    How to set up auto-import for links

    If you want to capture organic links automatically, auto-importing is a great option. In fact, it’s the only option that doesn’t require any action from you once it’s set up.

    Here’s how to activate it for a campaign:

    1. Connect a Google Profile to this campaign if you haven’t already.
    2. Go to Metrics > Google Analytics.
      metrics google analytics
    3. Click the Customize Tool icon.
      google analytics customize tool icon
    4. Check “Enable” under Auto-Import.Auto-Import_option.png
    5. Click the Save Changes button.

    That’s it!

    When Google captures a new referral for your website, it will be added automatically as a link record in Link Manager.
