Can't connect my Google Adwords account to Google My business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a number of clients on both Adwords and My business.  I cannot seem to connect the two.  I have seen the tutorials and Q&A on these forums.  In some explanations that Google My places pops up when you go to add a location extension.  I am assuming that in order for it to do that there must already be some link between adwords and my business.  I don't see this.  I don't see it in business data.  the email address managing both accounts is the same.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Bert,

 

if you really manage both accounts - Google AdWords and Google My Business, then you should just easily connect these two by loggin in to your AdWords account -> Ad Extensions -> Location extension from dropdown menu. Then click on +Locations(big red button) and you should see available locations you can add to your AdWords account. If not you can try to choose the other option and send a request to your Google My Business account. You can confirm this request here: https://business.google.com/manage/#/adwordsmanage

You have to be a manager of the GMB account to link it to AdWords. Either the owner has to make you a manager, or they have to go into the AdWords account (with the same email) and add the GMB account.

Hey Tomas,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

The issue was I had a local address set up in that account and so when adding another it wouldn't show the pop up to the Google My Business.
