#8 Google Analytics
Google Analytics (GA) is a must-use AdWords tool. The AdWords interface is great at showing you cost and click data. But how will you know what visitors do on your landing pages? That’s where Google Analytics comes into the picture.

Also, integrating GA with AdWords allows you to push conversion tracking, remarketing and cost data back and forth between both interfaces.

GA has eleven reports and counting that are specific to AdWords.

Think of Google Analytics as the jelly in your AdWords peanut butter.
