I have a group of Adwords account under one MCC. All accounts belong to one client. I linked MCC to Google Analytics so that I can port the goals from GA into a specific AW account under the MCC but I am getting the message that GA is not linked. What am I missing?

Hi Sueh! Thanks for reaching out to us on the Community. I’m happy to help you with the issue of linking your Google Analytics account to the MCC Account and import goals therefrom.


To address the first part of the issue, let’s run through the checklist of steps that are required to link the Analytics Account to an AdWords MCC Account. I’d recommend you to go through the article below for the detailed instructions with all steps to ensure that the linking has been complete:

Also, make sure that once you’ve set up the link between the two accounts, the views which have the goals that you want to import into your AdWords account have also been linked.


Once this is done, the second requirement to be able to import Analytics goals is to turn on Auto-tagging in your AdWords Account. To check if Auto-tagging is on in the accounts, please check the article below:


Once the account linking is complete, it can take up to 30 minutes for the established link to be reflected in the account and the imports to be ready. Please allow the account this time before the next steps can be taken!


In case these steps still don’t help you get to the root issue, here are two very helpful troubleshooters on account linking and goal importing respectively:


Hope this helps! Please feel free to write back in case there are any further doubts!
