2 google analytics account linked to 1 AdWords account

I have 2 similar google analytics account linked to AdWords, the tracker for both GA accounts are installed on the same page. Will that be a problem when the data is imported into AdWords? Will AdWords double count as a result?

 

Also if there are identical conversion goals on each GA account, and both are imported into AdWords, will AdWords double count? Or will it show 1 conversion for each goal?

Hi Alvin,

Yes, this will be a problem when you import the Google Analytics columns into AdWords, and if you allow both sets of goals to be imported. I would recommend unlinking one of the accounts from your AdWords accounts, or better yet, just using one Google Analytics account and removing the other code from the website. That way there is no confusion about where the reporting is coming from and which metrics you are optimizing around.

Let me know if you have any more questions about this!

Thanks CassieH, I have followed your advice and unlinked one of the accounts from the AdWords account.

I had not previously import goals from both accounts, only one of them. Hope that there is minimal or no impact during the period where both accounts were linked.

Hi Alvin,

You shouldn't have any lingering issues, especially since you had not imported the other set of goals and were only optimizing your account off of the first set. Unlinking the other account will also remove that data from the Google Analytics columns you can import!
