Reporting on Google Ads Video / Youtube Campaigns?


Has anyone had any luck pulling metrics for Video Ads run through Google Ads?


I tried using the Google Analytics connector and pulling in data from the Adwords section, but they don't have Video Views as a Metric.


Is there any way I can pull in our Spend, Impressions, and Views from the Youtube/Video Campaigns we are running in Google Ads?

    When interacting with Google Ads I've had to do it two separate ways (I didn't have access to BigQuery at the time).


    The first was writing a custom Python script to query the Google Ads API for the information I needed and then utilized the Domo API to upload that dataset into Domo. It's a very technical process and you'll need a deep knowledge of how APIs work.


    The second way is actually outlined in a help document to pull the data into Google Sheets using the Google Ads custom programming language and then using a Google Sheets connector within Domo to ingest the data. You'd also need to utilize a self referencing data flow since you'd eventually run out of cells to store information within Google Sheets.

    There's a really handy knowledgebase article ( which outlines this whole process.


    The third option is to connect using the Google AdWords connector for BigQuery if you have that available.


    Hope this help!
