At this time Tableau Desktop supports connections to two Google services, Google Bigquery and Google Analytics. It is possible to link a Google Adsense account to Google Analytics. Linking these two accounts would make it possible to natively connect to the data using Google Analytics. Please see the links below for more information on linking the accounts and connecting Google Analytics to Tableau Desktop.
Link an AdSense account to an Analytics account
(Desktop Help Home > Connect to Data > Basic Connection > Examples - Connecting to Data Sources > Google Analytics)
If it is not possible to use Google Analytics to connect to the data it is also possible to export Google Adsense data to a CSV or Excel file. Please note, when connecting to certain data sources, such as Microsoft Excel, Access, or plain text (CSV) files the Microsoft JET Database Engine is used. The Microsoft JET Database Engine has a few limitations that may affect how Tableau Desktop functions. For example JET has a data limitation of 4GB and additionally limits the data to a maximum of 65,535 rows, 255 columns and 255 characters per field. For more information on exporting data from Google Adsense please refer to this Google Adsense support page:
