Can't link Adwords to Google Analytics

Hi,

 

I am having trouble linking Adwords to Google Analytics. I am following the instructions in this help article but hit a road block at STEP 6. when it asks me to select a 'Data Sources' tab. I don't have one.

 

Help Article: https://support.google.com/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&utm_id=ad&answer=1033961

 

Can anyone follow the steps them selves and see if you have the same problem.

 

I have looked everywhere for an alternative place that this could be and had no luck. I am guessing the instructions are out of date.

 

Any advice. Regards Dean

Hi Flux;

 

"Make sure that you're using a Google Account email address that has access to both your Analytics and AdWords accounts, and is an Administrator for both accounts."

 

Do both accounts have access?

Hello,

Go to Google analytics>> Click Admin>> Click All Accounts>> Click Name of Your Account

Here you will find Data sources.

 

EDIT: If still you not seeing Data Sources, let me know i will provide screenshots.

I'm having the same problem.  I am using the same Google account for both Analytics and Adwords and have Admin rights in both.  In Analytics I can see the Data Sources tab but it says:

 

To link your AdWords account, please access this page via the Google Analytics option under the Tools & Analysis tab in AdWords.

 

When I go to AdWords, the Data Sources tab is not there.  There are only Assets, Users, Goals, Filters, and Profile Settings.

 

Any ideas?
