Adwords shows no recent conversions for one analytics goal

Hi.

 

I have two goals set up on my site, one for click through to the store (uses async library) and one for order purchase (uses traditional snippet).

 

For both of these goals they show up fine in Google Analytics.  The "Admin"->"Goals" page shows in the past 7 days each received conversions.

 

In Google Adwords (for 7 days or "All Time" it doesn't matter), they have different statuses:

1. store click through - "Reporting" and a number of conversions.

2. new orders - "No recent conversions" and no conversions.

 

What would cause one of my Analytics goals to not be fed to Adwords?

 

Thanks, James.

One thing to bear in mind.... Goals in Analytics will report goal completions from ALL visitors - only those that came from AdWords visitors will be fed back into AdWords - are you sure that you are only looking at the Adwords visitors in Analytics?

Same issue for me now.

 

My "purchase" goal is hitting in Analytics, but not the "get to cart" goal. Analytics confirms that paid-traffic source customers are hitting both goals.

Similar for me:

In Analytics I can see the conversions but not in Adwords.
Looking forward for advise or help!

Hey guys, 

 

To import your goals and Ecommerce transactions from Google Analytics into AdWords Conversion Tracking, the following conditions must apply:

  • Your Analytics and AdWords accounts are linked.
  • You've opted into data sharing in your Analytics account.
  • You've enabled auto-tagging in your AdWords account.
  • On a per-type basis, your Analytics goal or transaction has received active traffic from an AdWords ad at some point.
Find more information here and let us know if you're still stuck.

These are the steps that I (and probably others here) have used to set up the goals. The result is that only some of those conversions are actually triggering in AdWords. However they all trigger in Analytics.

Would be great if AdWords were scrapped and the team that made (and keeps reinventing) Analytics would replace them. But until then we are left with integrations that will continue to have bugs like this.

I totaly agree with William E, this is what I already checked step for step to find the problem. As William mentioned, in Analytics works everything properly but in Adwords I cant see the results.

I confirm that we have the same problem: goals tracked in GA but nothing imported in Adwords. the "reporting view" is set up correctly in Adwords.

Hi Avanquest,
Are there any re-directs in your URLs from your AdWords Ads? Do your customers leave your website at any point to pay for the purchase (ie use pay pal)?

When you look at your ECommerce reporting and segment to see only Paid Traffic, is there information there?
