When you connect your Google and/or Adobe Analytics account to your Cision Communications Cloud, you will be able to see traffic and related statistics in the profiles of News clips that contribute traffic to your monitored site. You will also see a variety of related data in the Outlet Conversions tab of your platform. When a Google Analytics account is connected, you will see data such as Outlet Name, Count of Referrals, Goal Completions, Revenue, Page Views, and Average Session Length in the Outlet Conversions tab of the platform. With a connected Adobe Analytics account, you will see data such as Average Seconds on Page, Checkouts, Orders, and Revenue.  You can learn more about the different Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics integrations here. Both Google and Adobe Analytics accounts can be connected to each data group within the Cision Communications Cloud.


Important Considerations 

Once an account is connected, it may take up to 24 hours to data to populate in the Cision Communications Cloud. Upon initial connection of a Google Analytics account, the past 30 days of data will be pulled into the Cision Communications Cloud. If you switch the account that is connected, it is important to note that that you will initially see data from both accounts for several days.
