ever used Google Ads, it won’t be too difficult to explain Microsoft Ads to you, nor will it be difficult to import Bing Ads data into Looker Studio.
Sure, Google is the largest Search Engine, but it isn’t the only one, so why would you want to give up on Microsoft Advertising, especially if you integrate the data into Looker Studio?! All data will be available and you will be able to effectively measure the success of your Microsoft Ads and compare it against the other channels that you’re using.
Think of Looker Studio as a canvas where you can customize your metrics and dimensions and set up a tailored dashboard based on your needs. Let’s say that you are showing your results to someone who is not directly involved in the marketing process, you will probably want the presentation to be as visual as possible.
Let’s say that you are running campaigns across a range of geos, all over the globe and your stakeholders want to see the CPA figures and how they vary by country. It will be much better to use one of the visualizations that will present the metric on the map of the world rather than a table or a sheet.
Select the fields on the right to later use in your data source. For example, you can include metrics such as Cost per Click, Cost per Action or Total Spend. Go to “Select Destination” and choose Looker Studio. Once done, select “connect” and authorize access to your data source.
