Ads Data Hub

Tailor your marketing measurement approach to your unique business needs. Ads Data Hub enables customized analysis that aligns with your specific business objectives, while respecting user privacy and upholding Google’s high standards of data security.

With Ads Data Hub, you can upload your first-party data into BigQuery and join it with Google’s event-level ad campaign data. Combining your data with Google's event data can unlock insights, improve advertising efficiency, help you achieve data-driven business goals, and yield more effective campaign optimization. Results from Ads Data Hub are aggregated over a group of users, which allows Google to provide more complete data and still maintain end-user privacy.

A privacy-centric data warehouse

Because Ads Data Hub is built with privacy restrictions, its functionality differs significantly from other data warehousing solutions. Even experts with experience using other clean rooms and data warehousing solutions may need to learn how to operate effectively in Ads Data Hub.

Unlike other data warehousing solutions, with Ads Data Hub:

  • You can’t inspect the underlying data, as doing so would violate Ads Data Hub’s goal to share data in aggregate to prevent the re-identification of end users.
  • When privacy checks are triggered, rows can be filtered without warning.
  • Some privacy checks compare against your historical results, and can be triggered if your results don’t change adequately between jobs.
  • The data that feeds into Ads Data Hub is mutable and subject to change.

In order to help users operate effectively amidst privacy checks in Ads Data Hub, the platform includes a synthetic dataset. This dataset isn’t subject to privacy checks, and as such should be used for experimentation and query development. The sandbox can improve your query development workflow by giving you a better understanding of the underlying data.
