Remarketing Code Not Being Read

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to set up the Remarketing Tag, Adwords doesn't seem to be reading it. 

 

When I go to Shared Library -> Audiences, it shows that it's not detecting the Adwords tag on my site. (Screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/MYp150OgZa). 

 

However, I followed their instructions and added the tag 3 days ago. Here are the instructions:

 

<!-- Google Code for Remarketing Tag -->
<!--------------------------------------------------
Remarketing tags may not be associated with personally identifiable information or placed on pages related to sensitive categories. See more information and instructions on how to setup the tag on: http://google.com/ads/remarketingsetup
--------------------------------------------------->
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <![CDATA[ */
var google_conversion_id = 1022708939;
var google_custom_params = window.google_tag_params;
var google_remarketing_only = true;
/* ]]> */
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js">
</script>
<noscript>
<div style="display:inline;">
<img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="//googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/viewthroughconversion/1022708939/?value=0&amp;guid=ON&amp;script=0"/>
</div>
</noscript>

 

Here is a screenshot of the sourcecode of my site, showing the code implemented: http://screencast.com/t/IOxpeblQDoh

 

The site is aardvarkisrael.com

Can anyone help figure out why Google's not reading it?

Hi Nick
I've checked your site and the remarketing tag is installed correctly.
It just takes some time for Google to pick it up as it adds users/cookies.

Give it 24 hours and you should see the green check mark.

Hi Dave,

Thanks. The code was installed 3 days ago, any other ideas?

Are you sure?
Google Tag Assistant shows that it's installed correctly.

The site will need visitors too. I've visited it so I'm on your remarketing list. Is your GA data showing visitors? (non spam visitors)

Yes, GA shows normal activity from non-spam visitors. I can see real-time
visitors, as well, so I know GA is currently working.

Are your lists populating? If you look in the audiences section of your shared library, you should see if there's anyone in your list yet. You'll need at least 1000 people in it to use it. Do you have that many?

Are you using remarketing in GA also?

Looking into this. It might be that the GA account is linked to another
Adwords account...Thank you for your help!
