Analytics remarketing lists in Adwords don't show any data

Hi,

 

I added the remarketing code as it is said by changing just one line (one time) of your Google Analytics tracking code. I didn't add the Adwords remarketing code as it said the GA would be enough. I made different remarketing lists in GA, which I also connected to my Google Adwords account. 

The lists can be seen in Adwords/audiences (and it shows an Active GA tag), but only some of them are showing a number at the list size.

 

I know that it may take some days to update, but after 3 days i still have no data, to be honest i only have some of them which makes the whole thing more interesting.

 

For example i made 2 custom segmentation remarketing lists to see who clicked on my site from the email i sent:

 - One of them is: Campaign name=teasing1st and the other is Medium name=email. They were used in the same URL! The first one shows no number, the second shows 8 visitors. In the GA reports I can see 12.

 

- I also wanted to check the openings of the email so i used a suggestion seen in Cutroni's blog post:

Code example used in my email:

www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1&tid=UA-XX-Y&cid=[UniqueID]&t=event&ec=Email&ea=Open&el=BackToSc...

 

I made a remarketing list to collect those who made the event action: open.

Same problem: I can see 82 opens in mailchimp, same user number in GA (Events stats), but nothing in my Adwords list!

 

Did i miss some kind of setup? Why are the others working and these not?

 

Thanks,

Johanna

Hey Johanna,

With such low numbers it may be a simple case of adwords has not populated the list until it has more numbers.

Hi,  thanks. Yeah I was thinking about the same before I got some really small numbers on couple of the lists. 

See prntscr below. That was when i started to be confused:
