    Google Signals upgrades existing advertising features to enable the following:

    • Remarketing with Google Analytics: Serve ads in Cross Device-eligible remarketing campaigns to Google users who have turned on Ads Personalization.
    • Advertising Reporting Features: Google Analytics will collect additional information about users who have turned on Ads Personalization.
    • Demographics and Interests report: Google Analytics will collect additional information about users who have turned on Ads Personalization.
    • Cross-Device reports (in beta): Based on aggregated data from users who have turned on Ads Personalization, Google Analytics models behavior for a whole user base across device types.

    In a help document, Google explains why Google Signals is dependent on data from users who have turned on Ads Personalization.

    “When users turn on Ads Personalization, Google is able to develop a holistic view of how those users interact with an online property from multiple browsers and multiple devices… Because of the large volume of data generated by users who have turned on Ads Personalization, Google is able to estimate from that data the cross-device behavior of your entire user base.”

    Activating Google Signals is necessary for reporting on cross-device user journeys, as well as remarketing to signed-in Google users.

    Activate Google Signals by following the steps below:

    • Sign in to Google Analytics.
    • Click “GET STARTED” in the blue notification banner at the top of the page, or navigate to Property column > Tracking info > Data Collection and follow the prompt in the blue dialog.
    • Click through the information and activation panels.
    • Read the information about Google signals, then click “CONTINUE.”
    • Activate Google signals.

    The option to activate Google Signals will be rolling out to all users in the coming weeks.

    Some are already seeing it now. So if you don’t see it now, you will soon.
