What is the best third-party reporting tool for AdWords?
That’s one frequent question we see on the Internet. And that’s also a tricky question. The short answer is : It depends!
We could list many great tools. DashThis is one of them, of course. But I think you must think about your needs first as I could suggest a game of Tetris when all you need is a jigsaw puzzle.
Here are six questions to ask when looking for an Adwords reporting tool:
Who is the end user that will read the report?
A data-driven marketing executive might need a more complex report as opposed to the local small business owner who will prefer a quick and concise look at the bottom line. DashThis is better for simpler reports. More in-depth BI reports might better be built with Tableau. Continue reading »

We just added two new Adwords metrics. As you may know, Adwords handle conversions in two ways: Counting one conversion per click or many conversions per click. Here are the definitions for both according to Google Adwords:
Conversions (1-per-click) count a conversion for every AdWords ad click resulting in a conversion within your chosen conversion window. This means if more than one conversion happens following a single ad click, conversions after the first will not count. This metric is useful for measuring conversions approximating unique customer acquisitions such as leads and sign-ups.
Conversions (many-per-click) count a conversion every time a conversion is made after an AdWords click, within your chosen conversion window. Conversions (many-per-click) will count multiple conversions per click. This metric is useful for measuring conversions that are valuable every time that they happen such as purchases.
Thus, we updated DashThis to support two new metrics:
- Conversion Rate (Many Per Click) which is Conversions (Many Per Click) / Clicks
- Average Conversion Value (Many Per Click) which is Conversion Value / Conversions (Many Per Click)
We hope this helps you create better reports. Let us know if you have any comments or suggestions to improve your best reporting tool!
