How does B2Metric get data via Google Analytics 4?


To connect your GA4 to B2Metric IQ Analytics, you must first transfer your data to BigQuery via GA4. 


B2Metric IQ Analytics makes a detailed analysis of raw data. That's why it doesn't receive data directly over GA4. GA4 exports data in aggregate. Making analyses on more detailed and raw data allows you to reach more clear and more explainable results, not approximate results. All B2Metric reports are created with their own query analysis.



How to stream from Google Analytics to BigQuery?


Connecting GA4 to BigQuery is very simple. You can export your data to BigQuery Cloud Console by following the steps below:


1) In Google Analytics, click Admin.

2) Make sure you are in the correct account and property.

3) In the Property column, under PRODUCT LINKS, click BigQuery Links.

4) Click Link.

5) Click Choose a BigQuery project to display a list of projects you can access.

If you have linked Analytics and Firebase (or plan to), consider exporting to the same Cloud project, which will facilitate easier joins with other Firebase data.

6) Select a project from the list, then click Confirm.

7) Select a location for the data. (If your project already has a dataset for the Analytics property, you can't configure this option.)

8) Click Next.

9) Select Configure data streams and events to select which data streams to include with the export and specific events to exclude from the export. You can exclude events by either clicking Add to select from a list of existing events or by clicking Specify event by name to choose existing events by name or to specify event names that have yet to be collected on the property.

10) Click Done.

11) Select Include advertising identifiers for mobile app streams if you want to include advertising identifiers.

12) Select either or both a Daily (once a day) or Streaming (continuous) export of data.

13) Click Next.

14) Review your settings, then click Submit.
