How to Effectively Integrate Looker Studio and GA4

Google Data Studio has rebranded and is now known as Looker Studio. Google Analytics 4 gives you insights into website performance and how users behave on your site.

But what is Looker Studio, and how do you connect it to Google Analytics 4?

In this comprehensive guide, I’ve broken down step-by-step how you integrate Looker Studio and Google Analytics 4.

What is Looker Studio?

Firstly, Looker Studio is free. It turns your data into informative, easy to interpret, simple to share and 100% customisable dashboards and detailed reports. It turns your dry data into digestible and engaging stories of insightful data art.

It also makes your reports interactive with viewer filters. This makes your presentation decks more flexible and inclusive. You can also annotate and brand your reports with text and images.

A world away from the previous iterations of Google Data Studio, Looker Studio is revolutionary. Easy to use and perfect for your Google Ad consultant, as it can be integrated with Google Analytics 4.
