Creating an upload property

The Hero will create a new property in your Google Analytics account, that will contain all your GA data, your keywords and lots of new dimensions. We do this, so there is absolutely no way that anything could happen to your main GA account.

You have to give the Hero access to the Google Analytics Management API, so he can create it. However, he’ll only be able to do so if you have at least edit permissions on account level. If you don’t have them, Keyword Hero will tell you so.

How do I get edit permissions?

If you don’t have them, you should to the owner of the GA account. This is mostly your GA administrator. If you are the owner, you can just give them yourself.

  1. Open Google Analytics
  2. Click on “Admin” (bottom left)
  3. Select “User Management” in the leftmost column.

  1. Give yourself (or someone else) edit permissions.

But I already have edit permissions?

With almost 100% certainty you only have edit permissions for the property. In Admin, click on the leftmost “ACCOUNT” column and check there, whether you have them at the account level.
In case you actually do and in the Keyword Hero app, you still see that you don’t have them, please refresh your browser. If you still get the message, please write us an email: support@keyword-hero.com.

I can’t get edit permissions. What can I do?

If you can’t get them, there are three things you can do:

  1. You can create the upload property in a new Google Analytics account, such as your personal account or your agency account (just select in the leftmost column in Keyword Hero).

  1. Change the Google account, so use a different email (click the button CHANGE ACCOUNT).

change Google Account

  1. If everything else fails, you can just open a new GA account.
