Can't link Analytics to Adwords

I am using the same Google account for both Analytics and Adwords and have Admin rights in both.  I'm trying to follow the instructions outlined at: http://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704341?hl=en

 

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?

I am not sure why that is, but try drilling further down, into a profile, and than check profile settings, where you possibly could choose cost source

Hmmm...Interesting;

Is auto-tagging in Adwords enabled?

Thanks. Tried that and even set it to "Yes, an Ecommerce Site" even though it isn't to see if that might add the Data Sources tab... but no luck.

Thanks. Auto-tagging wasn't enabled so I enabled it and still no Data Sources tab. Any other ideas?

After enabling auto tagging wait 24 hrs. That should resolve the issue.

Please report back
