Paid traffic is showing as organic

[ Edited ]

I have a site I've been running for a couple months.  Starting on Dec 20th all of my paid traffic from adwords has been showing up as organic.  Prior to the 20th it was showing as paid.

 

Also, adwords stopped showing conversions around the same time.  Analytics shows 5 conversions in the last week, and adwords shows 0.

 

I have my adwords and analytics linked, and auto tagging is enabled.  I have also imported my goals into adwords.  As I said, it was working until the 20th.

 

How can I fix this problem?

I figured out the cause of the problem. I had a redirect on the page that my ad was sending traffic to. Apparently that caused the adwords data to disappear. I removed the redirect and now the paid visitors are showing up in analytics. I assume this will fix the missing conversions too.
