Reporting

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Reports provide information about all the different resources in your account. You can fetch information about campaigns, ad groups, and their stats, change history for your account, and more. The reporting infrastructure is backed by the Google Ads API and uses GAQL to specify what fields, metrics, and conditions you want to set.

There are two main mechanisms for reporting. They both accept the same kinds of queries, and differ primarily in how they return the results.

For both cases, we will use the following query:

SELECT
  campaign.id,
  campaign.status,
  metrics.clicks,
  metrics.impressions,
  customer.id
FROM campaign
WHERE
  metrics.impressions > 0
AdsApp.report()
This will return a flat, dictionary-like representation of your search results. You can access fields as if using a dictionary, such as row["campaign.id"] and row["metrics.impressions"] directly. By using this format, you can export the results directly to a spreadsheet using the exportToSheet() method. This is not the native format that results are returned in by the Google Ads API, so in some cases some fields may not be available in this format. If that is the case, you should use search instead.
AdsApp.search()
This will return a list of GoogleAdsRow objects, which have various fields, each of which may have sub-fields. So you would access row.campaign.id and row.metrics.impressions to fetch the data. This is generally more useful if you plan to process the data programmatically, and some fields may only be available in the search format if they cannot be converted to a flat representation.

Report Example

let report = AdsApp.report(
    "SELECT " +
    " ad_group.id, search_term_view.search_term, metrics.ctr, metrics.cost_micros, metrics.impressions " +
    "FROM search_term_view " +
    "WHERE metrics.impressions < 10 AND segments.date DURING LAST_30_DAYS");

let rows = report.rows();
while (rows.hasNext()) {
    let row = rows.next();
    let query = row["search_term_view.search_term"];
    let impressions = row["metrics.impressions"];
}

Take a look at the AdsApp.report documentation for full details on using this view.

Search Example

let search = AdsApp.search(
    "SELECT " +
    " ad_group.id, search_term_view.search_term, metrics.ctr, metrics.cost_micros, metrics.impressions " +
    "FROM search_term_view " +
    "WHERE metrics.impressions < 10 AND segments.date DURING LAST_30_DAYS");

while (search.hasNext()) {
    let row = search.next();
    let query = row.searchTermView.searchTerm;
    let impressions = row.metrics.impressions;
}
