No effect at all.

In fact, that very question is bizarre. It suggest your have no idea how any of the technologies involved work.

Hey Marko, how are things?

The meta "no index no follow" won't have any effect on Adwords, so don't worry about it Smiley Happy

One thing to keep in mind though, is that there may be some conflicts on the file robots.txt. There're cases when you block Google bots on robots.txt and your ads on Adwords cannot be verified and get disapproved, so watch out for that.

Hope this helps.

To Micheal: People aren't born knowing if noindex nofollow tags would affect GA or Adwords conversion tracking. I've been doing SEO for 6+ years and I work for Google (through Cognizant) and I came here with the same question. Geez. I was almost 100% sure that they're not linked, but even that 0.1% chance of the tags affecting GA/Adwords conversion tracking would ruin much of what I' trying to do for my client, so why not spend the extra minute to make sure. As anyone in SEO/SEM/Analytics should know, being precise and meticulous is so important.
