Linking Google Ads

After you have successfully added the Google channel for your property we now need to go to connect the properties to your Google Ads account or your properties Ads account.

Create a CSV file for which properties to link

The Channex Google Hotel Centre will have lots of properties from different providers, so to connect your Google Ads account we need to know which properties to allow access for.

Please download this example CSV to see how it is made, you can edit it with your property information.

The contents of the CSV will look like this:

hotel_id

hotel_name (informational)

9a625b2c-623a-42d1-897b-b89aaae7c05b

Spilman

This example is only 1 property but you can add multiple if you wish by adding more lines

Hotel_id - This can be found in Channex Google Connection, just copy the ID of the channel.

Hotel_name - This is just extra information, it's not important what the name is.

How to get property ID from Channex to fill the CSV

Go to: https://app.channex.io/channels

Enter the property name in the top right corner and you will see all channels set up for that property.

Find the "Google Hotel Ads" connection and edit it.

Copy the "ID" at the top of the settings (We added a copy icon to make it simple for you)

Paste ID into the CSV file and add the name of the property

Make sure there is a comma separating the id and the hotel name. Multiple hotels can be added on new lines.

Connect a Google Ads account to Google Hotel Centre

In order to bid on your properties in the ad auction you need to connect your Google Ads account to your property in the Hotel Centre.

Please email me at evan@channex.io with the Google Ads ID (Can be found at top of page in Google Ads admin)

It will look like this format: 810-078-7858

Step 1: Copy the Google Ads ID of the client and we will invite the account

How to accept a connection
