Automatically detect if Google AdWords and Google Analytics are properly linked

Is there a way to automatically detect if Google AdWords and Google Analytics are not properly linked.
We had in the past the problem that because of incorrect linking Paid Search traffic was recorded as Organic traffic. How can we prevent this effectively, maybe through email alerts?

Hi @Curious,

 

You'll want to check in your Google Analytics account under Admin -> Property -> AdWords Linking that you have at least one linked account and one linked view:

Hi Kathleen,

This is a manual check, but how can we create automatic alerts that all accounts are properly linked.

Hi Curious,
At this time there is no automated feature that reports this.
