So in this article, I will be explaining how you can monitor your Google Ads performance using Google Analytics. To do that, you need to link both accounts together, they don't come together as a combo suite, so you have to initiate a synchronization of data between your Google Ads account and Analytic.
First, you need to have created your campaign on your Google ads account, something worth mentioning, previously you were required to do your linking of accounts and products via settings and later on via tools, but recently Google ads have moved this activity to the "data manager" page as seen in the image below, make sure you are signed into your campaign account before clicking the link.

When you have done this, you need to also visit your Google Analytics 4 dashboard to link the Google Adsense Campaign ID to your analytic dashboard. To do this, click on the ADMIN screw icon at the bottom of the page, then click on property settings with a drop-down of tabs, click on the product links tab,  and click on the Google ads link (not the Google Adsense link).
